“I realized there was an opportunity for me to take my experience and help other women take a more active role in their financial planning and future.”Jessica Garcia, Founder of Brainstorming Women
Jessica Garcia is the Founder of BrainstormingWomen, a business dedicated to empowering women through financial literacy. She started her business in 2015 after she realized there was a need to educate women on financial matters. Throughout her more than 20-year career in Finance and Banking, Jessica frequently encountered women who did not have a strong understanding of their finances. “I realized there was an opportunity for me to take my experience and help other women take a more active role in their financial planning and future,” she said.
Through her business, Jessica helps her clients, mostly women, to build budgets and create business plans. “It’s so important to understand each client’s goals and priorities to help them stay on track,” she said. She was approached by an attorney who asked her to help put together their finances for a divorce, which led her to obtaining a certification as a Divorce Financial Analyst. She helps couples put together financial plans and budgets pre and post divorce, saving them time and money in the long run.
Jessica helps clients by collecting their financial documents and using them to build their financial picture. Your financial picture is made up of income, expenses, assets, and liability. Through her services, Jessica helps clients become more familiar and comfortable with the financial language. “We look at the whole picture to help them make sound financial decisions,” she said.
I love what Jessica does because I can see the need and value for this service offering-especially among women. I too was a woman who had trouble understanding the various aspects of finance until about three years ago. She’s changing the conversation and giving women the power to take ownership of their finances while giving them the confidence to make sound financial decisions.
BrainstormingWomen has offices based in Charlotte and Raleigh and is open between 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. For more information about Jessica and her business, visit https://brainstormingwomen.com/.
