Victoria Lowell is a financial coach, which – in her words – is much like a life coach, a pitching coach, or swim coach. She is also an AFCPE® Member and AFC® candidate who is passionate about empowering women with the knowledge and skills to take a leading role in their own financial well-being.
AFCPE: What led you to career in personal finance?
Victoria: I was in the financial services industry for about 7 years and I kept encountering women who were hesitant to embrace their finances because they feel they lack basic personal finance knowledge. This realization inspired me to start Empowered Worth.
AFCPE: Tell us more about your business and the philosophy behind it?
Victoria: Empowered Worth offers personal finance education and coaching through an online school and one-on-one virtual coaching. We also offer local workshops in the Miami area only at this time. Our philosophy is to empower women to empower their worth thereby increasing their self-worth as they embrace and increase their net worth.
AFCPE: Love it! You are currently pursuing your AFC® certification. What led you to enroll in this program, and what have you learned throughout the process?
Victoria: Education and Community. I wanted to increase my knowledge so that I could better help my clients. I also wanted my clients to know that I was held to a certain professional standard by an independent entity.
AFCPE: What’s next for you? What has you most excited?
This August my first book, Empower your Worth, will be available on Amazon. We have our podcast starting August as well. Lastly, we are planning on launching all of our products and resources in Spanish in the Spring of 2020.
Victoria answers the Friday 5:
- My Why: Because the cycle of women abdicating their financial power must stop.
- My Favorite Quote: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~ Maya Angelou
- My Hero: My Grandmother, Berta.
- My Favorite Personal Finance Resource: The Empowered Worth website of course! All kidding aside, I suggest my clients start by just reading about finance – Money Magazine, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, etc.
- My Best Advice: Don’t get overwhelmed. Personal Finance education is like the old saying, “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.”
