Discovering Your Financial Fingerprint

By Sandra Williams

Dycelia Weiss is a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. She has been a resident of Spokane for eleven years and “a servant of God for thirty years.” Dycelia is also a Christian Financial Educator.

“Even in this time of unprecedented access to information,” Dycelia says, “there remains a lack of financial knowledge amongst individuals and families.” As a result, Dycelia is focused on helping her clients understand “fundamental financial concepts that will give them the foundation to create a sound financial strategy so they can build a better tomorrow for themselves and for their loved ones.”

Dycelia is an independent associate with World Financial Group, Inc. (WFG), which is a national financial services marketing company with associates throughout the United States, that strives to help individuals and families that are often overlooked by the financial services industry. As an associate with WFG, Dycelia educates individuals and families on financial concepts, and offers financial products and solutions, including life and health insurance. Additionally, Dycelia is able to introduce interested entrepreneurs to the WFG business opportunity.

An entrepreneur herself, Dycelia started her own business in 2013, founding Weiss Financial Consulting, something she says, “has opened a whole new world to me.” As a part of her business, Dycelia offers monthly interactive workshops and seminars in the community, where she focuses on teaching the cognitive development of our financial decision making. For example: What is your earliest memory surrounding money? How was money modeled in your life?

The answers to these questions can have an impact on how we view and handle our money, and learning the answers to these questions, and others like them, which is something that is rarely discussed in the Black community, is a part of Dycelia’s monthly workshops, called: Finance 101: Discovering Your Financial Fingerprint. The workshops, Dycelia says, are an opportunity, “to enjoy an evening of fun as we discover your Financial Fingerprint and learn what financial impression has been left on you.” It’s a first steps towards economic empowerment and wealth building. The workshop cost is $10 and seating is limited.
