Three Generations in Banking
Watching Over Your Wealth
I was pleased to speak with Kim Shores, Private Wealth Advisor with Wells Fargo's Private Bank. Kim has been in the banking industry for 30 years. "I started on the East Coast in the '90s working for NationsBank, which then became Bank of America. I worked there for 15 years and helped build out their private lending platform." A new concept at the time, Kim was part of a team that created the predecessor to what exists today in most major banks.

Stress and Weight Loss
By Stephanie Lee
Often, when we consider Stress Management, our first thought is to completely eliminate stress in our lives. However, the truth of the matter is we need a certain degree of stress to achieve many goals. Yes, I know it’s hard to imagine that stress can be a good thing. Don’t you just wish it didn’t exist at all? Well, following are a few examples of where stress can be a benefit to us.
Working out or exercising stresses our body which helps us grow physically by getting stronger and more flexible muscles.
Earthquakes and Wildfires and Snakes.
By Judith A. Habert
When the decision was made for our family to relocate to San Diego there were many of our New York family and friends who were aghast at the idea. “Why would you move there, you will die in an Earthquake.” First off let me say that New Yorkers are excitable creatures by nature, so this very dismal response to a statement we made was not unexpected. Of course, there were a few who were more positive. Their response was, “Wow, that is awesome, I hear that San Diego is absolutely beautiful, but hopefully you will not die in an earthquake.”

Carly Castillon is an amazing artist who knew from the time she was a young girl that she wanted to be an artist. It wasn't only a desire but an obvious choice. "My parents were always very supportive of my career choice. When I was in first grade, my teacher told my parents that they needed to get me into art classes because I was the only child in class who drew the classroom in perspective. All the other kids were just drawing a flat desk. I had three-dimensional and vanishing points."
Why Women Need to Focus More on Their Retirement
By Leigh Singleton
According to a recent data survey conducted by digital banking platform, Monifi, 85% of men are actively saving a portion of their income, while only 77% of women are currently able to put away the same portion of finances. Leigh Singleton, Director of Financial Education, shares her top three tips for ensuring women are budgeting, saving, and preparing their finances to keep up with their male counterparts!
When most little girls are eight years of age, their main interests are sleepovers and Barbie dolls; this was not the case for Stasia Krahling. Growing up with a legacy of banking professionals in her family, Stasia's interest was deep-seated in the financial industry as the third generation of bankers, "My Grandfather, Father, and Mother were all in the financial industry and worked for Wells Fargo, so it was almost a natural progression for me to work for this organization that had been such a great part of my family for generations."
After Christmas festivities and Valentine’s romance, it’s time for atonement. That atonement, according to the Catholic Church, is Lent, a 40-day period of fasting, abstinence, and repentance, leading up to Easter. As a sign of sacrifice, devotion, and personal strength, millions of people worldwide give up something. However, before the hardships, foregone pleasures, and sacrifices begin, many countries celebrate with music, food, alcohol, and fun. This celebration is called Carnival, Carnaval, or Mardi Gras.
