Keina Newell is and always will be a teacher. From grade school children to the teachers, and parents, Keina has a passion for working with others and supporting them as they meet their goals.
You can find Keina’s current work at www.wealthovernow.com – where you can pick up money tips from her blog or book a call and speak with her.
But like Doc, if you question why a Financial Coach is on a podcast about educational equity, let’s look at the facts. Teaching is not a well-paid profession. Keina offers our academic heroes the lessons, wisdom, and guidance with their money now to build wealth for the future.
“I would say the majority of teachers out there have some portion of that mentality that “teaching is a calling, it’s about the kids” but at the end of the day, it is detrimental to a teacher’s emotional and financial health, if you’re getting paid with warm fuzzies…”
In the episode, Keina encourages us all to build our team of money conscious people. It doesn’t have to be awkward and you don’t have to share all of your personal information but you should initiate healthy dialogue surrounding money, as soon as you can. Actionable steps include:
- Find a financial advisor.
- Ask clarifying questions around your benefits at work; know your plan covers and what your limits are.
- Build yourself a financial road map for your future and next generation.
You don’t have to walk the road to financial freedom alone. With educated professionals like Keina Newell, why would you want to?
Make sure you tune into Season 1 Episode 11 for a financial pep-talk and a glimpse into the kind of support and knowledge Keina can offer you now, that will set you up for success in the future.
