We had the good fortune of connecting with Heidi Harris and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Heidi, do you have a budget?
I am very financially confident. This includes being budget minded and having a solid financial plan that I can rely on. I feel strongly that having knowledge in your own financial plan to the best way to start growing your wealth and really be able to see where all those years of professional experience have taken you. To me this includes being properly covered for life and disability insurance – not the “fun and exciting” thing that others can see, but the things that will allow you to take calculated risks to grow your business.

Please tell us more about your work. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
What I have learned most from over 18+ years of experience is that it is wonderful to be talented at what you do, but being business minded is a skill set that you have to have in order to thrive. I am continually shocked when referring jobs to others in my industry who will not reply to emails in a timely manner / won’t return a call, etc. You will go far if you have great communication, show up when you say you will, and follow through.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Based on my previous Q and A I’d love to give a shout out to Allison Vasquez, my financial planner with Northwestern Mutual. She has the knowledge to give me security with my finances in both the personal and business sectors.
