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

Hi Lacrisha, what’s the most important thing you’ve done for your children?
As a parent i think one of the most important things ive done that has made an impact is teaching my son to never give up on your dreams and leading by example. My Mission as a parent has always been to teach him the life skills, i wasnt taught while we grow and learn together. I believe children need to be taught mindset, self-discpline, commitment, character, integrity. Every Football , Basketball game from age 6 until now 17 i show up as his biggest cheer leader. Children need to feel a level of confidence going out into the world full of critics & judgement. All while learning for themselves that hard work pays off and never to quit the things they love to do. Setting the bar high can be tricky but necessary, Having such a strong Faith base, it helps me with a growing teenagers that has to learn from life. I’m pretty confident in how i raised him, he knows prayer, be a leader, control your mindset, money strategies. Its no right or wrong formula, im enjoying the ride to him finding purpose with love & happiness !

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I help Minority Woman Dominate In Mindset & Money. No, it was not easy getting here. I started 4 years ago teaching woman how to build wealth with life insurance. I quickly learned the need in my community. Woman were looking for safe space to get resources & grow. Without being judged for what they look like or where they come from. I push through the wall some woman have up to not letting new information in. Just being me, being transparent, openly sharing my money story & comfortably letting them, hey im just like you !

along the way i learned that finding purpose in life important. I learned that our past & toxic environments can have us living in a box our whole lives. Then when something new come about, we cant let it in or open up because we are stuck in comfort zone which leaves no room for growth. Woman are more likely to adapt to someone that can relate to them & looks like them.

Faith Family Finance LLC Will be a Financial Resources Hub located in Charlotte, NC. we will hold Financial Consultations, Financial Workshops, Mental Health Workshops, at the facility to help more Minorirty Woman in Mindset & Money !
