The Stronger Wallet site is designed to share financial information in a way that is practical, meaningful and helps you gain control over your finances.
Learning to manage your money (instead of it managing you) takes focus and effort, and it is so worth the time and energy.
Personal finance is personal. We all have different goals and aspirations.
Whatever your financial goals may be, making wise decisions with and about money is key.
Handling money with purpose and intention is the foundation for establishing financial stability and ultimately building wealth.
I created this site after finding myself in frequent conversations with colleagues, family, and friends about money matters and financial planning. Real conversations about financial choices and decisions we all face. My hope is to use this space to continue these kinds of conversations here.
Welcome! My name is Lesley Pearson. I am a Certified Public Accountant with a Masters in Business Administration and the creator of Stronger Wallet. Personal finance is near and dear to me. Most of us find ourselves launched into “adulthood” without much of a grasp of how to manage money, which can lead to learning money lessons the hard way. Mistakes have been my best [most annoying] teacher. My hope is that sharing lessons learned along the way might prevent others from repeating my mistakes.
I love small business and the entrepreneurial spirit. I am a podcast junkie, number cruncher, personal finance enthusiast, book worm, aspiring hobby farmer and chaser of toddlers.
