Darrah Brustein’s Mom and Dad are evidently awesome
Take a look at this link, and focus on the book Finance whizKids.
It’s probably great for Emma Jo, my eleven year old emerging media mogul. And, not too late for Haley Anne my sixteen year old “old soul”. I’ve met some adults in business that are raving about this book as parents.
I’ve only met Darrah twice. And, both times I was left thinking I want her to mentor my own daughters in some fashion. Darrah is a genuine entrepreneur with a proven track record. That would certainly catch my attention. However, Darrah is also humble and possessed of a servants heart. Her flair for relevant networking is better described as “connecting” and I believe founded on a keen desire to genuinely help people. So, I’ll add though leader to the attributes I admire about the future Majority Speaker (that was my idea after meeting with her Wednesday).
About the author:
“Darrah Brustein was born and raised on an historic horsefarm outside of Philadelphia.
In her youth, she was given many chores and an allowance. But it wasn’t until her family moved south to Baltimore when she was eleven that her financial education truly began. There, she was taught the indelible lessons of saving, earning, investing, and giving back.
Upon high school graduation, Darrah was ready for her independence; she moved to Atlanta, Georgia, to attend Emory University. She studied Religion and Italian and graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 2006. After college, Darrah wanted to pursue a passion, so she took a job as a sales rep for a high-end fashion line. Excited to combine her love of clothing and sales, she successfully hit her three-year sales goal in ten months.
During this time, Darrah bought a car and a home, all because she was able to institute the lessons she’d been taught as a child about financial responsibility. When she realized she was the exception, not the norm, Darrah decided to do something about it.
When Darrah’s not working to spread financial education, she and her twin brother, Garrett, own a merchant services business, Equitable Payments, helping businesses find the best provider for their credit card processing needs.
Darrah also owns and runs Atlanta Under 40, a social and professional networking organization.
When not working, Darrah is the President of the Emory Young Alumni association, hoping to give back to the school that gave her her start! She is also amongst the founding class of the Atlanta chapter of the Forum of Global Shapers, a hub of the World Economic Forum. Subsequently, she’s been invited to attend the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland to represent the topic of financial literacy for children.”
Let’s join Darrah and be part of the Solution.
