March is Women’s History Month, and I can’t help but reflect on the woman who has inspired me the most over the years, my mother. One of my favorite quotes comes from an iconic historical figure, Maya Angelou. “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” When reflecting on Women’s History Month, this quote serves as a guiding light for me personally. As I reflect on my childhood, I remember how my mom made me feel. Unfortunately for me, I wish I didn’t forget what she sometimes said. (Momma certainly does know best!) I can

hopped off the school bus. What I genuinely remember most is the comfort she provided. As a parent, I think it can be tough to wonder if you’re doing a good job. Perhaps we wish we would have been a little more encouraging or in the present more often. However, to me it all comes back to how someone makes you feel. Mom, you are a wonderful mother, and I cannot thank you enough for the endless sacrifices you’ve made for me! My mom is undoubtedly a person who puts other people first. I love that about her, and it is something I try to bring to the Patriot Wealth family. She is very friendly and loves to meet new people! I think sometimes

recall numerous instances throughout my childhood where her love for me was on full display. Her nurturing ways came naturally to her. It could be a home-cooked meal she prepared before a game (I can assure you I never went to play anything on an empty stomach) or the calming words of encouragement before a big test. I also loved seeing her smiling face when I eagerly

the financial industry tends to reduce everything to numbers. It is important to me that I always remember this business is so much more than numbers. My mom and Maya Angelou understood the power of human connection. It will forever serve as a wonderful reminder to me as I continue my journey with Patriot Wealth!
