MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

Margaret Floy Washburn was the first woman to earn a doctoral degree in American Psychology in 1894. During that time, women who were married could not teach, so Margaret never got married and served as a professor for 36 years at Vassar College (that’ll teach em.)

Inez Beverly Prosser was the first African American woman to receive her doctoral degree in Psychology in 1933. Her dissertation consisted of research surrounding self-esteem and personality variables between segregated and integrated African American students. Her conclusion at the time was controversial because her research found that Black students were more successful around black classmates and black teachers than compared to those at integrated schools. She taught at a segregated school in Texas for over 18 years.

MARCH HEALTH AWARENESS

We all have to start somewhere, why not here! Let’s have a healthy March. 🍎🍐🥬🥒🥕🥩🍗

SHE BUDGET$ TIPS

This month let’s talk about investing. Investing in ourselves is so important to our growth. Whether it’s a new business, existing business, real estate, school, stocks, it’s all a way to help us move forward financially.

The first step is establishing your financial goals, what are you trying to achieve. Then what type of return do you plan on getting from your investment. The return may not always be financial. An investment in a good ad could gain you more followers, which ultimately down the line will gain more sales. Quality investments are the key.

Remember that investing is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. You could spend $200,000 on a building for your business. That return will not be seen the first month of your business. It may take years to see it, but the key is it made your business more profitable.

There’s so many get rich quick schemes. Those aren’t investments. Never invest in anything you don’t fully understand! If you would like to invest in stocks to generate income, talk to an expert, study it, learn it! That’s with anything you do. If your name is on it, be sure you have the full story.

How will you start your investment journey this month?
