About Our Money Stories: Have you ever thought about how your personal history, ancestry, and environment affect your money habits? People rarely connect their personal history with their health, wealth, relationships, and career. But what if we could create a holistic view of our money? A Financial Wellness Plan. Eugenie George is a financial wellness specialist and educator who attributes her success in personal finance to creating an unorthodox way of viewing money.
