Cover Story: One Financially Savvy Sista

It was a fast paced day when Adriene Hobdy and I sat down to chat.  It had been a day of  going down memory lane of past P3 Pearls who had graced our cover; acknowledging 2008 as a year of incredible women and 2009 following suit. In fact I was so caught up in the celebration, I even started out my interview with Adriene with “welcome to the October 2008 issue”….Forgive me but we’re still celebrating with a bang!!!

Adriene is a powerful woman on a mission to educate and inspire young African American Women to be financially savvy. I can see why she would be the ambassador for giving women tools for being a financially savvy sista.

Adriene shared her vision for women and  candidly talked about the challenges of today’s woman during the recent economic changes. The spiral of one’s actions or lack thereof can put anyone of us in a financial rollercoaster if we’re not sure of how to devise and implement a plan.  Adriene dispels the myths about money management and offers her pillars of success. Some very simple actions can lead to a world of financial freedom with the discipline and commitment to a vision. Adriene reveals those simple actions with me during our power filled chat.

You’ll find Adriene to be a gentle-spoken woman on purpose. She reveals her best advice for women searching for vision, steps to bring power to your life financially and two of her favorite quotes. I’d say, grab a pen and note pad, a hot cup of your favorite drink and take good notes as she and I delve into the world of the financially savvy sista. Adriene is definitely a P3 Pearl that the world is awaiting. Enjoy!
