As the founder and CEO of a money management firm that manages over $100 million in assets, Elle Kaplan knows a thing or two about risk. She also has an intuitive understanding of how you can use money to grow more money. She even joked with Marie Claire about the first time she watched Mary Poppins, and how she was confused at financial strategy for feeding the birds.
She said, “The children want their tuppence to feed the birds. But I thought they should have left their tuppence in a bank earning interest. They could have bought a ton more birdseed that way.”
Her best advice about becoming a business success is specifically geared towards women. She believes they should learn everything they can about their finances and how to invest. And, they should change their perspective on what it means to save money.
She said, “I don’t want women looking for spare change or not buying the latte. I want them thinking like moguls and investing. It’s not about clipping coupons, it’s not a mentality of deprivation, it’s redefining luxury. And the only way you get an investment account is by starting.”
Her own money savvy combined with her incredible work ethic helped her become the business success she is today. She even launched an inspiring lifestyle brand called Love the Hustle to help like-minded women find, educate, and support each other.
