Nancy D. Butler  

Built business from scratch to $200 million in assets under management while a single parent with no other income

At age 31 while in the process of a divorce Nancy took her 2 daughters and with no child support, alimony or other source of income moved 70 miles away and started her own business. She had never been on her own before and now had herself and two children to support.

At the new location Nancy was offered a salaried position at a higher pay then she had ever had before but realized they were hiring her at "the top of the ladder" leaving no place to grow. She did not want a job. She knew what she needed was a career. So with no other source of income, Nancy opted for her own business. Having two daughters, she felt it important that they "see what a women can do".

Nancy became and remains extremely organized and focused. She got very good at marketing and media relations, enabling her to build the business quickly. She built the business from scratch to one of the top asset management and financial planning practices in the country with the parent company. And as one of the few Certified Divorce Financial Analysts in the State, she has testified in court as an expert witness regarding the financial aspects of divorce.

With approx. $200 million in assets under management and about 1,200 clients, in 2007 Nancy sold her practice. Nancy is now a national speaker and coach to help business owners do a better job for their clients, improve their bottom line and find the work life balance they need. She also speaks on topics to help individuals live a successful life and realize their dreams.

Nancy has been quoted in many local and national publications such as USA Today and Money magazine and has been a speaker for major corporations such as Pfizer, General Dynamics and Dow Chemical. Nancy has also been a guest on several live TV and radio call in shows.

Nancy says "I am a firm believer that adversity can either make you or break you. And if we are strong enough, we get to pick which side we fall on". "My mantra now is, I can't think of anything that could possibly happen to me that I couldn't handle."
