In Conversation With Women
"At its heart, INTERMIX has always been about community, a place where women can connect over a mutual love of fashion. Now, more than ever, it is time to expand upon that notion of community as we carve out a dedicated space to amplify important female voices and to empower each other through shared experience.   Each week, we are connecting with women making a meaningful contribution to the lives of those around them on a monthly topic we both feel is important and worth discussing. More than anything, we envision this as a platform for women to tell their stories and a space where we can listen and learn from them.   We’ve dedicated September to CONFIDENCE because believing in yourself is the necessary spark before everything that follows. The women you’ll meet were chosen for their ability to offer hope, to lend knowledge, to inspire action—and so much more."
Haley Sacks If equities, interest rates and Roth IRAs have you entirely confused, you're not alone. Enter Haley Sacks, the 27-year-old "financial popstar" (her words) who, via her @mrsdowjones social media persona, is making it easy—and fun—to become financially literate. Here, she discusses how she's empowering women around money and more on this month's subject, CONFIDENCE.                                                                                                                                                                             Growing up were you always confident? I came out of the womb 5’10, maybe 5’11 and with a personality just as big. All I wanted was to be the same as everyone else and to fit in. As I got older, I realized that what made me different was my biggest asset.
"What was launching your own business like?  I did not start Mrs. Dow Jones with a lot of confidence. I had no business experience, I had no financial experience…it was just an inkling, a gut feeling. I certainly had a lot of self doubt but I think that’s why I worked so hard and still work so hard. I’m always trying to prove myself.                                                                                                                                                    Why is it so important for women to take control of their finances? It’s so daunting to begin, but once you start it’s the most empowering thing."
