Every individual is born with a set of inherent skills and passion for something. Sometimes, it takes years to realize your true potential. You might need some cruel life experiences to unleash your abilities. So would you take adversities as a blessing in disguise? Would you learn from the tough spots in life, or would you rather forget the pain?
For Talaya Scott, her career was shaped after she suffered from the pressures of life. An uber-talented accountant from Milwaukee with great interpersonal skills, Talaya is a successful entrepreneur. She founded FIIT Perspective, which is a financial literacy education company, after she realized how important it is for young adults to learn these skills. Ironically, financial literacy is not something that is taught at schools.
“I started FIIT Perspective because I know how it feels to be considered a statistic in society and written off with little to no expectations to come from me. As a single and black mother of 3 girls, I struggled with financial management. I didn’t come from a family of financially literate individuals, and it showed with the decisions I made. I suffered all kinds of financial losses. I experienced the loss of cars and homes. I lived years from check to check, and I also went through bankruptcy. Unfortunately, I lived like this for a little over a decade.”
Talaya learned from her experiences with poor money management and decided to pursue a master’s in accounting. She describes it as a life-altering experience as it opened new doors of opportunities for her and helped her realize everything she had been doing wrong in life.
Today, she is a full-time accounting instructor at Milwaukee Area Technical College. Alongside teaching, she enjoys coaching and changing people’s perspectives on finances. Talaya does not shy away from influencing minds in every way possible. She is regularly invited to events across the state to speak on financial management. She also has a large following on Instagram and Facebook, who believes in her views on financial freedom.
Talaya’s money masterclass is a life-changing experience for people struggling with controlling their finances. From creating a financial plan to aiding its implementation, the course offers complete mastery over money. Talaya shares her goal and says, “I am deeply passionate about financial literacy education, and I’m dedicated to shifting people’s perspectives on their finances one person at a time.
It is true that sometimes you get lost in your bad habits and require a change of perspective from a professional. Talaya Scott is a source of inspiration for all those lost in the mismanagement of finances and lacking financial freedom in life. She is working tirelessly to help you realize your God-gifted talent, and all it takes is a change of perspective.
