OUR Featured SPOTLIGHT ON PROFESSIONALS

…a word from our featured professional, Barbara Boustead, Mary’s Daughter LLC

We’re happy to share information about AADMM and the profession of Daily Money Management.  Daily money managers (DMMs) provide personal financial services to a wide variety of clients, including seniors and older adults, people with physical and cognitive challenges, busy professionals, high net worth individuals, small business owners and others.

All active AADMM members have completed criminal background checks and adhere to the AADMM Standard of Practice and Code of Ethics.

In addition to paying bills and managing the day-to-day financial lives of their clients, Daily Money Managers can help financial professionals such as AERIE Preferred Financial Group LLC stay on top of their client’s daily finances for efficient long term planning.

The arrival of Covid19 has caused many changes in the way we do business.  However we continue to serve our clients by providing personal financial services remotely, as well as in-person with precautions in place such as the use of masks, frequent hand washing, and adherence to CDC guidelines.

In addition to Mary’s Daughter LLC which is in its 9th year, it is my pleasure to introduce several DMM businesses in WI who are currently accepting new referrals. They are Barb Irvin, Nimble Numbers Madison, Jamie Stack, Peace of Mind Money Management, Sun Prairie and Attorney Scott Israel, Barrister Money Management of the Greater Milwaukee Area.

Working with AERIE Preferred Financial Group LLC has been such a pleasure over the past several years. Laurie is knowledgeable, compassionate and a wonderful resource for her clients as well as colleagues.

I am excited for this invitation from AERIE Preferred Financial Group LLC to introduce AADMM and my Wisconsin DMM colleagues in this online feature SPOTLIGHT ON PROFESSIONALS. What a great way to build strong financial teams for our clients!
