Empathy is underrated in today’s demanding world. We’re often too busy with our Instagram accounts to reflect the lives we *wish* we led to be present in the one we’re living now, one where compassion for the people around us is in short supply.
My life after divorce wasn’t a pretty picture. I struggled mightily — my self esteem took a big hit, as did my finances and credit. But going through all that made me see how important it is to feel in control of your financial life, and it made me want to help others take control of theirs.
Today, my partners and I are doing just that with HoneyBee.
HoneyBee empowers hundreds of HR leaders to provide their employees with the tools to help cover their bills, expenses and financial emergencies without relying on high interest credit cards, payday loans or raiding their retirement savings. It’s a compassionate solution offered by caring employers who want to see their employees thrive without the distraction of financial distress.
I wish a solution like this had been available when I was in the depths of financial distress, and it’s a source of great pride to me now to be part of a solution that so many have come to rely on to improve their financial health. Because I’ve been there, too.
