Our Story

We live in a ferociously demanding world, self- deprecation became my biggest weakness. I went through an emotional journey after my divorce. I was fearful of the unknown, rebuilding my finances and credit seemed impossible. I resolved to create a better way, I took control of my financial health, and committed to start a business with a goal to change people’s lives for the better. Today, HoneyBee empowers hundreds of HR leaders to provide their employees with tools to bridge financial emergencies and manage credit effectively. I’ve always believed that with a little empathy, everyone wins. I am grateful to the employers and our partners that support our mission and continues to advocate for us.

Bee Kind,

This Mission Is Important To Us

For too long we’ve failed as a society to take care of our most vulnerable. It seems that the more financially desperate a person is, the more difficult it is to receive any form of financial relief. Our goal is to level that playing field and help people get their head above water again so they can take first steps towards a more financially secure future.

Financial wellness is a big part of the mental and emotional health of working adults. Money problems lead to stress, negative feelings, and distraction that affects employee productivity in the workplace. HoneyBee helps millions of working Americans deal with financial emergencies, chart a path out of high interest debt, and improve their financial health by delivering socially responsible and ethical lending solutions. It is a privilege to be a part of this socially impactful company!

Rebuilding wealth when you’re older and after a major financial implosion is difficult. Putting back the pieces of your shattered finances at 50 after the Great Recession of 2008 is next to impossible. Working folks need better tools that help structure a way out of living paycheck to paycheck — my generation more so as we feel left behind by the dazzle of the new tech age and having to play catch up after that Great Depression. HoneyBee’s mission to add to those tools holds the promise of alleviating millions still trying to get their financial house in order.
