About Cady North, CFP®, MBA
I’m the founder of North Financial — a boutique financial planning firm that specializes in helping women dream big and get their personal finances on track. A lot of my clients aren’t entrepreneurs yet, but they want to be or at least know they don’t want to work at the same desk job forever.
To give your dream the best chance of success, your personal finances need to be in order. However, with your busy personal and professional life, you probably don’t have time to wade through mountains of news and information to figure out what to do about your budget, investing, or retirement planning. This is where I can help.
My mission is to provide effective and affordable financial planning tools to women who desire to be their best self — financially, professionally, and personally. I help women dream bigger in all these areas so they can live out their greater purpose.
My parents were small business owners, and I learned to balance a business checkbook by the age of 13. I definitely have the entrepreneurship bug in me, but it’s taken me a while to get here. I spent more than a decade advising high-level executives of Fortune 500 companies while working for industry giants such as Bloomberg and Financial Executives International. I then took the leap to start my own business helping women and entrepreneurs plan for their futures. I have offices in both Washington D.C. and San Diego, and I work via virtual screen sharing and video conference so we can work together no matter where you live.
One of the reasons I love working for myself is I can plan my own schedule and give back time to causes I appreciate. Financial literacy is one of those causes for me and I like to get involved by providing free financial planning workshops to local organizations.

Believe it or not, the best investment isn't the one with the highest returns. It's the one you can stick with. Yet, there’s so much misinformation out there. So let's dig into the details and avoid these major investing pitfalls.
Too many business owners operate their businesses in a reactive way. They allow others to control their schedule and time. They don’t think strategically about building cash buffers and paying themselves a fair salary. They also tend to pour available cash back into the business without adequately evaluating whether their business is sustainable and if additional investment will result in sustainable growth. Instead -- you should be considering ways you can use your business to grow your overall wealth. Here are some ideas.
With many businesses asking employees to return to the office this fall (if they haven't already) lots of us are asking the question -- can I continue working from home? If you've hit a dead end with your employer over negotiating return-to-work policies perhaps you're one of the millions thinking about quitting as part of the so-called "Great Resignation." I wanted to put together a checklist of things to think about in your budget so you can determine whether you can afford it.
