Dixie Decker has extensive experience with complex real estate transactions, but specializes in the niche called student housing, turning regular single-family homes into multiple paychecks producing double and sometimes triple other rentals! Her expertise is reflected by going from bankrupt to millionaire in less than 3 years, without using her own money or credit, (because she simply didn’t have any when she was forced to start over in her life). Now having over 200 student tenants producing rental income, she continuously leverages her knowledge of wholesaling, lease options, owner financing, and home renovation. She has bought, financed, and over-seen real estate transactions in excess of 26 million dollars and raised over 5 million dollars in private lending through her current business model and now teaches her system to others to help make them successful. Dixie’s success can be attributed in large part to her team-building talents, and her practices and procedures for automating the business (from the buying, selling, renting, down to the marketing and back end bookkeeping), all made simple with cutting edge business systems. Through the hands-on experience of real estate investing in hundreds of deals, she differentiates herself with her customer service and quick response time as […]Read More →

Dr. Deborah Ekstrom was raised in the rural upper midwest where the wind blows 365 days per year (admittedly creating energy production opportunities but also wreaking havoc with your hair), and there are only two seasons…winter and highway construction. The rural area of her birth is a place where neighbors still feel responsible for one another. In addition to the Southern Minnesota prairie lands, she spent part of her formative years in Europe which contributed to the development of her identity as an American and world citizen and as a lover of diverse peoples and cultures. She has always supported the concept of personal realization through a designed life and enjoys knowing others in-depth, and resourcing others toward a successful and significant life journey. While plastic surgery allowed her to assist others in recreating themselves in their next most beautiful iteration, she desired to find a way to create value for others on a greater scale. Personal achievement and wealth building have been major drivers behind her life and led to the development of Money Loves Women—a multimedia platform designed to cut through the noise and chaos of today’s messaging and provide actionable ways for women to design their lives […]Read More →
“I am woman, hear me roar” is Sydney Metzmaker’s motto. If a challenge is presented in front of her, she attacks the challenge instead of shying away. She roars. It all started when she almost quit club soccer at the young age of 10 years old. For club soccer, you had to try out and be selected to make the team. Sydney attended most but not all of the tryouts, choosing to attend the DARE session at school for one of the days. She felt she made the right choice at the time, however, when selections were made and she was not chosen for the A team but rather the B team, she was heartbroken. Her pride was hurt and, at that moment, she realized she really truly wanted to make the A team, but her actions didn’t show her intent. Sydney decided to attend the first practice with the B team and see how she felt afterward. She showed up, looked around at the other players in attendance, and instantly felt frustrated. These players didn’t care about the game like she did is what she concluded. After the first practice, Sydney’s father asked her point-blank if she wanted to […]Read More →

Michelle’s earliest memories from childhood all relate to money. And yet, the stories and lessons learned from different branches of her family tree couldn’t be more dichotomous! Michelle has used the money lessons from her life to rethink how financial advisors and their clients have traditionally worked together. Rather than thinking of her role as a gatekeeper of portfolios, she sees real value in being a gateway to personal financial freedom. To support her clients on their unique wealth journeys, Michelle is a technician of financial planning, investment, and wealth management. But what differentiates Michelle from other financial advisors is that she has spent the last two-plus decades studying the unconventional, non-financial aspects of life satisfaction, financial therapy (it’s a thing), behavioral bias, choice, and decision advising. She believes we all need to examine the money stories, scripts, and lessons that affect our financial psychology so that we can rethink what we know about money to have more of it. Michelle lives in Wyckoff, NJ with her husband, Mike and sons, Alex and Nick. She is an avid photographer – her sons are her favorite subject!
