Who Is Dow Jones And How Rich is Helen Sacks?
Who Is Dow Jones: Nicknames can be dangerous, especially in the finance industry. Even if your goal is humorous, “Mrs. Dow Jones” is one of the riskiest targets you could ever choose.
However, Haley Sacks is well aware of the connotations of her nickname. Sacks coined the moniker as part of her mission to demystify money; as a pleasant byproduct, she became wealthy as a result of her efforts. As of the year 2022, Mrs. Dow Jones is expected to have amassed a fortune of $2 million.
Her experience is remarkable, and it provides a great entry point into the world of “influencers,” particularly financial influencers who have been criticized in the past for advising investors to take unnecessary risks.
Dow Jones Early Years
In spite of the fact that Sacks’ father was a Wall Street worker, she has always had an interest in the entertainment industry, making her current career path a natural fit. Unlikely to be the beginning of a successful career in finance, she attended Wesleyan University in New England and majored in cinema studies.
In 2017, though, when her actual story begins, Sacks is looking for personal financial counsel that speaks to her, and, unsurprisingly, she comes up empty. Social media swiftly crowned her “Mrs. Dow Jones,” a name she coined, as the reigning monarch of financial-themed memes and gifs.
The Full-On Finance Shift
On the other hand, Sacks was looking for much more. She did this by releasing the website financeiscool.com. She calls herself a financial pop star, and her website sells a course for $150 that teaches individuals how to save money, increase their wealth, and invest intelligently.
Sacks’ motivations and objectives are admirable, but she may have unwittingly entered a financial minefield by creating the site. Even while she’s her own person, she’s nonetheless following in the footsteps of someone like Keith Gil (aka “Roaring Kitty”), whose GameStop short squeeze nearly bankrupted a $12.5 billion hedge fund.
Sacks have taken a lot of criticism from established financial professionals, but she is making an effort to improve her own knowledge by earning a certification as a financial advisor. Several business partnerships have been established, she claims, including with Wealthfront, Mastercard, and Public.com.
She can be subtle at times, but then again, Sacks once said she wanted to be the “Cardi B” of finance merchandise, so she can also be a bit too much at the wrong moments.
To provide her audience with what she calls “actionable, safe financial advise,” she employs the platforms she has worked with to do so.
Despite the potential dangers inherent in the terms themselves, Sacks insists she will remain “authentic to herself” and her brand no matter how much money her partners offer.
Dow Jones Net Worth
She has achieved great success in her career goals of increasing her self-assurance and expanding her fan base. Fortune’s 40 under 40 lists in 2020 included her, while InStyle’s Badass 50 list from the previous year included her as well.
To further expand her fanbase, she has published a book titled The Money Book and is offering merchandise such as crop tops, notebooks, and caps for purchase.
As of now, she is more of an entertainer than a financial guru, but her $2 million in assets and proximity to New York City make her a pretty solid financial prospect.
Dow Jones Personal Life
You’ll get nothing if you try to learn anything about Sacks’ love life or personal life. There is now no sign of her major squeeze, and she appears to be completely immersed in her main gig. Its possible things may change given her fame, but for the time being Sacks is content with her privacy.
