As a mother of two, author Nancy Phillips is keenly aware of the importance of teaching children financial skills early on before bad habits can occur. With this in mind, she created the Zela Wela Kids™ book series, for parents to teach their children these essential life skills. Nancy published The Zela Wela Kids Build a Bank in 2010 to teach children how to manage their money. Nancy has an Honors Bachelor of Science from the University of Guelph and an Executive Master of Business Administration degree from Queens University, Canada. She has twenty years of business experience in medical sales, international marketing, and new product development. Nancy was a national award- winning sales representative for Bayer Pharmaceuticals in Canada and went on to successfully manage a $40 million international orthopedic product line while working in San Diego. The birth of her first child in 2002 dramatically changed Nancy’s life and some of her primary goals. After becoming a mother, she had a new focus—teaching her children the skills they would need to thrive in our rapidly changing world. Just before her eldest turned five, she began searching for a book series that would teach her children important lessons about personal finance and goal setting. Although many of the books she read had excellent information, it was generally directed towards adults not children. This led to the creation of The Zela Wela Kids™. Nancy’s mission is to help create a financially literate society by providing children and young adults with valuable and enjoyable resources that encourage a basic understanding of personal finance and the process of goal achievement. She hopes that by talking about these important subjects, parents and children alike will be inspired to develop responsible financial habits that will increase their quality of life and enable them to achieve their true potential.
