What does D.M. stand for?

on October 30, 2014

As of September, D.M. Wealth Management, Inc. has been open for eleven years!  It’s been an amazing, fun, frustrating, awe-inspiring ride.  The best thing about D.M. Wealth is the clients–I’m so fortunate to have a wonderful group of people I advise.  However, they ask one question repeatedly:  What does D.M. stand for?  Is it my initials backwards (Doviak, Margaret).  Is it a strange version of my name and my husband’s nickname (Dick and Margaret)?

Today, the answer is revealed.  No, it’s no version of my name.  When I was about twenty, I opened a literary consulting firm where I typed, edited, proofread, and provided any and all literary services for authors and professors.  (Remember, in my last life I was an English teacher.)  I called it Dream Makers Literary Consultants.  I believed that helping someone with their writing helped them realize their dreams.

Over fifteen years later, when I wanted to open a financial planning firm, I was drawn to the name Dream Makers again because I believe that good writing skills are important, but good money skills can be life changing.  However, at age 37, I realized Dream Makers just might sound like an escort service!  I was also entering the world of E.F. Hutton and J.P. Morgan.  So Dream Makers became D.M.  And that’s the rest of the story…..

Be Prosperous!  Peggy
