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
