What Drives our CEO

Some people seem to know what they want from an early age. Others take a less direct path.

What did I want to be when I grew up? The question hardly ever hit my radar. Not as a kid. Not as a college student. Not as an early job seeker. Just never.

I’m simply not wired that way. In place of “future thought” though, I’ve had a fascination for understanding the world as it was presenting itself to me in the moment. We’re not talking about intelligence here. More like engagement. I always felt like my wiring was a bit different. That caused difficulties, yet was a gift as well.

What Detroit Poverty Really Looks Like – My Story

My name is Achsha Jones, I’m a thirty-eight-year-old “Xennial” (Gen X/Millennial cusp), native and current Detroiter. This is #MyRenaFiStory. I have two daughters, twelve and six, and a fifteen-year-old stepson. In the last decade, I’ve filed for bankruptcy and divorce, remarried, had another child, changed careers twice, purchased a home and went broke. Telling the story of how my upbringing and experiences of almost four decades have brought me to my present state is complicated and lengthy so I’ll give you the Readers’ Digest version.

Growing up in 80s Detroit, I saw a lot; the city was heavily segregated and losing thousands of residents every year. There was an annual tradition of massive arson lasting up to a week that would begin on “Devil’s Night”, the night before Halloween where hundreds of buildings were set ablaze.

From Stolen Credit to an 831 Credit Score – My Story

Hi! I’m Kat.  I work for Rena-Fi, Inc. I’ve been here since its inception.  I actually filed all the corporate paperwork, so you could say I’ve been here since before the beginning.

I may have some fancy titles, but I’m really and truly just a regular middle-class American gal. I’ve been through some financial hardships and that’s what I’m bringing to the table today in order to relate to you, not about my job, but my struggle with money.
