Kayla Clark-Member Highlights

Kayla Clark
The Principal Group

1) How long have you been in business?  I have been in the financial services since July, 1998.

2) How did you get into your business? Prior to this career, I had a business called Design Communications.  My degree is in Journalism and Publication Design.  I wrote and designed newsletters and print media for a number of different industries.  I had a friend who suggested I take a mail order course in trading commodities, so I did, and became intrigued with the way money works in and is handled by society.  I started calling everybody in the Yellow Pages, Dean Witter, Merrill Lynch, and would just talk to and question anyone who picked up the phone about the business.    Eventually I had an appointment and was given a profiling exam to see if I was a good candidate, which I was.  I tested for and got my first Securities License, Series 7.  Soon after, I got my Health and Life Insurance License, followed by an Investment Advisor license and Principals License.  I have studied continuously and will soon have my CFP, ChFC and CLU designations.  I love learning and this continuous study has allowed me to navigate complex financial and tax planning situations which arise in the synergy of personal and business finances, as a company grows and matures through the business cycle.

In The SHARP Solution, participants will learn the critical components of brain health that provide a foundation for improved cognitive functioning throughout the lifespan, understand the power of mental and physical training to stimulate energy, and create an actionable plan for implementing a sustainable brain fitness program that can be applied to their everyday life.  These simple strategies optimize energy and performance for today and create a healthier brain as we age, prolonging the development of cognitive decline, dementia, and Alzheimer's disease.  Participants will:

  • Understand the impact of busyness, stress, and aging on brain functioning
  • Identify the 5 key factors for building a healthy brain foundation
  • Utilize brain training techniques for mental strength, flexibility, and endurance
  • Discuss the latest tools designed to optimize brain/body functioning
  • Create a training plan for improved brain health and cognitive fitness

Heidi Hanna is an experienced speaker who has been featured at many national and global conferences, including the Fortune Magazine Most Powerful Women in Business Summit, ESPN Women's Leadership Summit, and the Million Dollar Round Table.  Heidi is CEO and founder of SYNERGY, an integrative neuroscience partnership that provides brain-based training for individuals and organizations.  Heidi's publications include the NY Times bestseller The SHARP Solution: A Brain-Based Approach for Optimal Performance (Wiley, Feb 2013), and the follow-up release Stressaholic: 5 Steps to Transform Your Relationship With Stress (Wiley, Jan 2014).  Her next book, Recharge: Investment Strategies for Your Most Valuable Resource will be available early 2015.
