Ms. Katy Riney is another founding member of the WNG and she makes anyone in her presence feel like they have family. As a transplant to Utah, being around Katy feels like home. Not only is she a wizz as a wine connoisseur, she excels at wealth management! Her financial consultations as well as her wealth seminars are always free, so there is no excuse not to meet for coffee or a glass of wine!

Share something about yourself that can’t be found on your resume.

I am intrigued by the night sky and nature landscapes. I wish to fly to the Moon!

Who is/has been your role model/mentor? And what is one key thing they taught you?

My mother, she taught me to always be who I want to be & to go after what I want, but in the journey,  always be kind/respectful & to help others.

If you could travel anywhere in the world – money is not an issue – where would you go and why?

France, it’s my home and to be able to tour the wine country again!

What is a motto or phrase you live and/or work by?

At the end of Life, what really matters is not what we bought, but what we built: not what we got, but what we shared; not our competence, but our character: and not our success, but our significance. Live a life that matters. Live a life of Love!

Who is your must-listen-to or must-read author, blog or video blog? How do they inspire, motivate, encourage and/or help you?

– Terry McMillian- I love how she writes about what breaks her heart and what she doesn’t understand. And there’s always something that she wishes she could change, which I can relate too. Her whole background resonates to me.

Men can starve from a lack of self-realization as much as they can from lack of bread. ~ Richard Wright

I grew up reading his books and following his works, as I wanted to be a controversial author at a young age, fighting for all the prejudicial causes, which has inspired me to stand up for my rights as a human being.

Any last words to share with UTWNG members and future members

Always be the best version of you, & be in the moment.

Knowledge is only as good as the action it inspires. Don’t waste it.
