Work Hard, Play Hard & Pay It Forward with Judy Singleton By Stephan C Abrams

January 10, 2019

 

J Singleton Financial would like to share with you an interview Judy had the pleasure of doing with Stephan Abrams for The Jackson Hole Connection, a podcast created and inspired by the many stories of the wildly interesting folks connected to Jackson Hole.

Below is a brief description of Judy’s interview with Stephan.

“In this week’s episode of the Jackson Hole Connection, Stephan visits Judy Singleton. Judy is a entrepreneur, financial planner, world traveler, and a former Yellowstone Parkie. Judy started visiting Jackson Hole on family road trips in the 50s. At the advice of her sister, Judy’s first solo experience out in Wyoming was working a summer in Yellowstone at the Snow Lodge in 1971. In 1984 after opening a successful candy and nut shop in Alabama, Judy decided to take her business up to Teton Village.

Stephan and Judy talk about ambition, hitch hiking, being a Parkie, opening a business, traveling by train, surviving in Jackson Hole, learning new skills, and what motivated Judy to become a financial planner.”

 

‘Tis the Season to be Giving

 

December 21, 2018

 

With the holiday season in full swing J Singleton Financial wanted to spread some holiday cheer to the residents and families at Jackson’s local nonprofit, Community Safety Network. CSN supports lasting change in the lives of those affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

We asked the residents to compile a list of their Christmas wishes and we checked it twice! The JSF team spent one afternoon wrapping the presents with some of us learning to wrap for the first time. Another afternoon was spent as Santa’s elves delivering everything to Andy Cavallaro and the rest of the CSN staff.

The JSF Team is so grateful to be given the opportunity to collaborate with everyone at Community Safety Network and will cherish this memory. We hope we were able to brighten the holiday season for those currently residing at CSN the way they were able to brighten ours!

 

Sincerely,

The JSF Team

J SINGLETON FINANCIAL and Teton Literacy Center

Early on in my career one of my mentors pressed upon me the importance of giving back. That advice has continued to pay dividends throughout my 24+ year financial career. The joy and fulfillment received in helping others remains one of my fundamental drivers. Furthermore, this giving back mentality is also shared with our partner – Raymond James Financial. Each year Raymond James dedicates the month of August to giving back and challenges all of its employees and partners to participate. Challenge accepted!

This month the JSF team volunteered at Teton Literacy Center. Hopefully you already know about this wonderful organization providing after school enrichment clubs, summer camps, tutoring, and family literacy programming – all at zero cost to their clients. I have listed their website below if you want to find out more about how they continue to make Jackson Hole a better place.

Last Thursday afternoon our office purchased the entire back to school supply list for all of TLC’s summer camp students. We set up a store of the supplies and then passed them out to the excited students. Seeing the children’s enthusiasm for learning was by far my favorite take away. Organizing events like this take a great deal of work and I would like to personally thank Laura Soltau – Executive Director, Kristin Livingstone – Associate Director, and the entire Teton Literacy Staff for helping make the afternoon possible.

 

 

Sincerely,

Judy

Mother’s Day is a time to take a moment and show appreciation to some of the most important people in the world – our Moms.  We celebrated a few wonderful mothers by hosting a brunch at The Club at 3 Creek  on Mother’s Day this year.  Thank you to all of the other mothers out there doing the million things that assure that this world is filled with love.  – Judy
