Back Office Betties's Profile Photo

Our CEO and Founding Bettie, Emily LaRusch has felt the entrepreneurial bug since she was a child. She got her start in elementary school when she directed the neighborhood kids in a talent show and charged parents admission to watch their kids perform. As an adult she worked for fortune 500 companies and loved sharing ideas and executing process improvements and product development as an intrapreneur.

While working on a IT project in the finance sector she spent most of her days on project calls but needed to arrange services of a carpet cleaner and landscaper for her home. On a rare break, she called multiple companies and no one answered. She called company after company until she was able to book services. One company called her back later and they said “Hey, I have a missed call from you. Do you want carpet cleaning?” Initially she was annoyed by the impersonal and unprofessional experience but after a few days a light bulb went off. This was the perfect opportunity to marry her passion for service, love of small businesses and knack for IT to become the voice of small businesses across the US and Canada! In October 2013, she put the idea onto paper as she formed a business plan and the rest is history.

I hold many hats as most women do! By day, an Account Manager for an International Technology Company, by night a dance teacher and also a wife and mother to two amazing boys. I am a dancer and an artist.  As I was introduced to Mom’s Making Six Figures, I found a way to supplement an additional income so that I could start paying off our debt. When you don’t have any debt, you have options. Options lead to freeing up my time, while still having an income that won’t change our lifestyle. Hopefully it will improve it! I am ready to start slowing down and really enjoying my life and my family. The day to day struggles of juggling a high stress career and trying to balance that with family have left me gasping for air at times. Moms Making Six Figures has really opened my eyes to a calm that I didn’t know could exist!

Pensacola Business Radio-05.13.16-Top CEO Series Ep -Sponsored By American Heritage Financial

Host- Sandra McGuire / AHF

Since our inception, AHF has been totally focused on building a strategic, quality insurance and financial planning firm.

American Heritage Financial was founded and based around two ideas. First, create a company that would be a career opportunity for Financial Professionals by having quality insurance companies and products available for their clients. Secondly, we work for our clients not the insurance companies. We base our decisions for products off of the conversations we have with each individual client we represent. We believe there is not a “one size fits all” with insurance products. You have to look at each client’s situation as a whole and base your financial strategy consistent with the client’s way of thinking, not your own.

AHF focuses on creating a financial strategy to get you to your retirement or through it without the worry of unexpected bills, running out of retirement income, or becoming a burden to your heirs. Our Financial Professionals are thoroughly trained in all aspects associated with retirement preparation. We have several Certified Financial Planners available to help create a retirement strategy specific to you and your goals. We look forward to working with you soon.
