Greenville, Ohio February 22, 2019. Desteni Mason was the featured speaker at the Greenville Business and Professional Women’s Club (BPW) meeting on February 14th. The meeting was held at the Brethren Retirement Community and hosted by the Public Relations Committee consisting of Chair Susan Fowble and members Peggy Foutz, Annette Sanders, Melissa Barhorst and Sue Huston.

Committee Member Sue Huston introduced Desteni Mason who is following her life-long passion of helping people ‘be better and do more than they thought they could ever do’. She co-founded KTL Performance Mortgage with John and Kristina Heath in Greenville in 2003. She completed her undergraduate studies at Urbana University, achieving dual Bachelor’s degrees in Business Management and Human Service Leadership. She also earned her Master’s Degree in Business from Bluffton University while growing her company to one of the top achievers in Ohio and Indiana. In 2015 and 2018 she was named one of Mortgage Professional America Magazines ‘Elite Women in Mortgage’. In 2016 Desteni was awarded the honor of being named one of Mortgage Professional America Magazines ’42 Young Guns’.

Mason opened her talk on the story of her life and struggles of her childhood and being a child of divorced parents with no plan. Her father instilled a strong work ethic. She believes everyone should have a financial and personal plan. She and her husband (prior to marriage) made a five year plan. Their power is their plan! They are married and revise the plan every year. They are debt free and celebrate their successes. She now is helping other women with her Rise Above on-line program. Mason reiterated from her presentation: It’s your life. It’s your Money and it’s all in your control. It doesn’t matter what your life looks like now! With the right planning and the right mindset…You can Rise Above anything. A free tool ‘The Money Manifesto’ is part of the Rise Above program.
