“As a child, Carolyn Leonard, the CEO of DyMynd (pronounced “Diamond”) a financial empowerment consultancy that caters to women, and the first woman to trade in the OEX pit at the CBOE, had her first job helping her grandfather fix toilets and leaky faucets in the apartment buildings the family owned. She earned between 50 cents and $1 a day, and her mother helped her open up a savings account and deposit the money there.
Leonard made some mistakes early on, such as not putting her own name on the title or mortgage to the house she and her husband bought.
