Mayumi receives her greatest inspiration from her late grandfather, David Jones. Her grandfather and his siblings created a “Family Bank.” After 42 annual family reunions and hundreds of family beneficiaries of the “Family Bank” vision, the Jones family gave new meaning to the concept of “Keeping up with the Joneses.” The Jones family legacy has given Mayumi profound understanding of what a small few can accomplish when they work together.

In the 1940s, when Mayumi’s great-grandmother (David’s mother) was ill, David and his siblings pooled their money to help cover her health care costs. When she recovered, they continued pooling money, borrowed from that pool to buy homes, and repaid borrowings plus interest back to the “Family Bank.”

The Jones siblings then created an educational scholarship fund, and a “Family Bank” that other family members could borrow from. Collectively, seven working siblings: a bus driver, bookkeeper, school teacher, homemaker, and soldiers, created wealth by working together.

A “Family Bank” can bring families together to create wealth collectively, empower family leadership, and pass on a legacy to future generations. This is done by shifting control of wealth creation back to the powerful family unit, by giving every family access to create self-sufficient communities, using simple, proven strategies of the wealthy and affluent.


Mayumi learned from her mother, who only achieved a sixth grade education, that boundaries only exist within one’s mind. Her mother instilled in her the power and opportunities of lifelong learning and the fundamental belief that she could achieve anything she set her mind to. Unwilling to accept the social and economic limitations of her family and community, she went on to graduate from Syracuse University, and to form several companies.

Mayumi’s proudest accomplishment is teaching financial literacy to children. Through her company, Inspire Learning, Ltd, Mayumi has spent the past decade developing programs that inspire children, entrepreneurs and families to be financially aware and accountable.

Mayumi is committed to educating young people and underserved communities and has provided youth programs, mentoring and leadership for over a decade. She has delivered her custom financial education curriculum for kids, which she has voluntarily delivered to multiple youth organizations and thousands of children throughout California, including High Tech High school, the National Council of Negro Women’s symposium for girls, and the youth of Bay Area Community Resources (BACR).

Mayumi has also been an Advisor for California Jump$tart Coalition, a financial literacy advocacy group for kids. She believes that young people deserve to learn today what most adults learned the hard way.
