My Truth, My Story [Black History Month Special]

Back when I was working in the bank, I knew I wanted to become a financial advisor.

People needed more than investments, they need guidance and information, in a way that they can receive it. 

I knew what I wanted to do, I came into the industry to be a financial advisor to help people and to make an impact in their lives! 

Join me in this solo episode, as I share my truth, my story, how I got into the industry, and what exactly I had to go through.

The journey wasn't easy but it was definitely worth it! If you find yourself in a difficult situation right now, be it financially or something to do with your health or whatever that is, I hope my story encourages you to find your resolve.

Keep fighting and keep going, 'cause I am definitely living my dream now!
