From feeling stuck at a day job to $500K/year with Brittney Castro of Financially Wise, Inc. (FTF 5.7)

After feeling stuck at her corporate finance job, Brittney Castro broke out on her own to start her own financial planning firm. Now she works tirelessly on growing her personal brand making $500K/year.

On our show, we tell the real stories. And that means more than just the How To’s of people who’ve scaled their businesses to be much bigger than themselves.

What’s different about today’s story is this…

Our guest didn’t branch off from her day job per say. She didn’t dabble in something else on the side, while working her day job. In this case, she decided to break off from the corporate world and do the same work for herself – with her own brand and her own team. And she did it all in a tough, cut-throat industry; financial services.

This is the story of Brittney Castro, founder of Financially Wise, Inc.
