Making the Financial Industry More Inclusive with Lazetta Braxton

It’s incredibly hard to get into the financial industry. But what is more difficult is staying in it.

To make the financial industry more inclusive, and serve more people of color and provide them with the financial services that they need, I’m bringing in another incredible guest who has done awesome stuff for the industry and for the people of color community!

Join me in this episode as I interview the “Financial Planner for the Rest of Us”, Lazetta Rainey Braxton, MBA, CFP! She is wealth manager & investment advisor, entrepreneur, speaker, writer, and the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of 2050 Wealth Partners, a virtual financial planning and wealth management firm with a mission to provide access to financial planning for “the rest of us.” 

Lazetta believes that solid financial advice is not just for the 1%. Her work involves elevating people of color, specifically the black community.

We’re going to talk about the underrepresentation of black advisors and how it affects black families. We also touch on the topic of diversity, equity and inclusion, and how we can create an environment where people feel included. And help minorities build wealth!
