Lisa Kearney’s Fun Frank Advice for Self-Made Millionaires & Wealthy Families:

 

  • It’s all about supporting women and really encouraging them. It’s about recruiting, retraining, and more importantly, retaining them because once women get in this industry, we need to be able to empower them and support them while they’re here - otherwise, they’re going to exit.
