How do you know if you'll be financially ok in your life? Do you have a financial game plan? Do you know your numbers? If you're like me... reviewing my financial statements and coming up with a sound investment strategy is as exciting as going to the dentist and finding out I need a root canal.  

MONEY and FINANCES scare the crap out of me! 

Until I met my financial guru, Tama Smith.

Tama is the Head of Women Living a Richer Life at Brighton Jones, in Seattle, WA. Her story is poignantly beautiful. She started out a highly driven undergrad at Berkeley, launched her own company serving as its CEO, and as the business model started to reveal significant cracks, Tama received that dreaded phone call ...

Just as Tama was heading into a deep valley of professional despair because of her company's broken business model, Tama's beloved sister who lived in LA with her teen-age son, and was the primary caretaker of their aging parents, was diagnosed with malignant cancer. Tama rushed to her sister's aid and within a matter of weeks, her sister passed. In that instant, Tama's life was forever changed. 

Tama's story unfolds in this episode of Purpose Lounge and with it the teachings that only an MBA Wharton grad and the former CEO of the Tyra Banks Company, can so eloquently and passionately deliver.
