Now, she’s sharing her advice on paving your path forward. TRG (1022-2DFM)
Today, Stasia Washington is recognized as one of the “Most Influential Wealth Managers” by Los Angeles Business Journal. Her story began in retail banking, but her determined mindset and dream to be someone people trust with their financial futures drove her to make the leap to independence. When she joined an existing Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm in West Hollywood, she got the freedom to put her clients first, always. And with support from Schwab Advisor Services, her firm has built an extremely-successful practice that spans across the country.
“It goes back to relationships. I really missed working with clients. I’m in the business of solving problems, and I missed being a go-to person.”
