Impactful business leaders in Q3!
Every quarter I always find ways to expand my growth and scale my skill level. In the midst of growth and networking, I tend to come across entrepreneurs that inspire me to step up my game and also some that I find to be creative, driven, and authentic. Each quarter seems to get better and accelerates my passion to serve others and share the fruitful value that others offer. These are just a few of the entrepreneurs that have had an impact on me.
Alexa Von Tobel
The author of the New York Times Bestseller, Financially Fearless and the CEO and Founder of LearnVest, Alexa Von Tobel is a powerhouse in the world of finance. It is her tenacity to uphold commitment, consistency for excellence, and fearless yet strategic moves that continue to set her apart from the run of the mill “finance guru”.

Her passion to provide access to quality planners and experts offers a golden opportunity for many to obtain financial freedom and growth. For those who need a pick up in the area of fiances, take time to read Financially Fearless. It is a great place to start and plant a seed for future growth.
