Two years ago on Friday, I launched my first interview in my series on breadwinning, six figure, millionaire women. It was with Chelsea, then from Mama Fish Saves (now Smart Money Mamas). Since then I’ve had the honor of featuring the stories of dozens of women in different careers – from a former police captain, […]
Good morning everyone! Today I’ve got another wonderful story of a successful woman, Tiffany Grinstead from Nationwide. We met at FinCon, and when I told her all about this site and this series, she was excited to participate. And I’m certainly glad she did! She’s a marketing leader at Nationwide, with four kids, and has […]
Welcome to another edition of my fabulous series on amazing money women. Today I’m honored to bring you the story of Kitty, of Bitches Get Riches. Kitty, along with her partner Piggy, run this amazing site that won TWO Plutus awards this year, and I had the honor of meeting both of them at FinCon. […]
Good morning everyone, and welcome to another edition of my award nominated interview series with breadwinning, six figure, millionaire women. I love this series, as I not only get to learn from these amazing women, but I have the honor of sharing their stories with the world. I sincerely hope that they help educate and inspire you as much as they do myself.
Today I’m honored to introduce Echo Huang, a financial planner with CFA charter, certified financial planner (CFP®) and CPA designations. Echo is an amazing woman who came to the US from China with $800 in her pocket, after growing up in a village without running water – and electricity. Today she’s a breadwinning, six figure earning millionaire running her own financial firm. She’s not only the breadwinner of her own family, and a mom, but she also partially supports her parents who recently immigrated to the U.S.
She’s what she calls a “tripple minority” in the financial planning business – female, Asian, and a new immigrant. And when she faced discrimination and challenges in more “traditional” financial planning firms (including being passed over for promotion and being underpaid), she found success by setting out on her own. She’s on the path to financial independence, but doesn’t want to stop working – instead she wants to make a positive difference in people’s lives.
So without further ado, let’s get to know more about Echo.
Good morning and welcome to my award nominated Breadwinning, Six Figure Women series!
Yes, that’s right, I said award nominated. I’m honored that this series has been nominated for a PLUTUS Award (basically THE financial blogging award) for best series. I’m so excited that female breadwinners, and wealthy/high earning women, are receiving this recognition. Of course, all the other nominees are amazing as well! I’m looking forward to FinCon in just a few weeks, where not only will I learn about how to bring better content to YOU, but I’ll also get to go to the award ceremony. Cross your fingers for me!
Today I have an awesome interview with Sunday Brunch Cafe. We’re Twitter friends, and I’m so glad she decided to do this interview. I really enjoyed learning more about her background – even though it includes an infuriating story of being denied a job because she “might want to start a family one day.” You’d think we were beyond these kinds of things, but NOPE! Unfortunately not.
So grab a cup of coffee, sit back and relax, and let’s get to know Sunday Brunch Cafe.
Today I have a different kind of guest post for you – an awesome breadwinning woman from India, my friend Aparna Aggarwal of Elementum Money. She’s a former marketer turned financial planner, and now the sole breadwinner in a country where that’s not exactly common. One of the things I love about the internet, and […]
