For some of us, there comes a point in our lives when we choose purpose over profit. Janine Firpo, one of the amazing women profiled in my book, "Rethink: Smashing The Myths of Women in Business," has found a way to do both. You can get your copy here. And also take a listen to the podcast I did with Janine in February of this year, it's terrific.
I met Janine through my editor who said, "You should include Janine in your book. She is trying to change the way women manage their money across the globe." By all accounts, she's succeeding. It all started with a four-month backpacking trip through sub-Saharan Africa after quitting her tech job. When she returned, the internet was the new frontier and while she could have jumped aboard and become incredibly wealthy like some of her colleagues, her purpose had changed. Now she is on a mission to change the way women earn, manage and invest their money so that their investments align with what's important to them.
