Play • 28 min

This week on the podcast I talk with entrepreneur, mentor, advisor, and CEO of World Financial Group (WFG) Fradel Barber. Fradel is a visionary within the industry and a true advocate for women in the financial services industry. We discuss Fradel’s unexpected path into financial services, how motherhood has improved her experience as a leader, and how her firm has reached a 50/50 ratio of men to women advisors – a true accomplishment in an industry primarily composed of men.


In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Reasons fewer women than men pursue careers as financial advisors
  • Career potential for women within the industry
  • How women’s perspective and communication style can be helpful as a financial advisor
  • How motherhood can help in your career, even if you’ve taken a career break
