Amazing energy, guests and information

Just discovered this podcast and I LOVE it! I combed the internet for CFPs who are women and/or of color, esp. in my area, and came up short. So this podcast opens up a whole new world for me as a recent college graduate pursuing a CFP career. After doing some research on the cfp board, I learned there’s still a small percentage of people of color with this designation, and I like the emphasis this podcast puts on the contributions to the field from diverse individuals. Representation matters. The insight of the guests is truly a gift and a roadmap - a blazed trail in every sense of the term.
I read a previous review made here that asserted this podcast was SJW nonsense. Be aware of what you’re looking for from this podcast. If you’re into diversity, allyship, and solutions, you’ll thoroughly enjoy this!
Love Rianka and all her content! She brings a refreshing point of view and is inspiring.
