    Akeiva is a financial planner by profession, and at just 24 years old, she’s a bit of a unicorn in the financial planning world. In her 9-5, she provides financial advising to ultra high net worth families.

    After Quinn graduated college, she had no idea what to do next. So like most people, she took the first job she could get. 
    Day in and day out, she worked long and hard. Like a hamster on a wheel, she ultimately pushed herself to the point of burn out. She began to feel ambivalent about life and her future. She knew something needed to change.

    Today, Quinn is the founder of Create Your Purpose®, a movement and community that empowers female founders to create more purpose + profit in their businesses *without* burning out. Quinn never planned on becoming an entrepreneur, but now, she can’t imagine doing anything else. She's sharing her full journey on this episode of Creator Stories.
