    Sima Alefi, founder of Serenity Financial Planning

    Sima Alefi, founder of Serenity Financial Planning

    Sima is the founder of Serenity Financial Planning and our chief wealth management advisor. She’s been serving clients in the financial industry for nearly three decades. During that time, she’s handled a wide variety of assets and portfolios of all sizes, giving her the breadth and depth of knowledge needed to serve high-net-worth clients in all stages of their financial journeys.
    As a woman in the financial industry, Sima is passionate about serving other women and educating them on the importance of financial independence and long-term planning. She learned the importance of financial literacy at a young age, when she watched her beloved grandmother suffer unnecessarily from a lack of financial preparation and understanding. Her grandmother spent many years living a lavish lifestyle, complete with maids and a personal chef, while Sima’s grandfather took care of all the finances. She relied on him completely for financial support and stability. Her life changed in an instant when Sima’s grandfather died of a heart attack, leaving no will, living trust, or bank accounts. Although left with nothing, Sima’s grandmother was determined not to be a burden on her children. As a 40-year-old widow, she made the decision to start her own catering business and worked hard to provide for herself and learn how to manage her finances for the first time.
    Over the years, Sima has heard many other stories similar to her grandmother’s—including a close family member experiencing divorce after a 40-year marriage and having to go back to work to earn a paycheck, right on the cusp of entering retirement. As a young girl, it became Sima’s mission to help women become financially equipped and empowered so unexpected life circumstances such as these would not find them unprepared. She made the decision to be someone they could turn to, who listened to their concerns and went the extra mile to help them find solutions, all so that they could experience confidence instead of worry. She specializes in working with women and those in or near retirement, with a focus on retirement taxes and income planning.

This Podcast is so inspirational

As a new entrepreneur, it’s a little scary to “lean out” from what you know and what’s safe. If you let it, it can also be a little isolating. What I love about this podcast and the community Felena has created is it helps you realize that you’re not alone and just how much the challenges you face others can relate too. Felena is a great and caring host. And the stories on this podcast are so inspirational. It’s also really cool getting to hear about so many unique businesses out there.

Love the show!

Felena does a superb job interviewing a variety of business owners about how they started their business and how their life path led them to the present day. I love how guests come from a variety of industries and share their background and experiences.

Felena asks great questions

What I love about this show is that Felena takes each guest back to the beginning of their career (and even childhood). It's refreshing and validating to hear everyone's nonlinear career path. Plus, Selena introduces so many interesting and impact-driven women entrepreneurs.
