Have you ever taken a look at the financial education space and noticed a lack of diversity among those educators and the traditional wealth services they provide?
My guest today is Dana Miranda. Dana is an entrepreneur and a certified educator in personal finance (CEPF). She founded Dana Media to diversify voices in personal financial media.
