I look back at all my hurdles and I’ve learned so much from them. I know I wouldn’t be who I am today without them. -Suzanne Crociati
Suzanne Crociati was in college when her parents divorced. This kind of thing happens all the time, but for Suzanne, it was a rude awakening about how vulnerable a woman can be when her marriage ends and she doesn’t have a handle on her finances. Suzanne never forgot how hard her mother’s life became. Today she is the founder of the Women’s Initiative Team, an all-female group of experts including Suzanne as the financial advisor with team members in the fields of real estate, accounting, healthcare, law, plus a licensed marriage and family therapist. The goal is simple: to offer guidance and support to women when they need it the most.

We have to speak what we want. If you want success in life, you’ve gotta walk the walk and talk the talk until you get there. -Raven Blair Glover
It’s always my goal to introduce you to a woman who will inspire you, and in this episode, we hit the jackpot. Why? Because Raven Blair Glover’s success story didn’t ignite until she was 55 years old, and everyday since then, she’s been on fire! Raven is the founder of the Raven International Broadcast Empire which includes podcasts, radio shows, TV, consulting services, a development deal with Roku, and an agency where podcasters can learn how to monetize their content. It’s hard to believe that the same woman who created this empire used to make ten dollars an hour, working part time. Back then, she thought she wasn’t good enough, that she had no voice and wasn’t deserving of success. But like so many other success stories, Raven’s life got turned upside down when a crisis rocked her family and instead of throwing her hands up in surrender, she decided to “step, show up and grow up” to make her dreams come true while taking care of those she loved. If you are over 50 and you think that your days of dreaming are over, hit that download button, because Raven has a few things to tell you! #storybehindhersuccess #tvshowhost
Sometimes the long way around is the short way around. I’m not somebody who takes short cuts.
If you could use a strong, smart, savvy and young role model in the financial world, this episode is for you. Meet Francesca Federico, co-founder of Twelve Points Wealth Management www.twelvepointswealth.com where she helps families, individuals and especially women make smart financial decisions. “Money is emotional” says Francesca, and in this interview, she offers her thoughts and advice about how to empower yourself by protecting your financial future. But that’s not all this story is about. Francesca has an unstoppable work ethic, instilled in her by her half Irish, half Italian family heritage. She cherishes the powerful life lessons she learned from her immigrant grandparents and credits them for teaching her what it takes to be a true success story. In the words of her paternal grandfather, Palmiero Federico: “It doesn’t really matter what people think of you. You have to make them feel something about you. #thestorybehindhersuccess #money #inspiringstories
