This week Ivy Slater, host of Her Success Story, chats with her guest, Esther Kuznetz. The two talk about her mission in providing women a financial education, how she has fought to serve us as a demographic, and the joy that her life and work brings.
In this episode, we discuss:
How she made her way into the financial industry by accident
What transitions took her from a secretarial role to financial management to starting her own firm
Why and how she has always fought to serve women, even when it felt impossible
How she built her client base, and what she did to network when starting out
Why the demographic of women should be held in high regard
Esther’s vision for the future of her company
Her thoughts, tips, and advice for other women leaders who are thinking of taking bold steps forward
Esther Kuznetz started in the financial industry as a secretary on Wall Street in the 1980’s. She moved to Sarasota in 1991 and joined a small independent firm, where she was reintroduced to the financial industry and truly found her calling. After 13 years at that firm, it was time to go out on her own and work with clients her way. Esther joined a larger firm in 2008, but after 6 years, Esther decided that being an independent advisor was more her style and started STARFinancial Solutions.
Esther can be seen twice a month on The Suncoast View, where she educates viewers on investing, financial planning and other related topics.
Esther has a passion for working with, and empowering women by helping them take control of their financial future so they can focus on what really matters and have confidence regarding their finances and retirement income.
