Ep 9: Doing the Work with Lazetta Rainey Braxton

We would like to welcome today’s guest, Lazetta Rainey Braxton, MBA, CFP®. She is passionate about amplifying diversity, inclusion, equality, and belonging in the financial planning profession, and does so through financial planning, public speaking, consulting, and coaching.

In this episode, Lazetta shares how an encounter with a racist client impacted her and led her to keep #doingthework. We discuss how our shared faith has impacted us as businesswomen and has freed us from the gatekeeping that holds so many women back. We strive to build each other up and encourage you to join with the strong women you have come across to move each other closer to success.

Here is what you will learn in today’s episode:

  • Here is the inspiration behind the hashtag Lazetta adopted, #doingthework. (7:10)
  • Why she became passionate about helping people like her parents become financially free. (10:00)
