Ep 96: Learning to Let Go of the Outcome with Kathy Longo
More About This Episode:
The common spot business owners always point to when asked about challenges is letting go and learning to delegate. It’s extremely difficult to turn responsibility over to someone who might not have the same level of knowledge or passion over the business, but it’s critical to growth and balance.
Today’s guest has learned that lesson and focusing every day on doing her best regardless of outcome. Kathy Longo is a Certified Financial Planner® practitioner, Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy®, and a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst with over twenty-five years of wealth management experience. She started Flourish Wealth Management eight years ago but her career goes back to college where she majored in financial planning at Purdue University.
Our conversation today will focus on her ability to build a successful business while having so much on her plate: children, home life, publishing, and podcasting.
