On today's show we are speaking with Sallie Krawcheck; Business Leader at 85 Broads. Referred to as 'The Last Honest Analyst' by Fortune Magazine, she is known for turning around and growing troubled wealth management businesses to eliminating Wall Street conflicts of interest and advocating a true client-centered business model. After years spent as the guardian of such brands as Smith Barney, Merrill Lynch and US Trust, 2011 became the year for the next stretch of her professional life. Since then Sallie has invested in 85 Broads, a 35,000-strong global professional woman's network. She also spends her time advising start-up companies, focusing on education-oriented philanthropy, serving on a variety of boards and most recently this year was named one of Fast Company's 100 Most Creative People. Tune in to the show and listen to her full story, including the risks she took at all stages of her career and what drives her entrepreneurial spirit.
