EPISODE 22 – LIBBY WILDMAN – ON MAKING PEOPLE FEEL COMFORTABLE, ACCEPTIING WHO YOU ARE AND KNOWING YOUR MONEY STORY
Today we are talking with Libby Wildman, Head of Wealth Advisory at Davis Rea, Founder of the Collective, and Creator of Liminal Escapes.
Libby founded her own Wealth Management company over 30 years ago and has been working in the financial world to help people achieve their goal of financial freedom faster. For many years she found herself being the only female in the boardroom and decided to form The Collective to bring women together, give them a place and allow them to do business on their own terms. She has also just launched Liminal Escapes to bring people together who have a desire to explore themselves on a deeper level. Liminal Escapes offer retreats for small groups of adventurers to come together for a unique experience in a magical place with experts that will provide them with a transformational experience. This is perfect for people that crave community, adventures in nature and self-discovery.
Libby loves helping people and is a natural connector. That is at her core. She is always asking how she can help and is more than willing to support people in their endeavors. If Libby can help you, she will and if she can’t just connect you to another person that can help you.
One of the things I appreciate about Libby is her willingness to share and to connect the right people together. She is warm, welcoming and goes above and beyond to create meaningful events and is an exceptional example of a female who goes above and beyond to create opportunities for women in the entrepreneurial space.
Every time I speak with Libby, I always walk away feeling refreshed with two or three new resources to review or people to connect with.
