Welcome to episode 56 of The Innovating Advice Show.
I’m joined by Dasarte Yarnway, Founder and Managing Director of Berknell Financial Group which he started at age 24 and which quickly became one of the most notable millennial-led financial services organizations in the U.S.
A true thought leader, entrepreneur and inspiration for this generation, Dasarte shares the powerful story behind his Onward to Greatness brand and discusses how he’s structured Berknell with three distinct client groups to serve clients at every stage, including traditionally overlooked and underserved people.
We chat about the three books he’s written, his podcast, weekly blog and how he’s working towards quadrupling the number of households that Berknell serves.
May we all follow Dasarte’s lead and keep being human and moving onward to greatness.
