About Our Guest
Linda was a principal in one of the first comprehensive wealth management firms in the mid to late 1980’s, long before it became the model of choice that we enjoy today. Although Linda’s industry entry point was in 1981 at a conventional broker dealer, it was her unconventional marketing methods (teaching investment classes, authoring a newspaper column, teaching seminars for women and creating and hosting a financial cable television show) that made her a standout success during a time when women were unlikely financial advisors.

In 1989 Linda brought her advisory acumen directly to financial advisors themselves, and has been helping to shape the direction of the advisory business ever since. Linda served as VP of Professional Development for Merrill Lynch’s Estate Planning Division, as Chief Learning Officer for Securian Financial Services and as Head of Strategic Marketing for Sun Life Financial. In 2007, Linda was recruited by Financial Network Investment Corporation to create and lead its Practice Management initiative, a unique program Linda developed that is often referred to as the “Harvard Business School” for financial advisors.
Linda graduated Summa Cum Laude from Bemidji State University, Bemidji, MN, and was chosen for foreign study at Oxford University, Oxford, England, during her senior year. She and her husband John live in Santa Monica, CA.
