One Piece of Advice
“ Happiness and success are found when you follow your heart and intuition.”
Why I Became a Wealth Planner
Wen’s interest in personal finance has always led her to ask questions about how short-term choices can lead to positive long-term outcomes. This interest only deepened as she started her first real job post-graduation and found herself bearing greater personal financial responsibilities. As she continued to educate herself on the subject, she grew more passionate about utilizing and sharing the knowledge she learned to help others. After gaining two valuable years of experience in public accounting, Wen decided to make a career pivot to financial planning and joined the Cadent team in October 2020.
