Jania Stout: How She Found Entrepreneurial Success … Even in a Recession!
Today I’m excited to introduce you to Jania Stout, managing director of Fiduciary Plan Advisors at HighTower. Jania’s been in the retirement plan business for 20 years, beginning on the provider side. Eventually, she made the move to the advisory sector, as she felt a natural calling to be on the same side of the table with clients, helping them achieve financial security.
Although going out on her own to work in the advisory business was scary—especially during the 2008 financial crisis—Jania said it was the best decision to grow professionally. And her hard work in the industry hasn’t gone unnoticed—last year, Jania won NAPA’s 401(k) Advisor Leadership Award. In a world where women make up only 19 percent of senior level positions in financial services and 2 percent of CEO roles, Jania is a true inspiration for women wanting to pursue their passion and succeed at it!
