Episode 206: Owning Your Situation

Lisa Werner of Marketplace Financial Group, LLC

“Some of it is just owning your situation, right? Okay, I wanted to get all this stuff done, but I can't. That doesn't mean I'm a failure. That just means that's what happened today. What can I do to fix it? So instead of it letting it beat you down, just accept it and give yourself grace.” – Lisa Werner

About Lisa Werner

After working a corporate job right out of college, Lisa Werner moved careers to the financial services industry in 2004 to gain more control over her work life. What she found was a life purpose. After nine years with a major insurance company, Lisa had the opportunity to go independent with Cambridge by joining up with Karl Wunderlich at Marketplace Financial Group, LLC in Neenah, Wisconsin in 2013. The move has allowed Lisa to customize how she works with clients, offering them only the services that they need instead of products they don’t. Lisa and Karl offer customized financial planning for their small business and individual clients. From budgets to estate planning, Karl and Lisa coach their clients to make the best decisions they can despite what their lives are throwing at them.
