Ep #66 – What I Learned Managing $2.5 Billion with Mariko Gordon

Mariko Gordon built a $2.5B money management firm from scratch, flying her freak flag high. It had a weird name, a non-Wall Street culture, and a quirky communication Style.

In 1995, when Mariko founded Daruma, only a handful of women of color owned their firms. She had to noodle out how to run a business while daily duking it out with Mr. Market and raising a family.

Today she mentors women who want to start a business, turn their side hustle into their living, better manage their finances, or work through a tricky patch in life or business.

She is also a poet, hypnotist, life coach, hula dancer, and Treasurer on the Board of the Asian American Writers’ Workshop.

In this episode, we talk about the essence of money, what money means and how to take care of yourself so you can be well resourced to have a good life and also fight the systems of patriarchy, racism, and other forms of oppression.
