From CNN to Entrepreneurial Success with Tony Conte
What if Anderson Cooper looked you in the eye and asked “What do you really want to do with your life?” And what if you did not have an answer? That happened to the guest on this episode of Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do. He spent several years as a producer at CNN working with anchors like Connie Chung, Paula Zahn, and Anderson Cooper. Then one day he left it all to join the family business as a financial planner.
Anthony M. Conte, MSFS, CFP® is the chief executive officer of The Independent Grid?a turn-key business platform dedicated to helping financial advisors gain independence without having to go at it alone. He is also Managing Partner at Conte Wealth Advisors, an independent financial services firm. Anthony left his job at CNN, where he was a lead producer and writer for four years, to pursue a path of entrepreneurship and leadership. When he created The Independent Grid, he had the vision of helping other financial advisors tap into the independent market and be entrepreneurs themselves.
