After reaching an executive position at a prominent accounting and consulting firm, Louis Barajas felt he needed to give back to the community that required his advice most. As a financial planner in the heavily Latino neighborhood of East Los Angeles, Barajas began to share with other Latinos what could be done with their own resources. A highly sought -- after speaker for local, regional and national business conferences, he has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, Hispanic Business, on NPR and CNBC, and was recently named one of the 100 best financial planners in America by Mutual Funds magazine.
