– Louis Barajas.”

Louis Barajas defies the traditional concept of financial and business expert. Louis connects with people through their hearts, their dreams, and the often-difficult realities of their lives. He’s not just about numbers. Rather than fixating on the size of the client’s bank balance, investment portfolio, or retirement account, his approach has always been to show people how to use their resources to live better lives today, tomorrow, and in the future. His humanity-based financial and business advice works well for people making $25,000, $250,000, or Millions, because most everyone has a deep desire to want to make a difference in their lives.

Louis is the author of 5 books: Small Business Big Life for Women – 7 Secrets for Designing A Business to Help You Live Your Best Life; My Street Money – A Street-Level View of Managing Your Money From the Heart to the Bank; The Latino Journey to Financial Greatness – 10 Steps to Creating Wealth and Happiness for You and Your Family; Small Business – Big Life; and Overworked Overwhelmed and Underpaid.

Money Magazine also named Louis as one of America’s Top Advisors. He was also chosen by People en Español as a person making a difference in the lives of Americans.
