Nina Mitchell's professional focus these days stands in stark contrast to when she first started out.

Several decades ago, after leaving her job as an auditor at an accounting firm because she found the work too impersonal, Ms. Mitchell joined a sports management firm. She was the only female financial adviser working with professional male athletes.

"It was a very male-dominated industry," Ms. Mitchell said. "Now I'm working with a lot of talented women. It's nice to have that collaboration around me."

She continues to serve those early clients as a principal with The Colony Group and co-president of Colony Sports & Entertainment, and two years ago, she launched an initiative in the firm called Her Wealth.

Through her outreach, which includes a website, radio show and educational workshops, she seeks to provide women with the resources and confidence to successfully manage their money.

"We're trying to empower women to take control of their financial lives and do it in a way that isn't scary," Ms. Mitchell said.
