SAN DIEGO—A mentor will tell it like it is, good and bad, while a sponsor will sing your praises to those who matter, Carla Harris, vice chairman of wealth management, managing director and senior slient advisor at Morgan Stanley, told attendees at an mPower women’s networking event during MBA CREF/Multifamily here last week. With 30 years of experience on Wall Street, Harris presented “Maximize Your Success,” offering “Carla’s pearls” of wisdom, as well as actionable advice about identifying and owning your own power, being your authentic self, being unapologetic about your accomplishment and taking risks.
