S1 EP104: Leaving Corporate America to Pursue Your Passion with Maria Brito

February 16, 2022



It's not uncommon to stare blankly at the screen of your computer at work and wonder how you got there. You might have gotten that job through an employment agency or you might have been employed by that company since your graduation. 

It's likely that you settled down because it was convenient, stable, and offered some decent benefits, no matter what the circumstances are.


Sadly, that level of comfort and security can cause us to neglect our past plans and passions. 


If you’re certain that you dream of pursuing a different career path and leave Corporate America for good, then it’s time to take a huge leap of faith and pursue your passion. Whether that be a business or a different career field altogether, trust your gut and chase your dreams.


That is what Maria Brito did, and now she’s a CEO, an award-winning New York-based contemporary art advisor, author, and curator who has been featured in Complex Magazine as one of the 20 Power Players in the Art World she was named by ARTNEWS as one of the visionaries who gets to shape the art world. 


Join us as Maria shares her experience as a lawyer and eventually leaving and pursuing her passion for art, how she overcame tough moments in building her business, and how NFTs are used for art. With hosts, wealth manager Lee Michael Murphy, career advisor Sergio Patterson, and attorney Matthew McElroy tune in to this week’s episode of The Free Retiree Show.
