My name is Janet Tyler Johnson. I am a Certified Financial Planner® professional, an author, speaker, and the founder and President of JATAJ Wealth Management. I am also a recovering Corporate Hostage.
In 2005, I left my prestigious corporate job as the head of the financial planning and investment management division of the 12th largest CPA firm in the U.S. to start my own firm.
I was very successful by any measure in corporate America. I had spent 10 years in the CPA world, and prior to that spent 15 years working in other financial services firms. But I am very entrepreneurial at heart so it was well past time for me to escape the confines of corporate America and start my own business.
By the time I started my firm in 2005 I had 25 years in the financial services industry. I took those decades of learning and wisdom and put them to use building a client-focused, high-service, high-tech firm that I’m proud to say is very successful.
Also, during the course of my career, I have served as President and Chair of the Southcentral Wisconsin Financial Planning Association, and have been a speaker at national industry conferences as well as for AARP, the Missouri Society of CPAs, and numerous additional organizations.
In addition to running JATAJ Wealth Management, I am the author of the book, Finding Financial Fulfillment for a Life Filled With Money and Meaning.
I am also the owner of a complimentary business by the name of Corporate Hostage, No More! where I offer coaching/mentoring services, energy healing sessions (I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Metaphysics), and run a membership site. Through this business I host a weekly podcast show, also named Corporate Hostage, No More! which is available on the website and at iTunes and Stitcher Radio.
Even after decades in this industry, I am more passionate about my work than I have ever been and have no plans for retirement. I mean, why would I want to stop doing something I enjoy so much that brings so much meaning to my life?
I also mentor young advisors pro-bono through the Financial Planning Association as they begin their careers and build businesses of their own. I find this work very rewarding.
But my work is not all consuming. I also enjoy hobbies that include singing and playing the piano, knitting, reading, jewelry making, traveling and dining out.
My husband and I relocated from Wisconsin to the beautiful Land of Enchantment (New Mexico) in 2015 and are living the life of our dreams. It would be my honor to help you do the same.
