Welcome to Blanco Innovation Group

In Leading with Vision, Paul Blanco shares specific strategies that enabled him to grow a nine-person office to an award-winning firm with more than 300 advisors in 30 offices across five states. He also shares scenarios that didn’t work out so you can learn from his hard-earned wisdom without making those costly mistakes yourself.

Paul believes vision drives success and serves as the foundation of leadership. As soon as you reach your vision, you must define a new vision to strive for. Paul’s current vision is for Barnum Financial Group to be a $250 million firm.
