Rita P. Mitchell: FACES of Nashville

Rita P. Mitchell featured in StyleBlueprint as one of the FACES of Nashville.

“From her success in the financial sector to her independent entrepreneurship, Rita P. Mitchell has collected anecdotes and nuggets of wisdom that she’s doling out in her empowering book, Own Your Phenomenal Self: A Guide on Character, Success, and Leadership. Through it, the founder of Mitchell Financial Inc. and retired Executive Vice President and Manager of Private Client Services for Middle Tennessee at First Tennessee Bank (now First Horizon) teaches us how to excel in leadership and maintain confidence in the workplace, even in the face of corporate politics. Living her own phenomenal life, she’s using her “retirement” to find joy and encourage the rest of us to do the same — particularly in the corporate environment. Please welcome our newest FACE of Nashville: Rita P. Mitchell.”
