You have your budget in place, a cash cushion built and a retirement fund set up -- now what?

In this episode of Financially Wise Women, Entrepreneur Network partner Brittney Castro discusses what should be your next steps. It starts with figuring out what you're most interested in, she says.

Take a portion of your money -- no more than 5 percent of your portfolio, she advises -- and invest in something you're interested in, such as startups, real estate or perhaps a couple of individual stocks. These investments can be risky though, so always talk to a financial planner, Castro warns.

Watch the video to find out where you should invest your money next.
