Nobody banishes Sallie Krawcheck.

Bank of America's (BAC) former head of wealth management has been keeping busy — and visible — since her ouster last fall.

On Wednesday Krawcheck officially joined the advisory board of Gold Bullion International, a precious metals provider for investors.

"It's by no means a call on the direction of gold, by any means. (Honestly, I have no idea.)," she said in an e-mail to American Banker. "But it is expressing a point of view on investment diversification and providing that, particularly to individuals. Most individuals are significantly underweight [in] 'alternatives' writ large."

And she's evaluating other next steps carefully, she told Marie Claire in a recent interview.

"I've had discussions with and offers from a number of different organizations. But I really am taking this time to think through very carefully my next steps — which could also include more entrepreneurial ventures," Krawcheck said in a Q&A in the magazine.

Her pursuits are diverse. Consistently ranked as one of Wall Street's most powerful women, she told Marie Claire she's taken up yoga, despite being "a very, very anti-yoga person."

And she's built a small Twitter empire with almost 2,400 followers in just a couple of months.

Business Insider on Wednesday named her to their best tweeters in finance list — no doubt for her sharp tone and candid observations.

Some crowd favorites from Tuesday include her take on recommended jobs from networking site LinkedIn: "Insult 2 injury @linkedin 'Jobs u may b interested in' keeps suggesting I apply to be a Merrill trainee — seriously."

And her view of the Marie Claire write-up: "Me in @marieclaire: how many ways can they say I was let go — ousted, taking the fall…"

"I apologize — I missed 2 in @marieclaire — 'let go' & 'dismissed', towards the bottom of the article," she tweeted a few minutes later.
