This is an interactive and fun gathering where women can talk about their natural strengths as women and how those strengths apply to managing money and investing. Catherine, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER ™ will facilitate the discussion.

She’ll also offer tips, including how to find the right relationship with a investment adviser. Someone you feel comfortable with. Someone you trust.

It’s a great way to learn from others and share the benefits of your own experience. As one guest put it, “it’s networking with a financial focus”.

You’ve spent a lifetime using your strengths as a woman to make smart decisions about life. Isn’t it time to apply those same strengths to making financial decisions and investing?

If you’ve been struggling with not knowing what to do or where to start when it comes to investing and managing your finances then you should join us for this workshop because, among other things, it reveals:


You don’t have to manage money like your dad or your husband to do it well.


Money is not meant to be feared, create anxiety or meant to become a chore.


Managing your money is more than just investing in stocks and bonds.
