She Means Business! Women's Financial Literacy

For this past series of She Means Business, our financial workshops for women, we had 12 wonderful women graduate!

Our next series begins in April! Dates and open registration will be announced soon!

Here are some reviews from women who have completed this course:

“Highly suggest taking this class – if you want to learn more about personal finance and how to make money work for you... I had a good grasp on my finances, but each class I would walk away with a few tips that made so much sense to me, and made me wonder how I didn’t know that before. I think this class is great for anyone who is at all curious about finance. It isn’t made for one type of person- I think anyone would learn from attending.”

Class takeaways:

--I updated by 401K to invest in a fund with better expense ratio, and learned more about rates of return.

--I learned about other options for savings accounts and moved money into an account with a much higher APY%.

--I learned about investing techniques and was given great advice for what would work for me now and later in life. I now have reliable and easy to understand sources for investing.

--I have signed up for ELLVEST and have invested some money into the ETF stocks/bonds. I would have never done (or felt comfortable) doing this without having taken the class. I learned a lot about investing money and the right places to do it – depending on how much you have and the risks/gains.

--I feel more in control (rather than a bystander to my own income)

--I now understand what my monthly spending has been in the past, which I had never looked into. Even though I haven’t developed a budgeting process yet for myself, it is nice to know that if circumstances ever change, I have the knowledge of how I am spending my money.
