Dollars and Sense:  Women, Wealth, and Investing for Your Secure Future

Dollars and Sense: Women, Wealth, and Investing for Your Secure Future

Women contribute $7 trillion in consumer and business spending in the U.S.  1.3 million of women earn $100K or more a year.  40% of all private American businesses are owned by women.  And yet, a recent national study found that 41% of affluent women were "not at all" confident about their ability to invest.  What contributes to this lack of self-confidence?  How can we shift assumptions and beliefs to ensure a long-term fiscally safe and rewarding future for ourselves, our families, and our legacy? 

At our Oct. 17th event, we were joined by special guests Arlene Weidberg and Susan Hirshman, awe-inspiring women who have built successful careers in real estate, stock and traditional portfolio management, and financial consulting. 

We discussed what we can do to change our own personal habits as related to spending today, saving for tomorrow, and investing wisely.  We explored strategic investment options, asset accumulation, and how to build a healthy personal financial bottom-line. 

And of course, true to the spirit of each 6-Figures event, we socialized, networked, enjoyed tasty treats, adult beverages, and amazing views overlooking Times Square. 

Our nonprofit partner for the evening was Savvy Ladies, an organization that empowers women through financial education.  A very special thank you to our host and event sponsor, Duane Morris.

Tania Sterl -- Fashion Designer and Founder, Sterl On Style Image Consulting.  Tania spent 20 years immersed in the business of fashion:  from design to sales to production management.  Tania was a senior designer for Donna Degnan, and was featured in WWD, In Style, Marie Claire, and Lucky Magazine.  She is a frequent speaker at Savvy Ladies, a nonprofit that empowers women through financial literacy. 

Tarsha Gibbons -- Image Consultant and Stylist.  Tarsha works holistically with clients to enhance their professional and personal images.  Color is Tarsha's specialty, and she develops custom color solutions to breathe life and excitement and WOW to how clients look on the outside, and how they feel on the inside.  Her clientele includes entrepreneurs, stay-at-home moms, and CEOs.  Tarsha is firmly committed to health and wellness and conducts workshops for children.

From Point A to Plan B: A Second Life That Wows

Our evening opened with 6-Figures Founder, Jan Mercer Dahms, posing the question, "When you were a little girl, what did you want to be when you grew up?"  Many 6-Figures women had informally chatted about a "Plan B" or a "Second Life," where our careers would have significant meaning and fulfillment.  Realizing that many of our professional dreams linked back to our aspirations we had as little girls, we created an entire event dedicated to exploring that internal feeling that something was missing in our professional spheres.  We discussed living up to our fullest potential, getting stuck on executing our dream careers, planning for life changes, and how to enjoy our "Second Life" once we've achieved it. 

We were joined by panelists who have that "wow factor."  They all left their successful corporate careers to reinvent themselves, and continued to inspire, motivate, and embrace change.  They shared with us their personal stories, pivotal learning lessons, and tips for getting from Point A to Plan B. 

Our panel included: 

Gurjot Sidhu | CEO and Creative Director, Gurjot New York.  Once a management consultant and e-commerce CEO, Gurjot experienced first hand the lack of high-quality, relevant businesswear available in the market for women.  Today, Gurjot New York is a luxury bespoke, custom, and ready-to-wear line for the professional women. 

Christi Scofield | President & Founder, Icebreaker Entertainment; Author, Entrepreneur.  For Christi, it all started with being incredibly bored playing a board game during a ski trip.  After designing one very sexy board game, Christi is now the CEO of an international consumer products company, including apparel, games, iPhone apps, and beauty supplies. 

Maggy Siegel | President, Siegel Strategic Consulting; CEO & COO Extraordinaire.  Classically trained pianist turned innovative agent of corporate change, Maggy's accomplishments include:  President & COO, Dylan's Candy Bar; President, Nina Shoe Corp; CEO, Judith Leiber; President, Baume & Mercier; and VP level positions at Chanel, Coach & Tiffany & Co.

We spiffed up for Summer in 6 easy steps.  Tips from our friends at Elie Tahari and personal branding expert and 6-Figures founder, Jan Mercer Dahms, we learned how to look like a million $$$ without breaking the bank. 

A 20% shopping discount from Elie Tahari...and...

10% of all sales were donated to Alphabet Kids.  In collaboration with The J. Luce Foundation, Alphabet Kids promotes tolerance and understanding at an early age and advocates for literacy, community, and raising children to be active global citizens
