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.
