When Money Wise Women held a conference in Auburn, Washington I attended and was forever changed. The speakers were top notch, and I was able to relate to them. The education offered was easy to understand which made assimilating the knowledge into my financial health feel as good as buying a new pair of shoes. My family's financial well being has never been healthier, and continues to improve because of the continued knowledge and support of this organization.
My personal experience with Money Wise Women spans over several years, starting with the drive and desire to learn what I did not know about finances. Being a single mom forces one to be creative in so many different areas of motherly reaponsibilities. This organization helped me in understanding the importance of having a budget, learning how to plan for financial success, etc. I am so thankful for having met Marcia Brixey and her knowledgeable and helpful team of coaches and mentors!
As an attendee at Money Wise Women workshops I found the information presented to be of the highest calibur out there. The information provided was very pertinent to me and the speakers were very knowledgeable and highest quality of professionalism.
The information I received was very good and motivational. My background is financial planning and I still learned from the tips that were provided, such as keeping track of cash expenditures in a check book log. I was motivated to keep a budget and track my expenses. I was inspired by the fashion show from recycled clothing. Both seminars I attended hasd several different workshops you could choose to attend on a variety of interesting topics, from retirement planning, investing, insurance planning, and estate planning for example.
What is more important than money. It has to be how we use it. When I was first doing the books for Money Wise Women Educational Services, I thought it was a great idea and a needed organization. After I went to my first conference, I realized it was much more. There are such interesting speakers and they deal in all areas of money; from emotional issues regarding earning and spending money to techniques to use in daily life. Money Wise Women teach us to come to terms with the money we have and to get the money we need. It is very much about developing yourself as a person.
Both of the conferences were excellent! I learned so much from each conference. The speakers and vendors were very informative. The cost was wonderful...so affordable. I go to conferences for my profession, and I can say Money Wise Women conferences are a steal!
I found the structure of the seminars to be very helpful to the participants. There was an opening, luncheon speaker and a closing, with breakout sessions at other times. There was a selection of breakout sessions so the participants could chose the topics of interest to them. I spoke on estate planning and would meet with the participants after my session. At times throughout the remainder of the seminar I would be available to the participants for questions. I felt Marcia's topics were of particular interest to anyone, especially women, who generally hide from financial topics. Her approach is from a personal standpoint, easily understood, and full of relevant facts and guidelines. She has a book that covers her basic program, which is easy to read for the financial newbies. I have and would continue to recommend Marcia's seminars to anyone who is trying to take command of their life and their finances. They contain a wealth of information.
I attended several seminars and the classes they offered were very useful and enlightening. I was able to received information on estate planning, credit card monitoring and consolidation, and budget preparation just to name a few. I felt that my time and money were well spent. I also invited my daughter and two friends to join me. They expressed gratitude for the opportunity to participate in the seminars. I am a lifelong customer of Money Wise Women Educational Services. It is my belief that every woman should be able to independently take care of herself. Money Wise Women gives you the tools to become financial independent.
I reaped the benefits of numerous educational opportunities regarding Women and Money. Money Wise Women has been a key component of my continuous learning about money, how to manage it and how to think about it. It has changed my life.
I had the pleasure of being a presentor at these conference. I met many of the women and my favorite comment was
I founded Money Wise Women Educational Services in August 2002 after reading the quote "Our purpose in life is to find our gift, perfect if, and give it back to others". It's so rewarding to hear from women whose lives have changed by attending Money Wise Women conferences and participating in the Get Smart teleseminars.
