BREAKOUT SESSION

Smart Money. Smart Women.

with Courtney Stewart


 

The way we manage our money has a great impact on our lives, happiness and (in Courtney's opinion) our leadership abilities. Today, Courtney will share easy tips to help take control of your financial future and lead with even more credibility and confidence.

I discussed how far women have come in business and financial management over the last 100 years. I told a few personal stories (some humorous) about working in a male-dominated industry. I also referenced a few points from Sheryl Sandberg's Ted Talk. After that, I discussed an article from Money Magazine about "The Four Financial Habits of Highly Successful People" and then dove into the basics of financial planning. I included some unique challenges and successes that women tend to have when it comes to investing and financial planning.
