This year was my 3rd year attending a conference, and I thing that every year has been full of information. I recommend every women out there to go to a conference. I also want to thank Audrey Brooks-Scott for being an amazing mentor. Thank you.

I have attended three conferences and each has added new ideas and tools to my financial knowledge. The enthusiastic speakers are so open and willing to talk. I learned from Gail Perry-Mason helpful websites, and the value of writing to companies. With the encouragement of Kat Belluci we are selling my husband’s special car. I still hope to be a product tester-endorser in my retirement life. I have profited from the [Money Finder System] to be aware of how those tiny expenditures can add up. I enrolled in deferred compensation and saved on taxes and have some back-up for my retirement income. I have listed my credit card info by phone numbers, available balance, and interest and expiration dates. I still did not get my credit bureau reports because the stupid voice response never got my simple name and address correct, but in buying a house, saw my and my husbands credit scores from all three. I am now happily retired this month and confident that the tools I have learned will help

Since I started the mentoring program in April, I have been amazed at how much it helped me. I am nearing 50, and I really didn’t have a plan. Nine months ago I didn’t have any savings - no emergency savings, no “Pink-Slip(tm) Savings...which I learned the importance of from Women’s Money. Today, almost nine months since the conference, I do have an emergency savings fund and I also have just a bit more before I have a fully funded Pink-Slip savings. Now...I’m excited to say that I am looking towards creating a retirement plan. I just have a few more steps to go, and I think I’ll be ready for bootcamp. It’s so exciting!

Hello my name is Olivia Brown I am a twenty year old college sophomore. Throughout my life time I have experienced multiple struggles with my finances. Growing up in a single parent household was tough, but it allowed me to learn about taking control of what I spent and learning how to budget. I attended the Women Money Conference during my senior year of high school. While in attendance, I was offered different methods that could assist with preparing for college and how to budget my money wisely. Not only was this one of the best decisions I made, but it also was extremely helpful in my first semester. Although, my family is considered middle class there was still the expectation that I would personally pay for school. In facing this decision I chose to find part-time employment that would accommodate my schedule. Throughout this next semester I will practice being more efficient with my finances. I cannot wait to return to the Women?s Money Conference this year to gain more fun.

I’m so excited right now! I just got approved for a car loan with USAA. I learned about USAA at the Women’s Money Conference in Las Vegas. I also learned a lot about credit from the credit speaker from credit.com. I went to credit.com and found out that my score was good, but to make it better I needed an account mix. I thought this was a perfect opportunity to by the car I desperately need. I thought I’d have to buy some junker until the tools that womensmoney.org and the conference gave me. I have received an interest rate that is HALF of what the dealership wanted to give me. I didn’t know you don’t have to be in the military to get a loan from USAA. I am now a proud member! I’m so excited. Thank you to Geri from credit.com and from the mentor that recommended USAA.

My daughter came with me to the conference and has met with her mentoring group for a few months. At 18 she opened up her own bank account with savings attached. She’s building a credit the smart way, and we have started a college savings account too. Thank you!! This has been an incredibly valuable experience.

Phenomenal Experience! Because of the conference I attended, I now have one day a month to “manage my business” just like I do in my real business. It’s amazing because I just spend one day thinking about my PERSONAL finances. It’s really made a world of difference because the other 29 days of the month I don’t stress out about my spending or my finances. Thank you to Gail Perry-Mason - a fantastic speaker!
