“10 things every DollarDiva should know by age 18”

Did you know that 90% of us will be solely responsible for our own economic well-being at some point in our life? Its time for you to get money $avvy! In this one day workshop you will:

  • Find where you fall on the material girl scale (are you a More is More Girl or the Conscious Consumer …maybe a little of both?).
  • Get the 411 on making, saving, investing, giving, and talking about money
  • Learn how to get paid what your worth. Identify your Inner Worth (your unique values), your Net Worth (what you own minus what you owe), and the Worth of Your Salable Skills (how much do you ask to get paid for your next baby sitting job?).
  • Bring fantasy to reality – uncover what kind of lifestyle your ideal career will afford you. From chemical engineer to graphic artist, can you afford that new beemer or will you bus it to the movies?
  • Get the secrets to successful budgeting!

An Income of Her Own® Conferences

In 1951 a single mother went to work as a secretary. To hide her many typing mistakes she invented a white tempura and called it “mistake out”. Gradually other secretaries began to buy it. She changed the name to White Out and sold it to the Gillette Corporation for $47.5 million plus royalties. Bette Nesmith Graham was an entrepreneur.

Tap into your entrepreneurial spirit at this one day workshop where you will:

  • Learn how to experience your own extraordinary character (or as we say “embracing your weirdness”).
  • Network (meet/greet/interview and chit chat) with local women business owners. Find out how they got started, what keeps them motivated, and what they think is most rewarding and challenging about being the boss.
  • Explore the culture of business and the lingo that goes with it through interactive, hands-on activities (no vocab quizzes!)
  • Get the basics of what owning your own business is all about. Have a great idea for a new product or service? Uncover what a business plan is and how it takes that idea off the ground.
