    Becoming certified as a Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) is about so much more than being able to attach the colorful "women owned" logo to your business card. It's about opening up doors to a network of thousands of other women entrepreneurs and hundreds of corporate and government partners looking to work with women-owned businesses.

     Attend this webcast to learn:


    -  The eligibility requirements so you can know if certification is right for you

    -   The process, costs, documents required and what to expect

    -   The benefits and opportunities available to certified women owned businesses

    Financial freedom is a highly sought after goal and incredibly exciting to achieve.  But most individuals have one big scary thing standing in their way - debt.  Americans carry an average of $92,727 in consumer debt, paying interest rates of over 17% for most.

    Paying off debt is the secret sauce to financial success. In this discussion, we’ll talk about the primary strategies for paying debt off, how to know which is right for you, and a few benefits to getting rid of it quickly as possible.

    Meet the speaker:

    Kristen Ricupero is a Financial Coach & Profit Advisor who specializes in helping small business owners, entrepreneurs and driven professionals in both their business & personal finances. She works closely with individuals to simplify money, strengthen their financial management skills, eliminate debt, and create cash flow management systems to maximize profit and ultimately build wealth. By developing specific action plans that are tailored to each client’s needs, values and goals, it allows them to live and retire in ways they only thought they could dream. 

    Kristen is fueled by her passion to help others succeed and become financially free. As soon as the pandemic hit, Kristen immediately began offering financial workshops virtually, and then launched a digital course and online group coaching program. During that time, Kristen helped her students and clients pay off over $500,000 in personal debt and increase their savings by $154,000.
