The ABN partners with finance guru Kim Kiyosaki for webinar to help members realise their financial dreams
Suzi Dafnis, Community Director at the ABN says that Kim’s work is highly regarded and believes the webinar will be valuable for the network’s members.
“It takes guts to dream big when it comes to money, especially if you’ve come from a poor or middle-class background. And, while not all of us want to drive a Porsche or wear Chanel, most of us want to see our dreams come to fruition. Often, those dreams require money to be fulfilled. Most women in small business get so caught up in trying to run a business that they fail to take care of their financial future,” Suzi said.
The webinar will offer practical advice on how to become financially literate and make the right decisions to ensure long term benefits as well as why it’s important to take responsibility for your money and be self-sufficient.
“I’ve been following Kim’s mantra of aspire, acquire, apply for many years and it’s helped me reach my business and personal financial goals. I think her advice will give women the confidence and knowledge that’s required for a healthy attitude towards money,” said Suzi.
