NAWBO Houston Monthly Lunch Event

“Wise Wealthy Women – Powerful Truths for Powerful Women”

You are successful and super busy running a business. Why?

1. To fulfill a passion to do what you love while contributing to society (purpose) and

2. To create cash flow to spend, save and invest – secure a nice lifestyle and build wealth so you and your family have choices, peace and security.

How wise are you in managing the cash that flows into and through your balance sheets – business and personal? What financial truths and/or myths guide you in your decisions? Are getting the results you desire?

Today, more than 90% of the country’s wealth is owned by less than 10% of the people. This wealthier group thinks about money in an uncommon manner – they don’t follow the crowd. Learning their secrets may be the key to unlocking your full financial potential.

Join us for an enlightening and engaging conversation about financial truths and myths. Take away some uncommon, life changing advice that you can apply to your business and personal life.

TAKE NOTE: Attendees will receive a FREE signed copy of Rick Ray’s new book: The Trusted Advisor: Learn the Hidden Rules and Win the Game of Building Wealth.

Presented by: Richard (Rick) L. Ray and Kim Kelley, Wealth Design Group
