IECSC Las Vegas Class: Financial Fitness: 6 Surefire Ways to Increase Profitability

What makes you passionate about your class topic? 

Having overcome financial ruin because of what I didn't know or think I would never understand, I am passionate about taking people on this journey as we delve into the power and impact of financial organization. I make it fun, engaging and delivered in a way that is simple. I will break the stigma about understanding finance and give you industry specific solutions that will empower your long-term growth! 

If you could attend one class at IECSC Las Vegas (besides your own), which would it be and why? 

“Boomers are Big Business! Marketing Spa and Wellness to Older Adults," by Nancy Griffin. I love a focus on this generation, as they still represent a very large part of the population and, for the most part, have the discretionary income to invest, are motivated to look young and vital, and possibly have retired to a warmer climate that has an impact on the health of their skin.
