Securing Your Legacy: Mind, Body – From Starks Financial – a series to promote financial literacy for women

Securing Your Legacy: Mind, Body and Self 


January 17th, 2017:

MIND:  This three part series will kick off with college planning.  Laura Misner of the College Foundation of North Carolina will show you how to survive paying for your own, your children or your grandchildren’s college tuition and not go broke. 


March 21st, 2017:

BODY:  Come learn how to protect yourself and your finances at the March event.  We believe in a holistic approach not only to financial planning, but life in general.  That is why we have invited local experts to come teach self-defense techniques and we’ll end with tips on defending your finances.


September 26th, 2017:

SELF:  In September, come learn the ins and outs of investing and feel confident in your ability to navigate this ever-changing financial landscape! Women now make up almost half of the entire U.S. workforce, and 40% of women are their family’s primary breadwinner.  This is important because women are becoming and will continue to become more prevalent in the investment planning process given their position in the world today.  

Why are we doing this?  Well, as a firm that is predominately made up of women, we have a long track record of promoting financial literacy among women. We know how hard you work every day and now it’s our turn to give back!

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
