Financial Freedom

Alicia Sisk-Morris, CPA

Fear, Shame, and anger are the most common emotions surrounding money. Sometimes our feelings towards money is so strong that we start to hate money because we believe that it is the cause of our problems. – Suze Orman

Money is not emotional, humans are. In Alicia’s keynote, we will dig deep into understanding how money is a tool that will help us grow our businesses so that we can take care of our families, secure our financial future, and promote providing excellent services and products to our clients. Understanding how banks, investors, and customers see us is a crucial step to our self-reflection and growth. Learn how to take control over your finances so that you can make more strategic growth decisions and build a solid path to prosperity.

50 Min Keynote at “Tenacious Tuesdays” on Tue, Dec 5th from 3:00-5:00 PM (FREE event)
