This event is part of a sponsored collaboration with Prudential and Dime Media. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
This past Saturday, I was invited to attend the MomBOSS Influencer Dinner at the Hilton Miami Downtown (aka the Omni…long-time Miamians, remember that place?!). I was very excited to attend. It seemed like a great place to get some inspiration, especially now that since I’m on the brink of starting a new career, I’m at a proverbial crossroad and needed a little motivation.
Here’s a little bit of information about the event:
About The Motivated Moms Tour – The Motivated Moms Tour – MomBOSS Edition is a networking experience in partnership with The BOSS Network designed to equip women (moms) to be “Great Women and Extraordinary Moms” by offering life-changing content to help activate their dreams. The entrepreneur mom, working mom, stay-at-home mom, auntie mom, community mom, or aspiring mom representing different socio-economic backgrounds, education, and cultures gather together to participate in empowering discussions around finance and wealth building, entrepreneurship, goal planning, and parent engagement.
The MomBOSS Influencer Dinner, sponsored by Prudential, was hosted by LaToyia Dennis & Cameka Smith, two amazing ladies who have combined forces to educate and motivate women to be their best selves. This dinner was a precursor to the upcoming Motivated Mom Retreat, being held from September 14th through the 16th in Rockwall, TX.
Following the actual meal, guests were treated to three exceptional panels featuring women in various roles, from working moms (including Prudential representatives), stay-at-home moms, and business owners and entrepreneurs charting their own course. The panels included topics such as women and money, how self-care affects your family’s financial future, and how to be a BOSS!
Prudential offers several resources, online and in person through meetings with financial advisors, that give women the opportunity to become financially educated. As a mom, I know that not only is it important to plan for the future, but also for the unexpected.
Here are just a few key takeaways from the evening:
- We as women have to understand financial literacy.
- You can’t pour from an empty cup, take care of yourself first.
- It is crucial to contribute to life insurance, long term care, and disability income policies.
- Do what you were called to do.
This one stuck with me the most given the path my life is taking right now. I’ll finally be teaching in an elementary school this fall, something I’ve wanted to do since I was a little girl. With that comes some changes to our financial picture, most good but a couple that will need close monitoring so that we are prepared for whatever life throws our way. Becoming financially educated and making the right coverage choices for our family is just one way that I’m a MomBOSS!
