2017 Women’s Financial Conference in Corning features welcome by national financial educator
The “Budgetnista” shapes women’s financial futures
The 4th annual Southern Tier Financial Conference: Financial Education for Women by Women is scheduled for November 4, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Triangle Lounge at Corning Community College on Spencer Hill Campus, Corning. The event caters to women to give them a day out while helping them learn how to improve their mind, body, and checkbook. This year’s event is pleased to have Tiffany “The Budgetnista” Aliche, an award-winning teacher of financial empowerment, scheduled to present a personal welcome to the conference by video.
The Budgetnista and her four sisters were taught money management on a daily basis by their father who was a chief financial officer and accountant. At age 26 Tiffany had a credit score in the 800’s, owned her own home, and taught at a daycare center. But in one swift movement, the school closed at the same time as a credit card scam cost her $35,000. At age 30 she had lost her job, her home, and her confidence.
It took Tiffany some time, but she was reminded that she knew how to fix her situation. She created her Budgetnista company to teach financial education to others. United Way hired her to write a financial curriculum for women, and she was on her way. She enjoyed making finances fun, relatable and actionable for women. The next step was writing her first book, The One Week Budget. She appeared on television and in newspaper articles promoting the book. Then she took a step beyond making a difference in her own community. She created the Live Richer Challenge movement as a free online resource to help shape women’s financial futures.
The Southern Tier Financial Conference Is open to women ages 16 and older. Following the Budgetnista’s welcome, Lisa Rustici, of Love Your Life Coaching, will give the keynote on How to Live An Abundant Life. The day will be filled with sessions on a number of hot topics such as How To Buy a Car, How to Read Your Homeowners Policy, The Importance of Improving your Credit Score, Budgeting for Busy People and Feng Shui Your Finances.
Cost is just $25 per person before September 30. The fee includes lunch, networking, conference materials, a Budgetnista book as well as door prizes and exhibitors.
