What's Wealth Management have to do with Principle Quest??

on Fri, 2017-09-08 15:31

The 2nd edition of Wealth Management Unwrapped was inspired by my Wall Street relationships over four decades. Early on I discovered clarity on my own principles was essential, and so, for the past five years, the work I'm privileged to do is with women who are Principle Quest-ers, fulfilling my deepest yearnings to make a difference. I owe a great debt of gratitude to many, and these connections are a true treasure of my life! Pictured here signing a book for a pal from Principle Quest, the day before the launch!

Supporting a group like Virtual Enterprise Int'l (VEI) is easy because once you volunteer to judge a live business competition (think Shark Tank!), you feel inspired. You will be convinced that VEI classes, actually held during the school day, teach more than almost any class you can think of from your own high school days! Now in 400+ schools and reaching 12,000 students around the world, VEI is also a fascinating volunteer opportunity for a business professional who would like to be a judge or coach a virtual business team.
