This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
I believe you can never know too much about your finances. Whether you're a millionaire or just trying to make it from one paycheck to the next, it's important to be financially savvy and to realize that you are ultimately in control of your money. On September 23, Zions Bank's Women's Financial Group is hosting Utah's very first financial conference designed specifically for women.
It's called "Smart Women, Smart Money," and Lori Chillingworth, manager of the Women's Financial Group, tells me it's designed to empower, support and educate women in achieving financial independence through education. The Women's Financial Group is Utah's oldest financial center for women. Lori tells me her office regularly receives requests from women who want to learn more about their finances, and she thinks the "Smart Women, Smart Money" conference is just one way her office can educate all women, regardless of their financial circumstances.
The one-day conference is packed with great speakers and workshops. From 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at the Salt Palace Exhibit Hall, participants will hear from acclaimed speakers, including noted author Karen Sheridan, economic consultant Jeff Thredgold and Barbara Stanny, daughter of H&R Block co-founder Richard Bloch. Topics at the conference include personal budgeting, taking control of your debt, retirement planning and the ABCs of investing.
This one-of-a-kind financial conference is only open to the first 1,500 people who pre-register online at www.zionsbank.com or by calling 1-800-558-3794 or 801-844-9328. Lori tells me you won't be disappointed with the "Smart Women, Smart Money" conference. In fact, attending the conference could be one of the smartest financial decisions you'll ever make. After all, it is free.
For Zions Bank, I'm Fred Ball. I'm speaking on business.
