Thank you Susan for speaking to our netWork. After Susan spoke, there was discussion about starting an investment group. If anyone in our membership has an interest in starting an investment group for women - please do! I think we have several members with a background in investments that could start a spin-off group from the Women's netWork. Is there any interest out there?

I would not mind having more information on an investment group, as I don't have any idea how one works...And I am probably not the only one with these questions?? Is this an advice/sharing investment group, or would the group actually make an investment together? How much is needed to start an investment, or should I say, how little??!!!

Most investment groups do invest with each member putting in an equal sum and the group deciding how to invest it at regular meetings. The best source is naic.org which is a nonprofit group and has all the info you would ever need. You would need to set this up right so everyone's $ is handled correctly.
I'd love to be involved as investor and or adviser, but wouldn't have stock trades go through me.
If that's too much of a commitment, we could meet once for a group discussion on investments to talk general ideas and increase our knowledge.

Women's netWork said...

Could a group meet - say a sub group of the Women's netWork - to have monthly discussions on finance and investing? If there was interest, an actual investment club may form. How beneficial would it be for women with an interest to meet simply to learn more about the choices they are making regarding investments and planning for their own retirement?

The thing that struck me about Susan's talk was that her life-style and perspective are different than mine. I don't have "fistfuls of money," and I was wondering how many of us Manistee women in that room do? I'm also wondering how many of us would like to have a few fistfuls of money...I would!

That's what this network is all about...raising the bar for women...we can use this network to help increase a women's worth. Do business with other women. Support other women. Work together with other women to improve our financial place in business. Let's learn more about financing and increasing our wealth by exposing ourselves to new opportunities, learn the financing vocabulary, talk about money, and be comfortable asking to earn more money. Stand up. Support other women. Pool our resources and make things happen for other women...hopefully - we can help more women get more "fistfulls of money."
