Creating Your Wealthy Mentality (Grand Hall A)

Join Marisol Isaula, The Wealthy Mujer, in this transformative breakout session as she introduces "Creating Your Wealthy Mentality," a journey to redefine wealth beyond financial gain. We've been taught that wealth equates to money and while money is needed and important, we can embody wealth in many ways thus creating prosperity in all areas of our life.  
Marisol will introduce the Wealthy Mujer framework, which encompasses six pillars of wealth: Purpose, Relationships, Health, Confidence/Spirit, Communication, and Money. 
This session will give you the tools you'll need to redefine wealth to align with your values and purpose. Through interactive discussion, you will develop personalized strategies to achieve your wealthy goals while connecting with your internal power and courage needed to live authentically and aligned with their purpose.  
Don't miss this opportunity to shift your mindset, cultivate abundance, and embark on a journey towards true prosperity. 

Venture Capital Charla (Grand Hall A)

Together we will learn about the experiences of Latinos in venture capital (VC), learn from leading mujeres in the industry, and discover opportunities to leverage venture capital as a wealth building tool.

During this Venture Capital Charla, Jennifer Abele, VC 414 Founder and Managing Partner, and Adela Cepeda, Angeles Investors Board Chair, will get candid about their journey to helping undercapitalized founders grow their businesses and become investors.

Jennifer and Adela will start with an overview of VC basics, and then dive into strategies that they are implementing across the country to make VC accessible to both underrepresented founders and investors.

Closing the Gap | Building Generational Wealth Through Homeownership & Real Estate (Grand Halls BC)

Homeownership remains one of the most powerful and impactful tools to build generational wealth, so why are Latinos continually underrepresented as homeowners in Wisconsin and across the nation? Amanda and Maria Watts will dive deeper into the multiple facets of homeownership, along with its history, complexities, challenges and how you can utilize homeownership to meet your future financial goals (or the next generation’s!).

You can also take your investment portfolio to the next level by considering real estate. Explore the different real estate investment categories, and learn about current trends in each of those markets from industry expert, Ivan Gamboa.
