Dani Hughes @divinedani

One of my superpowers is making connections.  Whether it’s connecting people or situations, when something snaps together and a new possibility is born, I am delighted to my core.

I’m amazed by the powerful women networkers and influencers that I am blessed to know, and how much I have learned from them. I see women as the future financial power connectors that move markets and shape policy.

I believe women will transform and align economies to educate and vitalize the world, not build walls and drop bombs.

Valerie Sanchez @divinevalsan

I always want to hear a woman’s money story because the stories we tell ourselves influence how we spend, invest and behave with our money. When women can break free from limiting money beliefs and embrace our full financial power there is nothing stopping us.

I want women to truly understand that the journey toward financial well-being is ever changing and full of lessons. Through my own money story and financial experiences, I have learned that our financial journey requires ups and downs.

Because of my faith-based principles, I believe that one of my purposes in life is to share my experiences of having fallen on my behind so that other women don’t have to go through the the same in their finances.
