‘I don’t think it matters if you’re a woman or not, you have a vagina or you don’t, for you getting after it for business.’ With Codie Sanchez, our second speaker for the day, things got even more real at Her Future!
Throughout her career, Codie Sanchez has worked at the intersection of marketing and money, finding contrarian ways to invest. She’s always balanced her profession with non-profit service to empower women.
Codie took the stage with the aim at empowering us with the tools to become financially free as a dealmaker and business owner. Ready to take some notes?
