Sarah and Georgie Smallwood, an angel investor who only invests in female-founded companies, have an open discussion on why this is her winning strategy as a funder.

Save $ZERO and Still Retire a Multi-Millionaire

Don’t do it; you’re leaving money on the table. Don will tell you the why’s and how’s of saving nothing today but exiting with abundance. In this session you will learn:

* Why it’s smarter and safer to run your own business
* Why you should sell, but not now
* How to be your own roll-up – why can’t you be the next aggregator?
* Let’s have fun building huge wealth and then help many people do the same!
