Women and Money 2008


Florida Women Mean Business!

Florida women have the unique opportunity to learn how to better manage their finances at Women and Money 2008 and Florida Women Mean Business!, two FREE seminar series presented by the Florida Commission on the Status of Women.

Women and Money 2008 focuses on money management, budgets and credit, retirement and investment strategies, and estate planning.

New to 2008 is the Florida Women Mean Business! seminar series, focusing helping Florida women successfully start and grown their own businesses.
The conferences are designed for women of all ages, backgrounds and levels of financial knowledge.

Florida Women Mean Business!

According to the Center for Women’s Business Research, there are an estimated 716,209 privately-held, 50% or more women-owned, firms in Florida, accounting for more than 48% of all privately held firms in the state. Women-owned firms in Florida currently generate more than $152 billion in sales and employ more than one million people in our state.

It is estimated that between 1997 and 2004, the number of women-owned firms in Florida increased by 36.5%, their employment grew by 34.7% and realized a 63% increase in sales.

That is why the Florida Commission on the Status of Women has created Florida Women Mean Business! seminars, to help Florida women successfully start and grow their businesses. Florida Women Mean Business! will provide important information, inspirational stories, and resources that are available to help women become successful entrepreneurs.  

Women and Money 2008

The Florida Commission on the Status of Women is pleased to sponsor Women and Money 2008: Purses to Portfolios. Statistics show that most women will be responsible for managing their own finances at some time in their lives, but most are not prepared with the knowledge and skills to do so. That is why the Commission has teamed up with numerous partners to create this valuable resource for the women of Florida. These conferences will be held in several cities throughout the state in the coming months, and will give women the opportunity to learn from national and local financial experts, and the ability secure their financial futures.

A special thanks to all those who made this seminar possible:
