AmeriFlex Hosts ‘Fun & Finance’ Events to Educate Women

Santa Barbara-based AmeriFlex has been a leading provider of financial advice to businesses, entrepreneurs, families and individuals for the past 25 years. During that time, the AmeriFlex team has come to realize that women face a unique set of issues when planning for their financial future.

In an effort to help women become better equipped to address these issues, AmeriFlex hosts an educational series called Fun & Finance as part of the Woman Investor Program. At each event, different topics are discussed, and often local businesses and organizations are highlighted.

At the September event, local travel expert Clare Swan of Clare Swan Montecito was a guest speaker.

This past Wednesday night’s featured topic was "The Power of Giving." Local nonprofit organization Food from the Heart board chair woman Kelly Onnen and local CPA Carola Nicholson spoke on the subject, as did AmeriFlex’s Woman Investor team — Bibi Taylor, Corrine Barroso and Hannah Sink. By providing a fun environment, the hope is that women will feel comfortable joining in the conversation about finances and more apt to participate in future financial conversations.

“In our experience, women are successful investors — when they invest. With the current economic conditions, more women being major contributors to household incomes and starting the majority of new businesses in the country, there is a need to arm women with the information they need to be confident making financial decisions,” said Taylor, MBA, AmeriFlex wealth manager. “We know that women do not have a preference in working with male or female financial advisors. What they do care about is being heard, having their needs addressed and being educated on how to best help themselves and their families have a successful future.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
