1st Event - Offense and defense and Playing Field of Personal Finance

Hello Leaders, 

One of the most important area in our lives is Finance. It is tax season. Some of us are very good with handling our finance while some are struggling living pay check to pay check. There is a saying "It is not how much money you make but how much you save and what you do with the money. I believe by learning how to tackle the Goliath of finance, we will be able to get better in other areas of life.

Therefore for our very first event at the Philadelphia Leadership Academy, we have invited an established international speaker, Carlos Fontana to do a free Workshop on The Offense, Defense and Playing Field of Personal Finance on 3/21/2014. He will be sharing important financial principles: Long term thinking, Delay Gratification and the Correct way to Eliminate Debt. 

Personally, he has guided me through erasing my debt, and reversing my finances to the point of being able to purchase a home. Carlos is also a well known author, entrepreneur and leadership consultant.

Date: March 21st, Friday Night
Venue: The Philadelphia Building, 1315 Walnut Street Suite 320, Philadelphia, PA
Agenda: 7:00pm to 7.15pm Networking 7.15pm to 8.00pm Financial Talk 8.00pm to 8.30pm Workshop - Balance Your Budget

Feel Free to invite your friends! Attendance is FREE! Please rsvp as seats will be limited.

Here is an excerpt from Carlo’s Intl Blog: http://7dailynuggets.blogspot.com/2013/06/financial-freedom-101.html

Carlos has a BS degree in Agronomic Engineering from the Federal University of Santa Maria, Brazil, and Masters and Doctoral degrees in Agricultural Engineering Technology from Michigan State University. He served at the Kellogg Company for 21 years in several positions, including Director of Cost Innovation. He then left the corporate world in 2007 to follow his entrepreneurial spirit, which has served him very well thus far.

    I am very excited to come to Philadelphia to meet and share with you the personal finance principles that led me to financial freedom. If you follow these simple principles you can achieve financial freedom too. Looking forward to seeing you at Culture Works on March 21, 7pm. Blessings, Carlos
