They say breakfast is the best start to any day.
I couldn't agree more. Last Thursday several Pink Petro members and guests hadBreakfast with Wall Street Powerhouse, Sallie Krawcheck.
Houston's finest executive business women packed the 2nd story of La Table Restaurant where we were treated to a 2 course breakfast, networking, and sage advice from Sallie.
I joined Ellevate Network over a year ago to learn from Sallie as we've built Pink Petro. I had the chance to meet with her last year when she gave Pink Petro two thumbs up and a bravo!
Sound bites I gathered from last week's breakfast:
On energy and the state of jobs: Stay relevant. Disruption will continue.
On entrepreneurship: It's hard. (Ahem, I don't disagree a bit.)
On investing: Women retire with two-thirds less savings than men even though we live six to eight years longer.
Sallie also informed us about her invitation-only Ellevest platform which was launched earlier this year. Women are an untapped market overlooked by banks far too long. Ellevest is more personalized approach to investing. It gives women the chance to choose the experiences they want and the platform creates a personalized plan.
My hats off to the fabulous Jen Roosth. She knows how to put on an amazing event with great women.
