Wow, what a great turnout at the East TN Women's Leadership Summit www.easttnwomensls.com
. The theme this year was "Closing the Gap" on wages, leadership and confidence.
We had over 200 women attend this year. I am one of the seven volunteers and the Finance Chair for the council that puts this on every year. Thanks to Carolyn Jones, Robin Crawford, Karen Wahner, Karen Howell, Angeline Anderson and Carol Montgomery for helping me out on my responsibilities that day. Couldn't have done it without you!!
One of my thoughts about "closing the gap" in our everyday life is to close the gap on communication. MONEY
is an EMOTIONAL AND IMPORTANT
subject that many of us have trouble talking about. I have noticed when the words emotional and important are used to describe the same subject, people shy away from that subject. How do YOU
communicate about MONEY
? Depending on how you view money (which is an important piece that you should be conscious of), money is what drives the economy and pays for houses, cars and college, puts food on the table and clothes on our back. We need to communicate with our business partners, spouses, children and parents about this important and emotional subject. See some of my tips below on how to close your gap on your communication about money.
