Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Ladies, you are invited to join us for a dynamic day of learning, growing and networking. We would never build a house without a plan or layout. Then why should we go through life without setting goals? We will discuss what it takes to pursue your passions and dreams. We will plan, set short and long term goals, discuss accountability and achievement. Have you been thinking about entrepreneurship, opening up your business (part-time or full-time), pursuing your passion, going back to school, career change, writing your first book, purchasing your first home? As ladies, we face daily setbacks and challenges, but we are capable overcoming. You will hear from a group of passionate and dedicated ladies, impacting their communities as change agents.

Lunch included. Invite a friend and join us, as we learn, grow and network with other ladies. As lifelong learners, don't pass this opportunity to learn, grow, network and build positive relationships with like-minded ladies. Regardless of our positions, there are always opportunities to grow and learn. You will be empowered, inspired and motivated to begin or continue your journey. "Goals on the road to achievement cannot be achieved without discipline and consistency.” Denzel Washington

“I want to get the word out”

Thanks for letting me introduce myself, I am Sally Gouveia. People that are just meeting me for the first time ask me how I can help. They are typically individuals who do quite well for themselves but we can all use a helping hand. I look forward to taking the guess work out of your financial situation. Every one of my clients possess a financial plan that guides them through the myriad of decisions that gets us to our goals.

Your plan will guide you to your destination, such as, holding the keys to your first home, looking into the eyes of your precious newborn baby, waking up without an alarm clock in retirement, ensuring the cottage is around for generations of family memories, or looking after your loved ones when you change your address to heaven.

My clients are typically individuals or families looking to maximize their income by having it work for them. Together we creatively come up with strategies that work best for you. The key ingredient; the implementation of a plan made specifically for you. This will enable you to reach your financial goals during each stage of your journey and allow you to focus more on creating memories. Celebrating achievements is too much fun to pass up! It all started at a young age for me. My father, who is a farmer taught me the importance of money and hard work. When I had received ‘gift money’ at seven, we walked to the bank and opened up my first savings account. I later invested in RRSP’s which I used towards a down payment in my mid-twenties on my first home. The last two decades I spent working with finances, banks and credit. This assisted in paying for my York University education but also peaked my interest into this vast landscape of managing money, maximizing this ever changing legislation, interest rates and the list goes on.

I want to get the word out. We all deserve to have our money work for us and celebrate with our loved ones when we reach our goals, so I plan to pay it forward. I look forward to getting to know you and your family. Creating these precious memories that we get to relive in our hearts is truly what this life is all about.
