Self-Love is the Business: Financial Wellness Retreat
The Financial Wellness Retreat is a free one-day event where participants will learn important financial tools to assist them as a business owner. The topics we will present to our participants are but not limited to: budgeting, business loans, tax filing, and telling your story. In addition to financial workshops, our participants will also experience yoga and meditation while learning stress relieving techniques. The Retreat participants will be selected among applicants who apply to attend targeting minority woman-owned businesses in the Houston area.
From our Retreat Host: As a native Houstonian, I will never forget the devastation that hit our city with Hurricane Harvey. My Studio was undergoing repairs when the storm hit and the damage caused me to temporarily close. I decided to reach out and partner with St. Johns Church-Downtown to offer free community yoga and mommy & me classes at the church so we could all release and renew in such a stressful time. I was very fortunate to be able to reopen my Studio. There are many businesses who never reopened their doors or closed shortly after. I will also always remember how our city rose up and supported each other with immediacy. And while the efforts were amazing and record breaking, the work is still not done. Financial problems is the number one cause of stress in America and is even more prevalent among small business owners and it deepens when you're minority and woman-owned. We have to recognize what is at stake having the right tools and being educated on ways to relieve financial stress. The impact will assist business owners to be successful and overall have a healthier lifestyle for themselves and their families and communities they serve. This is what I hope to accomplish with our participants by offering the Financial Wellness Retreat.
Love & Light,
