Total Woman Takeaways

The Debt Free Divas had an amazing weekend. Rockford, IL (2 hours north of Chicago) played host to the Total Woman Expo. This scholarship fundraiser and conference offered attendees an opportunity to be inspired by Donna Brazil, a CNN political contributor; participate in an expo, and take in a Fiscally Fit and Lov’n It workshop by yours truly.


Over four workshops, we had an opportunity to share our experience with eliminating debt, managing our household expenses, and working toward a more prosperous future. Attendees also shared their struggles with fiscal priorities. All in all, this was a very productive weekend. Since we couldn’t bring you with us, we’ll share the top 6 takeaways from the weekend.
