June 30, 2023: A Note from Marguerita Cheng, CFP® Pro — I invite you to tune in for this week’s episode of my podcast and video show, Margaritas with Marguerita, where for 15 minutes each Friday, we start the weekend off by learning from industry experts how to flex our financial and entrepreneurial muscles.
Rita asks Julia and Paul:
- Tell me about Girl to Boss!
- Who should read this book?
- You also have some interesting data about women in the workforce. This was one of your motivations behind writing the book. Can you explain?
- You’re working with a charity too. Tell me about that!
- How can girls — and Moms and Dads — learn more about this incredible project?
