myNiagara Online Co-Founder, Cathy Berkhout-Bosse will be part of a Women's Entrepreneurship Panel discussion on Tuesday, October 17th 7:15 - 9:00 AM at Lookout Point Country Club.

Join us over breakfast as we share stories and advice ranging from financing your start-up to reading a cash flow statement to financial life lessons learned from the experience of launching and operating our community enterprise.

Lesson #1: How Much Money Do you Need?

Panelist include:

Socially responsible investing. It sounds like an oxymoron. No, I’m not calling investing stupid! Quite the opposite. When we engage in socially responsible investing (SRI) it can be a very smart decision. So what is it? It’s a bit like replanting money trees in forests slated for clear cutting. It lets you make money while working to improving the economic, environmental, social, and corporate landscapes.

It happens to the best of us: poor credit. It isn’t hard to develop. One unpaid $100 mobile phone bill and 4 years later, and your credit history is poor enough to make a banker shut their laptop so fast it blows your hair back. No loans for you. No mortgage.  No line of credit. No further questions.
