Are you saving enough for retirement? As business owners, it’s hard to think about exiting the workforce when we’re building our businesses and have lots of people to pay–employees, landlords, suppliers…and the list goes on and on. But, are we ensuring that our personal finances are secure first? Most of us aren’t; we delay saving for the perfect time, but that perfect time never arrives.
We kick the can down the road and don’t pick it up until it’s too late. As entrepreneurs, saving for retirement is even more challenging without an employer-provided retirement account or company match. Save10, an initiative of the Women’s Foundation of AR, is a campaign to empower women to save for life and retirement. It is a specific call to action for women to commit to saving at least 10% for retirement.Join us (an operations and strategic communications consultant and a CPA) to discuss why we need to save at least 10% of our income for retirement, the types of accounts available to business owners, and how we as women leaders can empower others to invest in their future selves.

Elizabeth Eckford helped change the course of American history as a member of the Little Rock Nine, the nine African-American students who desegregated Little Rock Central High School in 1957. The situation at Central High resulted in the nation’s greatest constitutional crisis since the Civil War. Federal troops were sent to Little Rock to ensure that Eckford and other students could attend the school.
In 1958, she and the other members of the Little Rock Nine were awarded the prestigious Spurgeon Medal. In 1998, Little Rock Central High School became Little Rock Central National Historic Site. At a White House ceremony in 1999, Eckford, along with other members of the Little Rock Nine, received the Congressional Gold Medal, the nation’s highest civilian award. — This event is free and open to the public, but you will still need to reserve a seat.
