Dear Women of Business,
I missed you all and am looking forward to interacting on a more regular basis with you.  In my time away, its been all over the news that women are being financially and physically abused. Many are afraid to leave some of their circumstances due to a lack of financial independence.

Too many women in the Caribbean don't have access to financial education and support. Women of Business has decided to share some financial advice given to us by some of our Fabulous Females.  We hope that you are encouraged to keep keeping on. #empowerment #domesticabuseisnotok #keepyourmoneyhoney #earnyourmoneyhoney #womenofbusiness
