“When we women do well, communities do well,” says Elizabeth Gutierrez, founder and CEO of Enterprising Latinas Inc., as she announces the launch of You Grow Girl, a series of workshops to teach Wimauma’s women how to better administer their budgets and see their businesses grow.
The first workshop will take place at the Women’s Opportunity Center in Wimauma, 18240 U.S. Highway 301 South -- right next to the Beth-El Mission -- on Wednesday, Oct. 19, from 4-5:30 p.m.
Enterprising Latinas is an organization dedicated to women’s comprehensive development, with hopes to widen their long-term impact in the Tampa Bay Area. During the workshops, women will develop action plans to stay financially fit, which will in turn help women maximize their money “one dollar at a time.”
You Grow Girl will encompass a total of four consecutive workshops, each 90 minutes long, every Wednesday from 4-5:30 p.m.
The workshop to be held on Oct. 19 is called “Let’s Get Personal” and will not only teach women how to develop a personal budget, but also help each participant develop one that works for their unique circumstance. Clear goals will be set, among other actions.
On Oct. 26, at “Give Credit Where Credit is Due” women will learn how to interpret credit reports and understand the point system. They will also be taught how to manage debt.
On Nov. 2, “Minding my Business” will teach women how personal finances are interrelated to business finances.
To conclude the workshops on Nov. 9, “Supersizing My Success” participants will establish a plan of action after learning about problems in financial administration, in both the personal and business sectors.
After completing the series of workshops, participants will have a business plan aimed at ensuring their own success.
Gutierrez also is planning various initiatives and projects designed to “separate women from poverty and help them attain skills that will lead them to success,” she says.
