Nely's session at this year's BizCon is titled: HOW TO BECOME SELF MADE AND LIVE A RICH LIFE IN EVERY WAY. Because in spite of tumultuous times, we are in the middle of a watershed moment; there is no true empowerment until we have our own money, until we become self-reliant and cultivate a self-made mindset. Becoming Self Made is an intrapreneurial or entrepreneurial journey that comes from valuing total economic independence and personal responsibility, all crucial to our self-esteem and personal power. Whether you run your own business or work for others, I want to teach you how to cultivate a self-made mindset and learn about all the opportunities that exist today, to become self-made by making money while you sleep. For those of you from traditional cultures, immigrants, and/or are old school like me, I want you to know you can achieve this and keep your values, culture, and/or religion intact. My goal is to help you become “rich” in every way (love, family, community, spirit and abundance), in order to have a clear intention for your MISSION and your MONEY.
