Join us for this month's Networking Luncheon and get educated about a very important topic: finances! 

Our featured speaker will be member Gretchen Ricker of WealthWave.

Topic: How Money Works: Stop Being a Sucker

Financial illiteracy is the #1 economic crisis in the world, impacting more than 5 billion people across the planet. The few who know how money works take advantage of those who do not - the suckers. The mission of WealthWave is to break the cycle of endless debt, foolish spending, and financial cluelessness so you can stop being a sucker, start being a student, and take control of your financial future.


After spending nearly two decades in the Real Estate and publishing industry, Gretchen found that by affiliating herself with Transamerica Financial Advisors, Inc. and their associated marketing company World Financial Group, Inc., she can offer a broader spectrum of services to her client base. As an independent representative, she is privileged to help individuals and families who are often overlooked by the financial services industry.

Gretchen has arguably a “ridiculous”, (in her words,) number of real estate and securities licenses which keeps her in constant continuing education. She began her passion for financial education almost thirty years ago as a single mom struggling to keep the fridge filled and the house payment current. Those were thin times. Gretchen says she made pretty much every financial blunder possible. Realizing she was financially drowning and determined to not to take her children down with her, she began educating herself on the principals of how money works. With the help of family and a group called Crown Financial Ministries, she began to change the trajectory of her life and the future of her children.

Gretchen now has the opportunity to help others realize their dreams of erasing the financial glass ceiling that keep people from achieving their goals.
