Laya Gavin with Sharon Lechter at CEOSpace Conference


I recently had the great privilege and honor of spending time with Sharon Lechter author, speaker, philanthropist, business woman, CPA and just a very nice woman to sit down and have a real conversation with.  If you have been in the business world and paying attention over the last couple of decades, you probably recognize Sharon’s name from her groundbreaking work in bringing the Rich Dad, Poor Dad series of books and games to the marketplace and teaching us the elements of the “Cashflow Quadrant” along with Robert Kiyosaki.  Now, Sharon is on a mission that is near and dear to my heart, and that is educating and empowering women around the subject of finances.  Her latest book is called, Think & Grow Rich for Women, Using Your Power to Create Success and Significance.

In listening to her share her passion about the importance of women taking ownership of their financial futures, I was encouraged to know that I am on the right path in my journey as well.  You know the feeling when you have a dream that won’t let you sleep at night, and then the next day you cross paths with someone and they say something out of the blue that provides confirmation of what you were thinking?  Well that’s how my time with Sharon was.  I told her that I was publishing a book, 10 Smart Money Moves, How to Master Your Money & Make A Difference.   Her immediate reply was “if you don’t master your money, it WILL master you!”

And I am so pleased to say that since my meeting with Sharon, my book is now available for purchase online at:

The universe saw fit for us to cross paths at this unique moment in time.  For all of the dreamers out there like me, take note, there is an appointed time and place already designated for you to cross paths with someone whose words can give you confirmation in your spirit and speak life back into your dream.

Not only did we get to discuss the shared vision of increased financial literacy, but she also took the time to give me guidance.  CEOSpace International, is an organization that thrives on a community of shared ideas, networking and business experts bringing their resources to the table to help the community of entrepreneurs.  This is a special place that believes in cooperation not competition among its membership, and all through the hallways you hear the phrase “brain tithe”, referring to giving back a portion of what you have been blessed with.  And that is what Sharon did for me.  In our conversation she gave me tips on how to move my business forward, on how to improve my speaking skills and where to look for more information about my kraft.  Another example through leadership that in order to move forward, you must constantly continue to be a student of your kraft.  You have to keep learning.  You have to keep growing.  You have to keep giving.

Sharon Lechter, thank you!

Be Blessed!
