      Keynote - July 25th, 2013

      Financial Game Changers - that will help you win the money game and grow your assets
      By Money Magician, Dr. Mary Ann Campbell, CFP

      Want more time for family and hobbies?  Would you like more savings and the ability to improve your cash flow? You’ll learn tips and tricks on financial game changers that will help you save, protect, and control your money.  You’ll learn to play the game that allows you to produce more of what you need and want with the money you already have. 

      Dr. Mary Ann Campbell, CFP®, was selected by Money Magazine as one of the 200 best Certified Financial Planning practitioners in America.  She received a Presidential appointment to Chair the National Women’s Business Council, and Arkansas Business chose her as one of the top 100 women in Arkansas. 

      Mary Ann’s favorite 4-letter word after L-O-V-E is S-A-L-E.   She experienced her own game changer when she stood in front of her closet and realized it was full of tops without matching bottoms and vice versa because of her thrill of bargain shopping over need.  By changing her awareness, Mary Ann was able to save for her goals and have room in her closet for matching outfits she could actually wear.  Of course, her clothes still continue to mysteriously shrink.

      Mary Ann Campbell is a money educator and a Certified Financial Planner (CFP). Money Magazine selected Mary Ann as one of America’s top 200 CFPs. She has taught junior high, high school, college students, and employees at corporations the magic of money. Mary Ann gives credit to the teachers she has had with her success. Teachers have had a profound effect on her, and their influence fuels her dedication to what she does everyday.
