Come hear the latest on new crowdfunding options as well as how to leverage licensing and strategic partnerships so you, too, can build, grow and keep your company.   More about Sharon: When it comes to being a leader among women you'll be hard pressed to find a more involved and caring woman than Sharon Lechter. Her passion for helping educate people on financial matters led her from her days as CEO and co-author of Rich Dad Poor Dad all the way to her role as a Presidential Advisor, with lots of stories along the way. Sharon Lechter is an entrepreneur, author, philanthropist, international speaker, licensed CPA, Chartered Global Management Accountant and, most importantly a mother and grandmother.

Regarded as a global expert on financial literacy, Sharon has served as a national spokeswoman and Presidential Advisor on the topic. In 1997 Sharon co-authored the international bestseller Rich Dad Poor Dad, along with 14 other books in the Rich Dad series. Over 10 years as CEO she led the Rich Dad Company and brand into an international powerhouse. In 2008 she was asked by the Napoleon Hill Foundation to help re-energize the powerful teachings of Napoleon Hill just as the international economy was faltering. She has released three bestselling books in cooperation with the Foundation, including Think and Grow Rich-Three Feet from Gold, Outwitting the Devil and her latest project, Think and Grow Rich for Women, released in June of 2014. Sharon has also released Save Wisely, Spend Happily, in cooperation with the American Institute of CPAs.
