Lake Norman Financial Group, Inc. is a fantastic group of female financial advisers in the Lake Norman area dedicated to helping their clients with financial management and planning. More than that, these ladies go above and beyond – taking the time to really listen and getting to know their clients needs and wants.
I was out last evening at Lake Norman Financial in Cornelius, NC for their Top 10 Thursdays event; one that they host monthly as a way to network and connect with their clients. The topic is always “Top 10” – 10 ways to save more, 10 ways to plan for retirement, 10 ways to find the house you want, 10 ways to dream big, etc.
Last night, I had the opportunity to co-host the event and bring “Top 10 Ways in Enjoy the Holidays without Destroying You Waistline” to the table. Along with presentation material, I made 3 appetizers to sample as a means to share with attendees that it is really not hard to make healthy choices while enjoying the holidays. All 3 recipes were a huge hit!! In fact, I am pretty sure I could have made 3x the amount of these and they still would have disappeared.
Heading to a party, tailgate, girls night out, baby shower, church event this weekend?? Try these!
