Featured Speakers at the Women’s Luncheon include Jessie Barth speaking on “The Key to a GOOD life.” Jessie is from Perry, NY and enjoys exploring the connection between health, harmony, and vocabulary as an author, teacher, and musician. She loves to study the roots of words and recently taught a class at Silver Lake entitled How to Sentence Yourself to a Good Life based on her US trade-marked Single-Speak System of thinking. Barth taught a similar course entitled How to Build a Million Dollar Vocabulary in New York City at The Learning Annex.

Attendees will also hear from Tom Sylvester, originally from Wyoming County and currently from Rochester, NY. He will speak on the topic, “What is an entrepreneur?” Tom is a husband, father, serial entrepreneur and business strategist. After college, Tom set a goal to achieve financial freedom by 35. He started by building a real estate investment company, followed by opening a wine and liquor store. These days, Tom (along with his wife Ariana) spend the majority of their time helping entrepreneurs with families, start and scale their businesses to enable them to achieve financial freedom as well.
