Life Happens

The saying, “Man plans, God laughs,” couldn’t be truer. We can have the best laid plans and then WHAM.

It may seem that Real Housewife of Orange County star, Vicki Gunvalson, leads a charmed life as a celebrity, successful entrepreneur and mother, but getting there hasn’t been a smooth ride.

Vicki knows that the best way to plan for the future is to financially and emotionally prepare for ANYTHING. During this exclusive retreat Vicki, will show you how to be a financially savvy woman. By understanding money you’ll be ready for the unexpected, be that a divorce or death that comes out of left field, or a midlife career shift. Vicki will share her own stories and guide you in financial literacy during engaging workshops. You’ll also gain emotional strength through a variety of yoga and movement classes and simply being with a tribe of likeminded, kick-ass women at the beachside five-star Monarch Beach Resort.
