Cindy’s educational speech on what we can do to secure our retirement with generating our passive income was eye opening for many of us.

Nearly 20 members and guests of the NAPW Orange County, CA Local Chapter gathered on October 24th for a professional networking meeting at Intercap Lending in Irvine, CA. Attendees had the opportunity to network, get to know one another, and meet many of the newest Orange County, CA Local Chapter members. Attendees also picked up some expert tips on how to retire in style from Cindy Logan, Coach, Speaker, and Author with LOGAN Economic Achievement.

Chapter President Petra Petry welcomed the group of professional women to the meeting, which was held at Intercap Lending, the perfect venue to meet all the new members of the Chapter and connect with the women who are attending the Chapter meetings every month.

“We want to especially thank Cindy Logan, our Educational Speaker, and also Derek Beisner from Intercap Lending, which has provided us with an excellent space for our meeting and networking,” said Petra.

Derek took a few moments to talk to the group about his company and how in addition to the traditional financing, Intercap Lending also provides free mortgage consultation, teaches people how to become debt-free, helps with children’s college tuition planning, and with 15 years of experience as a ‘certified mortgage planner,’ helps you achieve your financial goals.

The guest speaker then took the floor and spoke to the audience about an important topic on everyone’s mind: retirement.

“Cindy’s educational speech on what we can do to secure our retirement with generating our passive income was eye opening for many of us,” said Petra.

Members and guests then each had the opportunity to introduce themselves. After introductions, everyone was able to connect and network. The meeting ended with a door prize drawing. The lucky winner of a photo shoot by Elena Bessi, the Italian photographer in Orange County, was Nichole Morante. Nichole will have the possibility to schedule a holiday, family, or business photo shoot with the photographer who helps families preserve and remember all the great moments they live through.
