WIPN Iowa | Be Fearless

October 10 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm CDT


Join the WIPN Iowa chapter for an inspiring event led by Linda Duessel, CFA, CPA, CFP®. 

Location: Microsoft Teams

Date: Tuesday, October 10, 2023

Time: 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Linda will share her journey from childhood in a modest house of a working-class family to one of the senior-most women at an S&P 500 firm in a male-dominated industry. She will share vivid memories and lessons learned along the way, in an effort to inspire women on their own path to success.

  • If you set your mind on your goal, it doesn’t matter where you start
  • Women are great!
  • Dive in, make mistakes, ask the “stupid” questions
  • When your bosses discuss who is their hardest working employee, make sure it’s you
  • Don’t complain, offer solutions
  • If it doesn’t kill you, it will make you stronger
  • Find somebody to love
  • If you love what you do, you will excel
  • It’s not about women vs. men
