Build your wealth resilience and learn from Laura Southall's decades of experience in finance, education, and real estate investing.
Laura Southall is a financial advisor in Kingston, Ontario, and has worked in the education field. As a child, she ran multiple small businesses and spent her free time at the public library reading books about money. At the age of 15, she started saving for a down payment on a rental property.
She bought her first house at the age of 23 and began renting out the basement to cover the mortgage. Over the next 23 years, she bought, sold, renovated, and rented many properties. The book, “Rental Properties for Canadian Women” tells her journey, the mistakes she has made, and the strategies she has adopted.

"Trying to understand what to do with your money can seem like a mystery. If you educate yourself, you can make the right decisions for yourself and your family. You can significantly alter your future by understanding the steps you need to take. I want to empower you." Laura
Do you need answers to any of the following questions?
• What is a TFSA and how do I use one?
• Are RRSPs really a good idea?
• Saving for retirement seems so overwhelming. How much should I be saving?
• What is the best investment option for me? GICs? Mutual Funds? My bank account?
• I want my children to go to university. How much will that cost? What is the best way to save for that?
Laura's intent is to demystify finance while empowering participants to take steps toward securing their own financial future. Engagement is key, and questions are both welcomed and encouraged.
