What Is the Women Can Money Summit?

Money talk can be uncomfortable for some and even a taboo for others. I’m ready to change that.

The Women Can Money Summit is my way of  breaking down some of the barriers around money for women.  It is a place where Canadian women can learn about all things money from other Canadian women. And this year’s topic is all about empowering women with their investments.

There are some amazingly smart Canadian women when it comes to money and personal finance.  So I thought why not bring together a bunch of financial voices to get the conversation started?

This is where you come in.

Together we can create a safe space for women to learn about money while increasing their financial literacy. Hopefully it sparks more money conversations  around the country.

The Women Can Money Summit is a place that is dedicated to Canadian-specific content for women from women. No 401k talk or mansplaining here.

SUMMIT DATES: MAY 10 - 12, 2023

As much or as little as you are comfortable with.  Because speakers receive a 50% affiliate commission, the more you promote, the more you stand to make off of registrations when your audience uses your link to register.

Yes, there is.  Speakers receive a 50% affiliate commission on all paid registrations. Sign up details will be shared with speakers once they are available.

Yes there will be an opportunity at the end of the interview for you to share a free opportunity with attendees. There will also be links to your freebie and website under your video on the website. There is however no advertising of paid programs during the summit.

There is no speaker fee for this event. But I have tried to streamline everything as much as possible so that the work required on your part is not extraneous. You will also earn a 50% affiliate commission and there is no cap on the amount you can earn with that.

Speakers receive a 50% affiliate commission on all paid registrations.

  • The best way to leverage this opportunity is to have an opt-in that aligns with what you will be speaking about. Once attendees connect with you they can join your email list. From there, it’s up to you to decide how to maximize the opportunity.
  • You can also have the double benefit of having your audience use your affiliate link to register. You will receive a 50% affiliate commission for all attendees who use your link to sign up.

Benefits of Contributing a Paid Product to the VIP All Access Pass

As a speaker you have the option to contribute a paid product to the VIP All Access Pass.  Pass holders will receive your product as part of the VIP All Access Pass when they decide to purchase it.

By contributing a paid product you help to increase the value of the VIP All Access Pass and therefore help justify the purchase for attendees.

This makes the summit and VIP All Access Pass easier for you to promote. Your audience already knows how awesome you are, why wouldn’t they want to jump on something you promote as worthwhile?

Having your product as part of the VIP All Access Pass also gives you increased exposure as it will be featured to all attendees as they are provided an option to buy the pass.

The affiliate commission you can earn from the sale of the VIP All Access Pass will more than make up for your contribution.

If you would like to discuss contributing to the VIP All Access Pass just email me at hello@womencanmoney.com and we can confirm the specifics.

I’m Maria, mom, teacher, and personal finance blogger at Handful of Thoughts and host of the Women Can Money Virtual Summit.

I’m a total money nerd but realize that not everyone wants to talk about it all the time. I started my blog as an outlet to share thoughts, ideas and lessons with other moms.

I’ve attended and participated in a few virtual summits. And I’ve always been disappointed with the female representation even though there are some amazing voices in the personal finance space.

Well, that changes now.
