The Principal Financial Group provides financial products to business and individuals, but the company also provides a section on its company website dedicated to women in business. As part of the Principal Financial Group’s dedication to helping women succeed as business owners, the company offers 10 free teleclasses each year called The Principal Women in Business Teleclass Series.
The teleclasses are held via telephone at 12:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on the dates scheduled and last one hour with speakers discussing topics of particular interest to women in business. Audio and notes of each teleclass can be found on The Principal Financial Group’s women in business website after each class. Typically, the speaker will be a well-known, successful businesswoman. Previous speakers have included Suzy Welch and Katrina Markoff of Vosges-Haut Chocolat.
The Principal Financial Group announced this week that Mary Cantando will present the first teleclass of 2008 on February 26th. Her teleclass is called “The Five Secrets of Millionaire Women Business Owners,” and participants will hear Mary’s advice and tips culled from women business owners who have grown their businesses into multi-million dollar companies.
Mary Cantando is an author and public speaker. She has contributed to The Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur Magazine and Fast Company magazine. She has worked as an entrepreneurial executive since 1989. Throughout her career, Mary has closed sales of more than $50 million. Today, she works with businesses to help define new revenue opportunities. Mary is a member of the advisory board of Enterprising Women magazine and the national Board of the Women Presidents’ Organization.
