Women's financial conference in Corning

CORNING, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - The fourth annual Southern Tier Women's Financial Conference is this weekend.

Speakers at the event say the for-women-by-women-conference will improve their minds, bodies, and checkbooks. 

Advice is given on budgeting, the correlation between financial health and physical health, how to be an informed car buyer, the importance of improving your credit score and simply, how to feng shui your finances. 

What inspired one of the event organizers, Amy Irvine - who owns a wealth planning business, was seeing female clients afraid of handling financial affairs. 

"We really just want to make sure that women feel empowered about money because that also gives you a sense of freedom," Irvine, the owner of Irvine Wealth Planning Strategies said. "When you feel empowered by anything, but especially money, life looks a little bit different."

About 75 women have bought tickets so far which means the space is almost at capacity, so it's recommended to buy your own tickets ahead of time to avoid being turned down at the door. 

It's this Saturday, November 4 at Corning Community College in the triangle lounge from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
