"Don't Buy Shoes, Buy Buildings"
Nely Galán reminded the audience to invest in things that will make them money and not shoes and purses and things that just aren’t worth it. Nely spoke of the importance of venerating our elders and “learning from the wisdom of those who came before us,” as she put it. Speaking of her own journey of self-cultivation and reinvention. Nely went on to stress that “fear is only a feeling, not a fact” encouraging women to gird up their courage to go out and seek new economic opportunities.
