The Connect 757 is extremely excited to step into a new year. We were slated to return to in-person events but due to the spike in Covid-19 cases in Hampton Roads and across the country, we have temporarily returned to virtual events.

For the month of January, we are starting the year talking about building a healthy financial mindset! Dynamic Dialogues returns with the topic of “Gettin’ to the Money” as we talk taxes, refund checks, and wealth building. We have industry expert, Charese Chambers, Founder of Financial Fancy LLC as our guest speaker answering all of our money questions. Check out a snippet of Charese on the Melanated Spark Podcast discussing, “The Language of Business.
