One Woman’s Success Story
Gabriela Gutierrez shared the amazing story of her personal and business success in Costa Rica.
It was a very transparent and honest tale that was relatable on so many levels. For women trying to navigate life’s many sharp turns, such as divorce or a financial plan for retirement, Gabriela’s presentation is a must-see.
Gabriela’s presentation will be available publicly through the end of June. Next month it will move over to our members-only section.
A note to all members: we will be contacting you before the end of the month with your login details.
Tax Talk: PWNCR’s Expert Panel
Some big, confusing, and downright scary changes to Costa Rica’s tax laws go into effect in July!
To help our network prepare, PWNCR hosted an expert panel featuring:
- Emy Solis, Tax Accounting
- Denis Bermudez, Asesorias DB
- Alexa and Guiselle, Consilium Group
The Q&A session was a major hit with attendees who couldn’t wait to get their burning tax questions answered!
Unfortunately, the session had to be cut short due to time constraints (and the audience was none too happy!).
The good news is: Tax Talk Part Two is on the way! We will host a second edition of our Tax Reform Q&A session at the next meeting on July 13. Make sure you register for the July meeting so you do not miss this valuable opportunity!
Just like Gabriela’s talk, the Tax Talk video will become an exclusive benefit for members come July.
