The Smart Women Smart Money conference has nailed down Elizabeth Smart to be the keynote speaker this year.

Her story is one of pure strength.
She is the Utah woman who was kidnapped from her home in 2002 at the age of 14. She was held for months, and eventually the homeless street preacher who abducted her was sentenced to life in prison.
Elizabeth has a far different life now.  In fact, she just married her boyfriend of one year in Hawaii last week.
Elizabeth will tell her story in Boise and talk about overcoming obstacles.

You can see her and attend the conference for free.

Registration doesn't open until September, but keep this date and place in mind:

                       The Smart Women Smart Money Conference 
                                                Oct. 26th, 2012
                                        Boise Centre on the Grove
