Our co-host, Rita Bocuzzi, whose parents and husband were born in Conversano Puglia, Italy has consciously kept a connection with her Italian roots and visits her family regularly.
Rita started her quest of financial empowerment two decades ago. As a child, she was always curious about what the difference was between those who were financially secure and those who were not. After she purchased her first real estate property in her twenties, her curiosity grew so she started to read more about financial success. She had lots of ideas, but no clear direction. As she was raising her children, her desire to create a legacy for her sons grew. She had a strong belief that in order to empower her kids and future generations to achieve financial independence, she needed to create a model to achieve those financial shifts.
Her desire is to change the world, one person, one family at a time. Empowering them to control their own economy before it controls them. At her local library, she listened to audio courses by world renowned financial and business authorities. She spent tens of thousands of dollars on Real Estate Investing strategies, and Wealth Building courses. Her goal was to surround herself with people that were financially successful and knew how to teach building financial wealth.
Several years ago, her world fell apart at the seams, when she was diagnosed with Cancer. Rita didn’t want other people to experience a life changing event, without being prepared. She learned hard lessons about the financial impact that illness puts on a family. After having experienced plummeting into debt, she bounced back with a direction for her mission and life purpose.
She became passionately committed to guiding women and men to achieve financial peace of mind. Her clients today experience transformation with authentic money conversations. Releasing money confusion, developing a positive relationship with money, expanding their financial knowledge and elevating their confidence regarding money and wealth.
She is a proven professional and motivational speaker, who takes away concerns that stand in the way of lasting financial success.
She creates amazing fun experiences around money, leading Wine, Women & Wealth events and Money 101 educational workshops. These are supportive communities that she launched in Southern California. Rita is CEO of Flourish Inc. and has partnered with Five Rings Financial. She educates through her heartfelt mission to elevate the way you think, plan, and interact around money.
