Our first guest Carmen Johnson Katie Founder/CEO will discuss Financial Literacy Over a decade ago Carmen R. Johnson, President and CEO of the Katie Able Foundation, wrote these famous words: "Do something to justify your existence. Together we can create the future.” With these words in mind, Ms. Johnson decided to pursue her mission of empowerment through financial freedom by first creating her for-profit business Able Estate & Co., and now with the establishment of Katie Able Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit to commemorate her grandmother, for whom the Foundation is named. With her experience working in Corporate America and armed with her background in accounting, Ms. Johnson has a wealth of experience in credit counseling, debt elimination and debt relief, and thus has become an expert in debt negotiation and creating wealth.
