Rich Dad Poor Dad Co-Author to Speak in London on 26th May

“Failings of our education system and financial services industry the root cause of financial illiteracy”

Dublin , Ireland, May 17, 2012 - “Failings of our education system and financial services industry the root cause of financial illiteracy”, says Rich Dad Poor Dad best-selling co-author and speaker Sharon Lechter.

Commenting on the lack of financial literacy, Sharon Lechter said: “We all have to deal with money issues throughout our lives. Unfortunately, the traditional education system fails to equip us with the right mindset, knowledge and skills we need to succeed at managing our own money. It takes a company like Horizon Speakers & Seminars to source and promote speakers like myself to provide the necessary education that the established education and financial services industry largely fails at.”

Commenting further, Lechter says: “No matter who you are, where you live or what your circumstances; whether you are an employee, a housewife, an entrepreneur or business person, you and your family can enrich your lives and secure your financial well-being by developing adequate financial literacy.” says Sharon Lechter.

A best-selling author, seasoned entrepreneur/business woman and Certified Public Accountant, Sharon will be sharing her insights and teachings on personal success and financial literacy at a unique 1-day event titled Think, Act & Grow Rich in London 26th May and Dublin 27th May 2012.

A rare female voice in the world of finance and public speaking her numerous accolades include being an international best-selling co-author of 15 books in the Rich Dad, Poor Dad series. In 2008, Lechter was appointed to the President's Advisory Council on Financial Literacy. She is also an Emissary of the Napoleon Hill foundation and CEO of Pay Your Family First.

Commenting further, Lechter said:”Whether it’s simply paying the bills or raising capital for some other personal or business investment, everyone is faced with financial decisions to make. Unfortunately, most people haven’t had the education to allow them to develop their financial IQ to such a level as to ensure their financial well-being”

Sharon’s training provides unique insights and specific steps to boost people’s levels of personal success, their financial IQ and their bank balance! “The 1-Day talk I will be giving with Horizon Speakers & Seminars will focus on providing people with the knowledge, skills and tools people need to ultimately think, act and grow rich,” says Sharon.

Keelan Cunningham, CEO of Horizon Speakers and Seminars (the organisers), commented on the upcoming event with Sharon saying: “We are delighted to host such a world-class authority in the field of personal success and personal finance in both Dublin and London at the end of May. At a time where money issues and finances are centre stage in every household we feel this is a great opportunity for people in both Ireland and the UK to learn from a genuine world-authority on personal success and financial well-being”

“This seminar will be particularly of use to professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs, investors and anyone in general who’d like to improve their financial situation. Everyone can benefit from becoming better at managing their mind, their money and their finances,” said Keelan Cunningham.

Consumer-Driven Deal site, SoRewarding Connects Merchants with Revenue Retention, Customers and Community

SoRewarding merchant members keep 75 percent of deal revenue for life

Denver, Colorado, May 17, 2012 - Denver-based SoRewarding, a new social network that lets consumers create and request their own deals from area businesses, is reinventing the way group buy deal sites work with merchant partners. In the time it takes to set up a merchant profile page on, businesses can begin accepting deals requested by their customers…and keeping 75 percent of the profits.

SoRewarding doesn’t impose any pre-negotiated terms or restrictions on deals; instead it allows merchants the freedom to directly accept, reject or counter any deal a customer requests. Merchants can also create and publish custom deals they would like to offer, at any time, in order to best suit their business, and their customer’s needs. And, SoRewarding donates five percent of every deal buy to one of more than a dozen local non-profit partners that each consumer can select to support.

SoRewarding merchant partners benefit from the ability to:

Create and publish deals at their point of need.
* No more time spent working with sales representatives from a thousand different deal companies. Merchants can create customized deals that benefit their business and customers the most.

Receive deal requests automatically.
* Requests from paying customers are sent directly and immediately to the business which can then accept, reject, or counter-offer with the click of a button from a mobile device or at

Enjoy new customers.
* SoRewarding connects businesses with local customers, and provides a forum for direct social networking; building loyalty and keeping them coming back again and again.

Get paid.
* Once a merchant page is created at SoRewarding, there are no other upfront conditions, contracts or terms to begin offering and accepting deals. On the day a deal runs, buyers purchase the deal directly and the merchant receives payment just a few days later.

Connect with the community.
* Each time a deal is purchased, SoRewarding donates to a local non-profit. The business offering the deal will receive recognition for making these donations possible and gain exposure among the supporters of different charity organizations and the community as a whole.

SoRewarding is currently an invitation-only network. Consumers, merchants and non-profits interested in joining should visit to request an invitation.

About SoRewarding
SoRewarding is your social marketplace for creating offers in your community while supporting the causes you love. SoRewarding enables consumers to use the power of group buying to get discounts on the things they actually want, without being inundated with offers they don’t need.
