Every month, Livingston’s B.I.G. group, a woman’s networking and empowerment group, meets in town where members and guests mingle, network, learn and are mutually inspired.

Last month, at Livingston’s B.I.G. meeting, family law attorney Karolina Dehnhard of Budd Larner discussed, “A Smart Woman Knows How to Protect Her Ass(ets),” where she shared her personal life experiences and why she is so passionate about helping women protect their hard earned financial assets.

“Women entrepreneurs work hard, each and every day, to earn money for their businesses,” said Dehnhard. “Understanding your financial rights and when and how your assets may be at risk--even when life throws you a curve—is essential to maintaining your business’ success.”

In this thought-provoking presentation, Dehnhard shared:

  • Which of your financial assets are automatically protected by New Jersey law and which you may need to actively protect.
  • Whether or not you should have joint or solo assets for your business.
  • Tax considerations for your business.
  • Whether your family will be financially protected by your business assets even when unexpected circumstances occur.
  • How the law will value your assets; the difference between passive assets and active assets.
  • How to be best prepared financially for wherever life takes you.

Dehnhard is an associate at the law firm of Budd Larner. She was admitted to the New Jersey Bar and U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey in 2009. She received her Juris Doctorate, magna cum laude, from New York Law School in 2009.

The month before, Geeta Trikha Davies discussed, "The Lakshmi Principals--Emotions and Money: What Do Your Emotions Have to Do with the Money You are Destined to Make?”

In her discussion, Davies said that we each have specific emotions or emotional patterns attached to money that were imprinted on us before we even had a choice to have a checking account.

She said, “Whether you personally recognize this or not, today those emotions impact every financial decision you face. They are responsible for how you make money, spend money, and keep money, or in my case it seemed to go out the door faster than it came in.”

“Amazingly, those feelings are not just fleeting reactions; they actually influence how much money you'll make and keep throughout your life,” she added.

Throughout her discussion, Davies helped attendees recognize their emotions behind money and its impact on their “money.”  She also helped them discover healthier ways to respond to those feelings. 

Davies is a TRUE Abundance Creator, Speaker, and Mentor. To Davies, true abundance is much more than promotions, raises, being married, providing for family, and making money. With a holistic perspective, her signature talk "The Lakshmi Principals" gives insight into the seven essential keys to creating a Life of TRUE Abundance. She integrates her corporate experience with holistic training to help individuals discover and define a personalized blue print to design the life, the money, the relationships, the health, and the career they desire through the lens of abundance.


Founded in Bernardsville, B.I.G, a rapidly-growing organization, offers more than 50 local community meetings each month across five states and ongoing regional networking events, as well as an interactive and informative website.

Members of the groups generally join a chapter when they have questions in their lives about whether they have a great business idea that they just never acted on; if they desire to grow an established business and build relationships with smart, savvy women in the community; and/or if they are ready to start making an income and growing their network. Attendance at any first meeting is free.

According to the B.I.G. website, the Ideal B.I.G. member is the entrepreneurial woman who wishes to explore her professional passion; have a balanced and more fulfilled life; wants a proven channel to make her own money, on her own terms; is looking for a positive and supportive environment to brainstorm and build upon her professional ideas; desires business tools to begin building a successful and viable business; wants access to other like-minded entrepreneurial women, with shared goals in communities throughout the B.I.G. network; desires valuable business information from respected industry experts via B.I.G.’s ongoing monthly meetings and special events; and wants access to ongoing networking opportunities (through monthly meetings and special events) that yield both personal and professional positive relationships.

Getting a Handle on Thanksgiving

This year, on our National Day of Thanks, I would like to express my gratitude for having hands.

We typically don’t thank our body parts because they seldom leave us.  Most of us have not experienced unfortunate accidents or suffered the horrible consequences of war; tragic events  which might cause us to lose a limb.  

Most of us take our fingers and hands and elbows ...

My Epic Beauty Fails

One day as I was looking around a high-end cosmetics store for a new lipstick, a “beauty expert” approached me and said that I was so stunning I should forget the lipstick, and get a lip plumper instead. At first I wondered why I needed a lip plumper if I was already so stunning. But then I thought, “Now here is someone wearing a badge that says, ‘beauty expert,’ so ...
