    Kelly Le Good Morning Ladies! "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes"-Ben Franklin Even though Franklin had it right, tax free investments are out there, and you don't have to be a member of Wall Street Elite to access them. In fact, they should be part of your investing strategy, because at the end of the day, tools like tax-advantaged investments are one of the few things you can directly control. It's pretty hard to avoid paying taxes on your paycheck. But there are all kinds of way to pick up money that the Internal Revenue Service can't touch. Come and join me on the financial Seminar this Saturday 4/30 at 5:45Pm at Tyson Corner address 8229 boone blv suite 638, Vienna VA 22182. Learn the investments strategy you need to create wealth, protect assets and minimize taxes. Please email me Kelly.le.pfa@gmail.com or text 240-274-7139 me if you're interested in coming so I can keep head counts. As of now we are expecting around 100 people. Best, Kelly
