A SHOT CALLER is someone who understands the power of her financial decisions. She understands that when she is truly empowered she will not only positively impact herself and her family but also her community. Like the butterfly effect in chaos theory, a small change in one state can have a large, nonlinear change on a global scale. A SHOT CALLER has choices and a voice.
