Life Happens

The saying, “Man plans, God laughs,” couldn’t be truer. We can have the best laid plans and then WHAM.

It may seem that Real Housewife of Orange County star, Vicki Gunvalson, leads a charmed life as a celebrity, successful entrepreneur and mother, but getting there hasn’t been a smooth ride.

Vicki knows that the best way to plan for the future is to financially and emotionally prepare for ANYTHING. During this exclusive retreat Vicki, will show you how to be a financially savvy woman. By understanding money you’ll be ready for the unexpected, be that a divorce or death that comes out of left field, or a midlife career shift. Vicki will share her own stories and guide you in financial literacy during engaging workshops. You’ll also gain emotional strength through a variety of yoga and movement classes and simply being with a tribe of likeminded, kick-ass women at the beachside five-star Monarch Beach Resort.

The “OG of the OC,” Vicki Gunvalson has appeared on The Real Housewives of Orange County since the beginning. As a successful entrepreneur, reality star, mother and grandmother, she has redefined what is means to be a powerful modern woman. Her ability to evolve but stay true to her roots as life has progressed has led her to become America’s most loved reality star as she has continually invited us into her home and hearts for the last 12 seasons of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Born in 1962 in a small Northwest suburb of Chicago, Vicki is one of 5 children. Her father owned a large construction company and her mother was a stay at home mom who cooked every night for the family, babysitters were a rarity and she always looked impeccable. Family was their priority and to this day Vicki carries those same core values.
