Celebrated author and international money expert Kiana Danial will headline a business networking event on Thursday, July 18, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Great Neck House at 14 Arrandale Ave. Open to the community, Show Me the Money! Attracting Prosperity in 2019 and Beyond will spotlight financial empowerment for men and women of all ages and stages.
Known to followers and fans as the “Invest Diva,” Danial has frequently appeared on television and radio shows and in print media. Her latest book, Cryptocurrency Investing for Dummies, received great acclaim.
Bitcoin value is currently very high, and Facebook just announced plans to launch its own cryptocurrency. For many, cryptocurrency is an investment vehicle shrouded in mystery and high risk. Danial will share her abundant expertise and offer guidance while demystifying this investment, as well as Forex and other sophisticated financial investments.
Born and raised in Iran to Jewish parents, Danial was awarded a scholarship from the Japanese government to study electrical engineering in Japan, where she obtained two degrees in electrical engineering and conducted research on quantum physics. The classes were conducted in Japanese. Being the only woman and foreigner in her classes made her decide to dedicate her life to empowering minorities, especially women in male-dominated industries.
The financial expert speaks four languages fluently. Her husband, Matthew, is an Australian rocket scientist currently employed by Lockheed Martin. They recently welcomed their first child, daughter Jasmine.
Danial’s sister and other family members reside on the peninsula. Her cousin, Talin Eshaghoff Sarraf, an independent real estate professional and the mother of five in Great Neck, will introduce her at the event.
“Kiana is very knowledgeable on the world of finance,” noted Eshaghoff Sarraf. “This is a great opportunity to learn about the sometimes intimidating world of finance and investment. Kiana is an amazing role model for young people in the community, and
I am looking forward to introducing her on July 18.”
