Welcome to The ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter

Laura Chiesman

Stop and Step Away from the Business!

Leaders, whether they are business owners, professionals, volunteers, heads of families, or all of the above, tend to take on multiple areas of responsibility, often resulting in perpetual activity and seemingly never-ending lists of tasks. There’s a strong gravitational pull towards “busy-ness,” and it takes planning and courage to break out of that orbit.  Results and satisfaction improve when we periodically step away from working in the business, and take some valuable time to work on the business! 

Laura Chiesman is president and owner of the Satellite Beach-based wealth management firm, FirstWave Financial. Providing financial strategies and solutions to successful families and businesses for over 23 years, FirstWave Financial has a strong tradition of delivering excellent service and innovation to their clients and community. Laura’s credentials include:  CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional,  Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® and Florida Insurance License 2-15.

Raised in Indialantic, Laura is a graduate of Melbourne High School and earned a B.S. degree in finance from the University of Central Florida. She is actively involved in organizations that support the growth and success of women in business, including the Women President’s Organization, American Business Women’s Association Oceanside Charter Chapter and the League of Extraordinary Women. Laura also serves on the governing and guild boards for Genesis House, which provide support and transitional shelter for homeless women and their children.

Please join us Tuesday, October 23rd to explore strategies and resources to take your hard work to the next level, and optimize your results!
