About our Speaker:

Aprille Trupiano

For 15 years, Aprille has  worked with business owners around the globe - focusing in the US particularly in the financial services, mortgages, and insurance (Life Insurance, P&C Insurance, Health Insurance) - to blow the lid off their business as their Executive Coach for Financial Services, Executive Coach Insurance Agents, Executive Coach Loan Officers, Executive Coach Banking, Executive Coach Financial Advisors & Financial Planners.

As an Executive Coach for Financial Services, Executive Coach Financial Advisors & Financial Planners, Executive Coach Loan Officers, Executive Coach Insurance Agents, Executive Coach Banking, I teach them to spend more time with family, play more and STILL make money at the office - so they can finally have it all.

After using my proven proprietary systems, clients say they make more money than ever before (without working harder) and have more fun doing it! They spend more time doing what they truly love to do - both in their business and in their lives outside the business.
 In Dec 2018, Aprille became An Ambassador at Large serving the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.

WIFS Community Outreach Update

Our Blessing Bags donation to Grace & Peace Women’s Winter Shelter was a huge success. What a special way to kick-off our 2020! Thank you WIFS St. Louis Chapter for your donations! As a group, we filled 50 Blessing Bags with over 15 items per bag. This included snacks, socks, hairbands, self-care products and hand-written letters of encouragement from our current WIFS members who attended the January luncheon to the women who stay at the shelter during the winter months. When delivered, the shelter staff was overwhelmed by our kindness. Let’s keep the momentum of generosity going. If you would like to donate to the  Grace and Peace Women’s Winter Shelter, or would like more information on how to can get involved, please visit their website:  

Special thanks to Home Care Assistance, Mutual of Omaha, BDO USA, LLP, The Estate Planner LLC, Powers Insurance & Risk Management and Thrivent Financial for starting our Action Team and encouraging us to Live Generously!
