Fabianne Keily – Developing Strong Female Leaders | CEO REAL WOMAN GLOBAL | Academy, Magazine, Events

“It was our great privilege and honour to have Cary speak at our Events ‘DIAMOND Nights’ to develop strong, female leaders on both the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. Cary’s ability to connect with and inspire the women, while giving them practical empowering tips on managing their finances was amazing, with ladies from both events giving her rave reviews. It is my great pleasure to recommend Cary (the Money Queen) to any organisation looking for an engaging, inspiring and empowering speaker.”  February 21, 2017


Melody R. Keeth – Executive Director, Serene Harbor, Inc.

“On October 9, 2015 at our 10th Annual Purses with a Purpose event, we had the good fortune to share the day with my favorite Keynote Speakers to date, Cary Carbonaro aka “The Money Queen”.  Cary’s story of struggle and triumph inspired us all. I cannot think of a finer example of what a woman can accomplish regardless of the odds than Ms. Carbonaro’s life story. Her ability to convey her story of courage and commitment while keeping it entertaining and enjoyable caused all 300 of us in the ballroom to fall in love with her and what she has accomplished.  What a women and what a story!!”
