"Traveling around the state, people talk to me about how Dee Lee made a difference in their lives."
Perdue also encourages students getting ready to go to college to attend Thursday's conference.
"Don't fall into pitfalls when you get to college," Perdue advises. "Don't get into credit card debt. If you come out of college with loan debts and credit card debts, you may have to go into bankruptcy."
To register for Friday's conference, people may go to www.wvtreasury.com or call 304-341-0714.
Thursday will be the fifth time Charleston has hosted the "Women & Money" event since 2002.
Lee speaks on television and radio stations across the country and is a regular contributor to "Power Lunch" on CNBC-TV. She also offers financial advice every afternoon on WBZ, an AM radio station in Boston.
The "Women & Money" Conference is part of Money Smart Week -- a nationwide program from April 20 to 27 to help consumers manage their finances.
