The 3 Power Steps to Financial Success
January 27, 2010; 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
Do you want to learn more about personal finance but fell too busy to do so?
Then this is the workshop for you!
Based on the books On My Own Two Feet: A Modern Girl's Guide to Personal Finance and Get Financially Naked: How to Talk Money with Your Honey, this workshop will highlight the three power steps to financial success: Save, Invest and Protect!
Specifically you will learn:
1. How to balance your desire to live well today with the need to save and invest for tomorrow. Yes, you CAN do both. In this workshop you will learn clear, concise guidelines about how much to target saving for the future. You will also learn how to find the money to save if you feel like there’s just nothing left at the end of the day!
2. A powerful, keep-it-simple investment plan that historically has beaten most professionals. While “investing” can seem complicated – there is an easier way. Welcome to the world of low cost index funds and target date retirement funds. This workshop will teach you the most important questions to ask when thinking about investing, and what to do when you have the answers.
3. Protecting yourself when you couple up with that someone special.
Time and again money is cited as the #1 cause of fights in marriage and the #1 cause of divorce. This workshop will lay out a straightforward game plan for making sure your relationship is as financially compatible as it is emotionally and physically compatible.
While understanding the basics of personal finance 101 is important for both genders, it is extra important for ladies because statistically speaking they’re the ones left holding the bag at the end of the day. Literally. 80% of men die married, while 80% of women die single. Unfortunately, the bag that women are left holding isn’t a terribly pretty one. Today, for 2/3rds of women over the age of 65 meager Social Security payments are their primary source of income. It doesn’t have to be this way. Learning – and acting – on a few simple steps while you are in your 20s, 30s, and 40s can put you on the path to financial nirvana!
