Overview of Workshops

All workshops include instruction by a licensed financial advisor, workbook and Q&A session. All attendees may schedule a FREE 1-on-1 financial coaching session with an advisor at the conclusion of the workshop series.

Part 1: Unlock Your Financial Blocks

Much of our success (or struggles) with money is determined by what we THINK about money. In Unlock Your Financial Blocks people will discover what is contributing to overspending and holding them back from new financial milestones.

Part 2: Build A Plan That Fits Your Life

As life changes, your plan needs to change. In this workshop, people learn the 5 key pieces of a strong financial plan. They evaluate their current plan and learn how to take simple steps to take control and have confidence with money.

Part 3: Work Your Budget

Budgeting can be a buzz-word, but it’s important. The difference between this workshop and many other budgeting programs is that it’s simple to DO (key word). Everyone is different so your budget is going to be different. Learn how to choose a method and how to get started today!

Part 4: Invest in Your Future

Investing is NOT complicated despite what some might lead you to believe. In this workshop people learn about the 3D’s, common investment types and how to begin investing in their future. Close to retirement? No problem, learn how to go from investing to build to investing to live.
