Presentation Description:

 

This program is a 60 minute interaction workshop that is designed to explore behavioural finance, not financial planning.  Through the years we have come to understand that people’s relationship with money is far more about emotion than math and so we have embarked on this passion project to educate as many people as we can on how they can affect change in that relationship.   

Here are some of the highlights of what participants will experience in the workshop:

·         learn what has shaped their relationship with money

·         confront their current money mindset and learn steps to change it

·         understand they aren’t alone with debt

·         learn the key components of a true holistic financial plan

·         get a 90-day challenge to take control of their money
