A personal finance workshop in two parts

Sundays, April 21 + 28, 2019 at 3-6pm

The two-part, six hour workshop is $100 and space is limited to only 20 people so register soon! You can secure your spot by paying for the class via PayPal (pickense@gmail.com.) If you don’t have or really dislike PayPal, email me and we’ll figure out another way!

Capitalism got you down? Does money make you panic? Do you avoid bills or hide mail? Does the phrase ‘Roth IRA’ confound you? Are you convinced everybody learned how to be an adult with money except you? Time to do something different. Join me for a judgment-free environment to confront feelings and fears while gaining some real practical personal finance skills.

In Part 1, we will dive into your emotional experience of money and personal finance. You will examine your family’s financial legacy and identify its impact on your present. Examining fear, shame, and guilt, we will use the power of a group experience to disrupt emotional cycles trapping you in money anxieties. You will learn some fundamental exercises to manage the feelings that come up when you think about money. You’ll also get your homework assignment!

Part 2 focuses on practical skills including gathering data about your financial picture, creating a realistic budget, steps for moving out of debt, increasing earned income, and establishing achievable, personalized goals for the near future.

Please bring a notebook, pen, and willingness and desire to start changing your relationship to money.
