Spend Smarter Right NOW!
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

New Year, New You!

We all want to make more money but most of us can't control when or how we get a raise. However, we can change how we think about what we spend and learn to manage our money differently in order to help us reach our financial goals. In this seminar, we will tackle the following ideas about spending smarter:

  • What are "today dollars" and "tomorrow dollars," and what does that mean to you?
  • How do we hide our spending from ourselves and how to stop it?
  • What is a strong "financial fortress" and how do you build it?

Presented by Steven Briggs, author and Financial Advisor at Waddell & Reed
