Description

Ladies, how comfortable are you with investing?

If you're like most women, you hate it and you haven't done much of it. You know that it's an important part of creating financial security, but it's so boring, complicated, and scary. You could lose money! Why not hand it over to your spouse or an advisor; they’ll do a better job, right?

Not necessarily. And how would you know?

Interesting fact: When women get down to investing, they do as good a job as men, or better! What if you felt confident enough to tackle it too?

Good news: Women's Money Group will help you achieve this.

In this month's WMG meetup, I will help you to understand the nuts and bolts of investing:

  • What do all those terms mean?
  • What's the difference between an RRSP and a TFSA?
  • What's the difference between buying stocks versus mutual funds?
  • How does compound interest work?
  • How do you deal with risk, and how does risk work anyway?
  • Where do you start?
  • What does asset allocation mean and why does it matter?
  • Can I do it myself or should I use someone to do it for me?

This is such an important topic, with significant consequences for women, that we're going to address it over several meetings. This month, we'll start with the core concepts behind investing so that you have a solid foundation to build on.

Through an interactive, case-based approach, you'll learn about the different kinds of investments, how risk and fear factor into our decision-making, and what research has to say about the effectiveness of various approaches.

Here's what I won't be telling you: what to buy. That's your choice. I'm not here to tell you what to do, but rather teach you how to do it. By the time we're done our series on investing, you'll have a solid understanding of how the system works, what the various factors are, and how it all fits into your goals.

Then you can choose what is right for you.

My main mission with this is to grow both your understanding and your confidence. Why? Because a lack of confidence is hurting women's willingness to grow their wealth, according to research from the U.S. and my own research project.

As part of the June 26th event, you will also have complimentary access to a webinar on July 10th to follow up on your progress. There's a community of like-minded women who are here to support you. Those who are WMG members will have access to me for additional Q&A's through the closed Facebook group.

If you're concerned or embarrassed about the thought that you'll have to disclose personal information, you can rest easy. This is a safe zone where you participate only if you choose to. If you'd prefer to sit quietly and simply absorb the discussions, that's perfectly fine.

If you're new to Women's Money Group, you can attend your first meeting for free. If you've already been to one meeting, you need to reserve a seat through this page and you'll also need to get a membership through my website at www.YourFinancialLaunchpad.com/Membership. You can select a monthly membership for $39/month plus tax, or an annual membership for $347 plus tax. The website lists the many perks included in each membership.

If you are a member, access to the meeting is included in your membership. You just need to reserve a seat through the link below.

Here are some of the benefits of participating in our monthly meetings:

MORE CONFIDENCE | GET UNSTUCK | ROCK YOUR FINANCES | GROW WITH OTHERS

  • Finally get past your blocks, create a system that works, and achieve your goals with our help.
  • Ask whatever you like in our women-only safe zone.
  • Get evidence-based answers you can trust, not a sales pitch.
  • Hands-on experience through case-based learning.
  • You’ll get support and follow up after the meeting.

Seats are limited, so be sure to book your spot today! Members, if you bring a guest, your name will be entered in a draw to win a copy of my book, Protect Your Purse, at the Wine night in July. Please note that guests need to register separately under their own name.

To help us to continue to offer the first meeting for free, kindly advise us at least 48 hours in advance if you are unable to attend.

See you on June 26th!
