Women’s Equality Day is on August 26th, so what better way to observe this holiday and double down on our efforts to reach full equality than by chatting about good money habits over yummy food? As Sallie Krawcheck, Wall Street veteran/co-founder and CEO of Ellevest, a digital investment advisor for women, puts it: “Women will not be fully equal with men until we are financially equal with men.”
Makes sense, but how do we work on attaining that financial equality? The first step is being in control of your money. At this month's Money Brunch, Sallie will share tips on making investing work for your monthly income, investing strategically toward your future, and figuring out which steps to take to get in financial control.
- What does financial control mean to me, and how can I get it?
- What’s the 50/30/20 money theory, and how can I apply it to my financial situation?
- What’s the best money advice women AREN’T getting?
- What the $%#@ is goal-based investing, and why should I know about it?
