    Friday, October 25, 2019Seminar

    Level Up: Steps to Finding Financial Success

    Level Up: Steps to Finding Financial Success

    Level Up! Seminar

     

    This seminar is a professional development event focused on growing members as an individual both personally and professionally, while providing opportunities to build skill sets and advance to the next level. Does the idea of planning for the future stress you out? You're not alone. Financial planning can feel daunting, especially for those just starting out in their career. It doesn't matter your age, income, gender, or marital status, financial planning can help get you where you want to be.

     

    According to a study by Charles Schwab, only 25 percent of Americans have a written financial plan. But the same survey suggests that if you have a written plan, you’re more likely to save on a regular basis, pay your bills on time, and be less likely to engage in frivolous spending.

     

    Topic: Smart Money Moves in Your 20s & 30s
    Speaker: PJ Horan
     

    From basic budgeting to saving for retirement, easy-to-follow strategies will be discussed at the “LevelUp” Seminar on October 25 at Johns Hopkins University Montgomery County Campus. Thank you to our partner the Olney Chamber of Commerce.

     

    Goals include:  

    • Knowing where your money is going & how to control it

    • The importance of a budget

    • How to become a millionaire by the age of 65

       

      Venue & Breakfast Sponsor: Johns Hopkins University MCC

      

    When:
    Friday, October 25, 2019 8:00 AM thru 10:00 AM
