Taking Control: A Financial Management Workshop for Women

The producers of Taking Control: A Financial Management Workshop have decided to RESCHEDULE the workshop that was going to take place on Saturday.  They expect to host this event in the Fall when summer fun is behind us and we all are admittedly more focused on business and financial matters.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  Please email the producer directly to be informed of when the event will be rescheduled or if  you have any questions.  Hilary can be reached at: hbadoian@aristoevents.com.  Have a nice weekend!



If you are not already managing the finances for yourself and/or your family – you will be at some point in your life!

Did You Know?

    * Fifty percent of all marriages end in divorce.
    * Over 3/4 of all married women are widowed at an average age of 56.
    * On average, married women live seven years longer than their husbands.
    * On average, women spend 11.5 years out of the workforce during their lifetime.

Enough said with the depressing stuff!  Let’s figure out how to educate yourself and take control by choice!

How would you handle these financial situations?

  1. You just received a $5K bonus from work - what is the best use of those funds?
  2. You are driving a 2002 Honda Accord and facing a large maintenance bill – Should you turn it in and take advantage of these new car deals?  Should you turn it in for a newer pre-owned car with lower maintenance?  Should you fix it and keep driving your no-payment car?
  3. If you make one financial change in your life starting tomorrow, what would make the biggest difference?

After attending this series you will be able to answer these questions with confidence and ease.... knowing the best decision criteria to use for your personal situation!

This one-day, content rich workshop will give you the knowledge and confidence to take control of your finances in a welcoming, supportive, & fun environment.  Yes, I said “fun” and “finances” in the same sentence!

All women - single, married, divorced or widowed – employed or otherwise - can learn how to take control of their finances and enjoy the benefits of financial management.  This workshop will cover the six key areas essential to a sound financial program—cash management, risk management, investment planning, tax planning, retirement planning, and estate planning.  All attendees will receive a 147-page workbook filled with quizzes and exercises designed to help you put your financial house in order.

Absorb this essential information for you to take control of your financial future!
