"Get Happy About Your Money"

Speakers: Sara Stanich, CFP, CDFA, Liz Sylvan, CFP of Cultivating Wealth

The Marble Women’s Ministry is pleased to announce the return of our “You and Your Money” financial planning program. Many people seek professional advice on how to earn, save and invest their money. But when it comes to spending it, most people just follow their intuitions. Scientific research shows that those intuitions are often wrong.

Sara Stanich, CFP, CDFA and Liz Sylvan, CFP of Cultivating Wealth, a fee-only Registered Investment Advisory, discuss the intersection between psychology and financial decisions, and explain why you can get more happiness for your money by following five principles, from choosing experiences over stuff to spending money on others.

Cost $12, includes soup & salad and materials.

Click here to register by Sunday, February 24. Or sign up Sundays after worship at the Women’s Ministry table in the Loft. For information, contact Don Piper.
