Join a livestream conversation with me and my former boss (who was an awesome boss!) who now helps mid-life and “silver collar” folks with their careers and retirement strategies.
We’ll be right here on this blog, and you can chime in with comments (typed) on my Facebook page. We’ll have strategies and tactics to help you order your finances so that you don’t feel so trapped. BONUS part: discussion for those who have retired, but can’t quite make ends meet.

2:30 -3:30 pm –  YMbD ALUMNI HOUR – hear how clients past and present have benefitted by taking charge of their money! Prepare to be inspired. You may even be able to ask some of them questions.

Lesley (not her real name) is a middle-aged woman, mom of 3 young-adult kids, whose husband suddenly left her. She has a good income, but has not had to be in charge of her finances before.  She’ll describe her story, and we’ll take it from there.

5:30 pm – 7pm  HANGOUT WITH ME!  SAY HI!  I’ll be live-streaming via SKYPE and G+ and Facebook.  Some local friends will be with me In Real Life too.

Give me your best piece of advice for how to get the word out about my program (without buying a page in the NYT!) and you’ll be entered in a draw for $100 gift certificate for Amazon!

    Just watch the videos, participate in the Twitter chat (hashtag #YMBD), or comment on the blog. We’ve finished the Facebook quiz, but there are close to a dozen other posts on the blog from today, so there’s plenty to look at and learn from.
