Women Taking Charge (3) (1)

For executive women, money should be a vehicle to your vision of success, passion and pursuing your life dreams. In this 3-part series “Take Charge of your Personal Finances,” Aspiriant and WBC discuss how to take charge of your financial future. We’ll cover connecting your financial goals with your values, how to build a financial plan, share practical tips for actually accomplishing what’s on your list and monitoring of your investments and other critical disciplines.  

Whether you’re in the midst of a career transition or professional liquidity event, managing newfound wealth or navigating a divorce, arm yourself with actionable tools and a framework to embrace your financial future. Join us to connect with a community of like-minded women, share experiences and explore the building blocks to your own personal financial success. 

Please sign up for one or all of our 45-minute sessions as your interest and schedule allows, when registration becomes available. The sessions are designed to build upon each other and also stand alone. All sessions will be recorded and available for playback. 
We like to keep our community abreast of all of our education opportunities, so please feel free to forward to someone in your network who could benefit from this topic. All women, regardless of experience level, could benefit from our conversation.

Session 2:  Let’s Make a Financial Plan 

In Session 2, we’ll discuss how to become empowered to make smart financial decisions through a long-term, intentional and focused financial plan. 

In Session 1, “Connect your financial goals to your values,” we discussed the two sides of money: the technical side and the emotional side. We demonstrated how to have productive money conversations and develop value and purpose-driven goals for your financial plan through our “Slices of Life” survey.

You’ve worked hard to get where you are today. How can you leverage your financial and human capital to get you where you want to go in the future?

Using real-life stories and through practical application, we’ll discuss how to:

  • Use your Net Worth statement as a planning tool
  • Understand how your asset allocation is a lever to help secure your long-term financial future
  • Proactively plan for the unexpected and untimely
  • Feel confident making important financial decisions

Lynne Born, Mary Ellen Krueger, and April Antonio of Aspiriant will lead this discussion.
