Registration is closed
As a freelance writer, are you managing your income to build wealth? Would you like to retire when you choose, and with a comfortable income? Would you like to hold on to more of what you earn, and put your money to work for you?

Come and warm up with IWOC-ers at our regular monthly meeting as Danielle Schultz, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™, and a fee-only planner and investment advisor of Haven Financial Solutions Inc., shows us how to develop a solid program to invest for our futures. Schultz is the author of the recently published Idiot's Guide: Beginning Investing and a former member of IWOC who writes frequently on financial planning and investing and pens a quarterly column on mutual funds, “Fund in Focus,” for Better Investing Magazine.

She will show us how to make a plan to generate money to invest and will give us tools to see:

  • How aggressively or conservatively you should invest and help you consider what types of investments you should select;
  • How to make changes over time, and;
  • How to know how much you will need to retire or be financially secure.

Whether you're just beginning to consider investing or you've been investing for a long time but would like to bounce around some new ideas, this program is for you.

Networking, with snacks and beverages, begins at 5:00 p.m., followed by the program at 6:00 p.m.

The meeting is free for IWOC members. Non-members pay $10 with online preregistration/payment or $15 at the door.

All attendees are welcome to join us for a buy-your-own dinner at a nearby restaurant after the meeting.
