Presenter: Rachel Marshall
Target Audience: New Agents

Do you wish you had more in savings and investments, with a solid plan for the future? The thing is, almost everything we learn about money robs us of control and steals our cash flow. However, it is possible to save more, invest sooner, build solid ground and certainty today, and create time and money freedom, even with income that varies from month to month.

In this webinar, Rachel Marshall shares her own struggles with saving money and the real-life strategies she used to overcome the month-to-month and consistently begin putting 30% or more of her monthly income to work.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Overcome the three forces that are making your poor;
  • Learn three key strategies to keep more of your money today;
  • See how one simple change can increase your savings.

If you are looking for ways to save and invest more of the income you already make, build good money habits without having to work harder or live on ramen, and supercharge your emergency/opportunity fund and make it do twice the work, this webinar is for you.

October: Credit & Debt

The Psychology of Money: Managing Debt and Taking Control of Your Financial Life
Presenter: Derek Hagan
Target Audience: Mid-career Agents

Pay to view

Money is stressful. Money is the leading cause of stress for Americans - all of us. But it doesn’t feel that way. It feels like we are alone on an island and everyone else has it together. So we end up doing what it looks like everyone else does...and we go into debt doing so. In addition, we are all a product of our upbringing. What we saw and experienced as children shaped how we make financial decisions today. Many of us end up in debt because of the stories we tell ourselves about money’s role in our happiness. These stories that we tell ourselves are called Money Scripts, and if left unexamined, they can keep us stuck.

Understanding the psychology of debt and money is powerful. It helps us understand the role we want money to play in our lives. It helps us ask the question, “What happens when we pay off all our debt? What’s the money for?”

Learn why we end up in debt, and how we can ground ourselves to a financial purpose in order to keep ourselves out of debt. Understand your Money Scripts to improve your financial health.
