Speaker: Jayne Ellegard
Cost: Free

Jayne Transforms women's lives by giving them the COURAGE to be proactive and learn about money now, the CONFIDENCE to get engaged in the financial conversations that impact their future and the WISDOM to make a difference with their loved ones. She does this through virtual and live presentations that are engaging and interactive and allow women to see that they are not alone in this journey to financial empowerment.

Women have often felt unwelcome or uncomfortable around the topic of money. Statistics tell us women typically end up on this journey alone, which means they will need to step up and take responsibility for their financial situation at some point in time.

Money intertwines with every aspect of our lives. It impacts our relationships, careers, health and wellness, and community. Don't ignore this topic, tell yourself you'll get to it soon or sweep it under the rug.
