Virtual Program: The American Dream: Building Your Financial Future

Join us for The American Dream: Building Your Financial Future, Tuesday, June 2, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

With the commoditization of planning by the financial media, it is more difficult for people to understand that there is a comprehensive process to building a financially secure future. Using the analogy of building a house, we cover the overall process of building a financially secure future. This class will provide a new paradigm of thinking. Instead of thinking something is bad or good, the question to ask is “Does this fit for me?”
