  • Is your personal financial plan written on a notebook on your desk?
  • Do you feel energized when you’re hitting your business goals, but drained when you think about your personal financial planning?
  • Are you “hoping” that your business yields the results you need to one day retire “in the style to which you’ve become accustomed”?
  • Are you unsettled as you look at the stock market going up and down?
  • Are you overwhelmed by all the financial alternatives to help you save for retirement?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then now is the time to make time for your future. Join us for a group roundtable discussion to learn how wealth planning affects your journey to financial empowerment. Leaders of Planning Alternatives will provide insight on the proper process, available resources, what to look for in choosing the right advisors, and the benefits of organizing your financial roadmap.

Make it a priority to obtain peace of mind both professionally and personally!

This event is complimentary. Online and phone registration is now closed.  We will accept walk-ins at the door.
