Should you cut back on as much spending as possible? Will that do the trick?
Invest as much as you can, as soon as possible? If so, how can you do that?
Make more money? Again, how exactly do you do that?
After more than fifteen years of working with families and reading every personal finance book I could get my hands on, I have finally come across a resource that I think every woman should read: Grant Sabatier’s book Financial Freedom: A Proven Path to All the Money You Will Ever Need.
Why is this book so important?
Because it’s the first one I’ve found with a refreshingly candid and effective approach to growing your income in order to grow your bottom line. It definitively shows you how to build multiple sources of revenue, then multiply those earnings through investing. And, how to do it in less time than you imagine, allowing you to live a life you love.
Most personal finance books focus almost exclusively on the merits of budgeting and cutting back on your spending. Or saving money.
Both are helpful, but here’s the problem: You can’t chop your way to financial freedom, nor can you save your way there unless you earn a strong, six-figure salary and are able to pack away most of what you bring in. Even then, you will lose buying power to inflation if you don’t focus on growth. And you might not enjoy the process of living like a miser for years so that you can some day, maybe, benefit from all that hard work.
This month, the Women’s Money Group will hold its first ever live online Book Review and Analysis Workshop. We will take a critical look at Grant Sabatier’s book Financial Freedom: A Proven Path to All the Money You Will Ever Need.
If you’ve ever participated in a book club, you might think that this will entail a couple of minutes of chit chat about the book followed by a lot of socializing.
That is definitely not what this month’s workshop is about. We are after so much more than that!
We are also going to separate out what works for Americans versus what works for Canadians. While our two countries share many similarities, there are important differences when it comes to taxation, banking, real estate, and investment options. We’ll cover those.
Here’s what you’ll get in this month’s workshop:
– A review of the key points to pay attention to, chapter by chapter
– An analysis of Sabatier’s strategies to make more money
– Ideas on how to rethink your current assumptions
– How to negotiate for better pay and work conditions
– A discussion of the arguments against budgeting
– How to calculate Your Number – the number you need to retire if you choose
– The most important number you need to track
– An overview of his investing recommendations and what research has to say about them
– How to use real estate as another source of income
– A checklist of action steps to get going
– Access to a follow up Q&A Session on May 13th for all your questions
By the end of the workshop, you will have a checklist, action steps to grow your income as quickly as possible, and access to a Q&A session two weeks later to help you move forward.
All women can participate.
If you’re a Women’s Money Group member, the workshop is included in your membership. There is no need to register. We will email you a Zoom link prior to the event.
Once your name is on the list, we will email you instructions to join us live online via Zoom on the 28th.
It’s a simple process that only requires a computer, access to the internet, and (ideally) earbuds or a headset.
In addition to the information on loan repayment strategies, you’ll receive the following benefits from participating in our community:
– Ask all your questions in our no blame, no shame, no judgment zone.
– Get evidence-based answers you can trust, not a sales pitch.
– Benefit from support and follow up after the workshop through a Q&A session via Zoom.
Once you’ve grabbed a spot using the link below, we’ll send you a Zoom link and a link to the handout.
On April 28th, we’ll open up the lines at 6:30 pm to give you time to connect, ensure everything is working, and get settled. The workshop will start promptly at 6:45 pm and will run until 9 pm.
The workshop will be recorded. Everyone who is registered will have access to the recording. We will send out a link to the recording a couple of days after the workshop. You can view it whenever is convenient for you.
The recording will be available to you for 30 days after we share the link.
You will also have access to the online Q&A session on May 13th.
If you’d like to ditch financial stress and achieve security sooner rather than later, then you won’t want to miss this event.
Even if you don’t think it’s possible to earn more money, join us. You will certainly find a nugget that can make a big difference in your life and hear how I’m applying this information in mine.
