May 29, 2018 - Women's Money Group Meeting

How to Protect Yourself Financially

Ottawa - Bayview Yards, 7 Bayview Rd, Ottawa, ON K1Y 2C5

May 29, 2018 | 7:00pm-9:00pm

Ladies, how vulnerable are you financially?

When I was in my twenties, I thought I was doing really well. Then, in my early thirties, tragedy struck and my financial house came tumbling down around me. I didn't see any of it coming, despite the fact that I'm a Type A, organized, and goal-driven person.

Almost overnight, I found myself $400,000 in debt and without a future. Imagine having to completely reinvent your life, from scratch, at 32. That was my reality back then.

The thing that I realized in a hurry is that the biggest point of risk in anyone's life is what they don't know. If you don't know that you are vulnerable, how can you protect yourself? If you're not aware that the way you've set up your financial life is full of holes, how can you prevent a mess when life happens?

And life happens to everyone at some point.

Protecting yourself isn't rocket science, but it does involve setting up your personal finances in a way that mitigates risk and provides a buffer if the unthinkable happens - like divorce, death, major illness in the family, sudden loss of job, and so on.

In this month's Women's Money Group meeting, I will show you which documents and financial structures offer a measure of protection. Through an interactive, case-based approach, you'll learn about the various points of vulnerability and how they change depending on your circumstances. You will also learn how to structure your personal finances to minimize your exposure to potential problems and to provide you with the resources you need should something happen.

You will also learn everything you need to know about your Credit Bureau Report and Credit Score - what affects it, how to improve it, and why it matters.

Get guidance and support as you work through your points of vulnerability to get to a place of greater security.

As part of the May 29th event, you will also have complimentary access to a webinar in mid-June to follow up on your progress. There's a community of like-minded women who are here to support you. Those who are WMG members will have access to me for additional Q&A's through the closed Facebook group.

If you're new to Women's Money Group, you can attend your first meeting for free. If you are a member, access to the meeting is included in your membership. You just need to reserve a seat through the link below.

Here are some of the benefits of participating in our monthly meetings:


  • Finally get past your blocks, create a system that works, and achieve your goals with our help.
  • Ask whatever you like in our women-only safe zone.
  • Get evidence-based answers you can trust, not a sales pitch.
  • Hands-on experience through case-based learning.
  • You’ll get support and follow up after the meeting.

Seats are limited, so be sure to book your spot today! Members, if you bring a guest, your name will be entered in a draw to win a copy of my book, Protect Your Purse, at the Wine night in July. Guests need to register separately under their own name.

To help us to continue to offer the first meeting for free, kindly advise us at least 48 hours in advance if you are unable to attend.

See you on May 29th!
