At our core the Greater Burlington Women’s Forum is a place for women of all walks of life to connect and gain useful tools, information and inspiration. In this new world of virtual gatherings, we are excited for the opportunity to reach even more of you. This month, we invite you and your entire quaranTEAM (pets & kids welcome) to join us online to discuss money maintenance in a time of crisis.
Joined by Connie Beal of United Way’s Working Bridges and Andria Denome of Baystate Financial, we’ll spend the hour discussing strategies for staying in the moment. Especially right now, we understand that it’s easy to feel like things are happening to you, so our panelists will share practical action items to help you regain control as it relates to your finances. Questions? Be sure to submit them when registering for this event!
We’ll kick off the session with brief introductions from our panelists and then move into a discussion about setting realistic goals, steps you can take right now, tips for managing cash flow and resources that are available to you locally. What does financial stability mean to you? What are your short term and long term goals? How can you use this time to rethink your budget and strategy? We’ll spend the second part of the session addressing your questions, starting with the ones received during registration and opening up Q&A if we have time. We hope you’ll leave this session with actionable next steps and a list of accessible resources available.
