Join personal finance educator and founder of MoneyZen, Manisha Thakor, to reset your finances and invest with ease.

Manisha Thakor offers 5 key questions for finding the financial advisor that's right for you.

Do your personal finances need a reset?

The challenges of the past year have tested us emotionally, socially, spiritually― and yes, financially. Systemic barriers to financial stability based on gender, race, and class are compounded during this period of global pandemic.

In this 3-part Omega Teachers Studio for all who identify as women, learn both financial and emotional tools and tactics to move you toward financial well-being with personal finance educator Manisha Thakor. Manisha empowers you to experience calmness, clarity, and confidence around your finances, as she addresses finance basics, investing ethically, and finding trustworthy financial advice.

This workshop is offered in three 2-hour sessions. For registered participants, each session will be available on demand after the live session is complete.

Would a concise roadmap for the journey to financial well-being be a welcome addition to your 2021 self-care toolkit?

In this 2-hour session, Manisha brings you back to financial well-being basics such as:

  • How to pay bills when cash is tight
  • How to know when it does, and doesn’t, make sense to consolidate debt
  • Finding a framework to understand what type of spender you are
  • Identifying simple ways to match your spending to your values

 

Session 2: Investing Made Simple
Date: Wednesday, March 24, 7:00-9:00 p.m. EDT (4:00-6:00 p.m. PDT)
Looking to make your hard-earned money work for you? Want your investments to support our shared future and creating a better world?

In this 2-hour session with Manisha, learn how investing your savings can turbo charge your ability to live a life of emotional wealth and financial health.

You learn:

  • How stocks, bonds, and mutual funds work for you
  • What kinds of accounts to use for investing
  • How to find investments that reflect your values
  • How to select the right financial institutions for your money

The idea of investing can be scary because markets can swing up and down. Manisha provides actionable ways to use market history to work in your favor, so you feel financially at peace no matter what the markets are doing.

 

Session 3: Finding Trustworthy Financial Advice
Date: Wednesday, March 31, 7:00-9:00 p.m. EDT (4:00-6:00 p.m. PDT)
How would it feel to know you have a trusted financial life expert to guide you through big money decisions? When looking for quality financial advice, it can be confusing to identify which are unbiased, trustworthy sources of personal finance guidance and which options are essentially salespeople in disguise.

In this 2-hour session, Manisha explains the different types of advisors, what fees they charge, what services you can expect to receive from them, and how to find one to match your needs.

You also learn what questions to ask when interviewing prospective financial advisors and what kind of credentials to look for in an advisor, to support you in living a life of emotional wealth and financial health.
