For Your Family and Friends

Invite the special people in your life for a time to gather and discuss a financial topic of your choice. Each event will include a fun, money personality type card game, and a discussion around one of the following: Earning/Under-Earning, Credit and Debt Management, Saving, Giving, and Protecting Your Assets. You can choose to host all 5 sessions too! The choice is up to you!

Here's What You'll Need to Do in 3 Easy Steps:

1. Contact Salathia to book a date, time and event topic. *Cost per event and includes materials.

2. Decide on the location. This is your party, so make it as simple or lavish as you like. You may want to host an event in your home, restaurant, library, or other public/private space. 

3. Invite your guests. 

Event Topics:

Money Personality Type card game included with event topic of your choice.

1. Earning and Under-Earning

2. Credit and Debt Management

3. Saving

4. Giving (Philanthropy)

5. Asset Protection

Event Details:

Plan for 3 hours. This gives you and your guests time to grab a snack, get settled, play the card game, and participate in a facilitated discussion around the topic of your choice. If you plan to host future sessions with the same group of people, 2 hours is all the time you'll need because we will not have to play the card game. 

Your guests can expect to leave with tips, tools, strategies, and resources to help them achieve their financial goals based upon their values.
