Ever since the personal credit crisis of the 80s and 90s, you’ve been getting personal finance advice rammed down your throat.
And, let’s be frank: most of us needed it.
I remember when I got my very first credit card at 18 or 19. It felt like a bomb about ready to go off in my pocket…
…but I knew I needed to start building my credit history so that I could one day buy a new car, buy a house, or even qualify for a great job.
I followed as much of the advice as I could (but I’ve by no means been perfect).
Once I started my business, though, I realized that some of the advice I’d been exposed to for 20 years was counter to my new needs as a bootstrapping entrepreneur.
After I became more successful and started making more money in a month than I used to in a year, I realized some of that advice was just plain unhelpful! I suddenly had new kinds of assets, new opportunities, and new strategies for building wealth…
…but no idea what to do with them.
As I’ve worked with business owners over the last 8 years, I’ve noticed this same story play out over & over again.
While some lucky people are born into entrepreneurial families and grow up with an investment mindset, most of us are born to parents with regular jobs and traditional ways of managing money.
Taking risks, using debt, investing in new opportunities… they all can seem off limits based on the conventional wisdom about personal finance.
I’ve been wanting to tackle this subject for years but I’ve never had the right situation.
You see, I’m no expert in this area–I’m just hella curious–so teaching a course was out. I’ve done an interview on the subject here or there, but this topic is too big to even scratch the surface of in one 30-minute chat.
That’s when it hit me: I could bring together several experts, plus our curious community at CoCommercial, plus my own skill as a facilitator and host a virtual conference on the topic.
So today I’m thrilled to announce:
The New Economy & Your Money
The Changing Landscape of Wealth & Personal Finance in Our 21st Century Economy
This virtual conference will include interviews with 4 experts in the areas of entrepreneurship, finance, and business budgeting. Plus, I’ll be guiding participants through the experience with specially designed preparation & integration sessions so they don’t get overwhelmed with ideas or to-dos.
Now, you might be wondering: “Tara, I know you’ve said you have a real problem with telesummits in the past.”
Yep, I have. This isn’t like most telesummits.
My team and I have designed this experience to be manageable, social, engaging, and interactive.
It’s as close to the experience of attending an in-person conference as we can manage. There will be time to meet other participants, reflect on your own experience, and chat with the experts.
You won’t be getting bombarded with a massive playlist of interviews–the conversations will happen live, with your input and guidance.
You won’t be surrounded by people who have no connection to our community or values–the conference is a closed network.
You won’t be forced to fit in hours and hours of content into your downtime–the conference is 1 day you can plan for and attend as a live participant to get the full experience.
Here’s how it works:
On Thursday, June 1, you’ll meet me live in our virtual conference room on Crowdcast at 11am Eastern/12pm Pacific.
My opening remarks will guide you to consider some of the financial challenges you’re currently facing–both personal and financial–and look at the opportunities they’re presenting for you.
Then, you’ll hear from Amanda Steinberg, founder & CEO of DailyWorth and WorthFM (and my personal money mentor). We’ll talk about how to become affluent at any income and what that means for managing how you grow your business.
Next, you’ll hear from Mark Butler–the Budget Nerd–on how to budget in your business so that you can finally afford to invest in the opportunities (coaching, training, tech, travel, etc…) that will help you grow faster.
Our third speaker is Jaime Masters, author & host of Eventual Millionaire. Jaime and I will talk about the ways people who make it to millionaire status have used their money differently than those who don’t.
Then, we’ll take a break for lunch and networking. Afterwards, I’ll host an integration session where I’ll take your questions, give you prompts for reflection and planning, and point you in the direction of additional resources.
Our fourth speaker is Jacquette Timmons, author of Financial Intimacy. Jacquette will share how to approach tricky money conversations in our most important relationships. After all, it might be you running your business… but your money is a whole-family affair.
Finally, we’ll close out the day with more reflection, networking, and planning.
…at this point you’re probably wondering how much this is all going to cost.
We thought long and hard about it. We could have easily priced this experience at $399, $299, or $199.
In the end, we decided to give it to you free of charge.
All you need to do is give CoCommercial a try.
That’s right, The New Economy & Your Money virtual conference is a free, members-only event.
To join us for this epic event, just sign up for your free 30-day, all-access pass.
Inside, you’ll meet other New Economy small business owners having in-depth conversations about what’s really working (or not working) to grow and manage their businesses. It’s the perfect place to trade notes about money and business finance, too!
See you there!
