November Luncheon featuring Financial Advisor Ellen Linares @ Bonterra
Nov 20 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
November Luncheon featuring Financial Advisor Ellen Linares @ Bonterra

Don’t miss our last luncheon of the year!  Join us for the entertaining and informative session with Ellen Linares, a financial advisor with Mass Mutual.

Having control over finances is a key part of a professional woman’s long-term financial well-being. In this presentation we will highlight several top financial concerns: Debt, Savings, Investing and Retiring.

As we dive into each topic, we will have an interactive discussion on specifics such as how to navigate debt, creating a savings plan, getting comfortable with investing concepts, and planning for retirement.

We will also discuss the importance of self-education, recognizing motivations and asking for help when taking control your finances.

**Also, WLC will be collecting donations for the benefit of Safe Alliance at the luncheon.  Safe Alliance has indicated that the items that would be of most use to them are things such as: granola/cereal bars, pop tarts, black pepper, kosher salt, mayonnaise, ketchup, fruit cups, and canned tuna.  Any and all donations will be delivered to Safe Alliance and are greatly appreciated!  Thank you in advance!
