Taking Charge of Your Finances

One of the perks of my lengthy social media obsession is the amazing people that I find myself surrounded by. Who would have thought that I would ever have friends as dedicated and self-motivated as the women behind ChicagonistaLIVE? If you've never heard of ChicagonistaLIVE, it's an interactive talk-show hosted by 4 of Chicago's most influential social media superwomen. They cover a range of topics that are centered around the events and activities in Chicago, without being Chicago-exclusive. Does that make sense? If not, their website would explain it better than I probably am.


They have a pretty exciting new series entitled "GPS to Your True Wealth." Hosted by a financial expert, Dan Wachs of the Atrium Wealth Advisors, these six short videos will direct you towards the small changes you can make to change the direction of your finances (as in, more security!). I've watched the first video (they're free) and it's only about 3 minutes of very logical statements and suggestions which had me nodding my head and saying "Duh. I need to do this."

You can also find a free downloadable worksheet on the ChicagonistaLIVE website after every video that works alongside his suggestions. I've gone through the first video and worksheet and honestly, it's not anything that will take more than a few minutes of your time to gather your materials and just organize what you have to work with. The next segment, which airs on October 8, will then walk us through setting goals which will then lead into the third segment (airing Nov. 12), focusing on finding good guides to feel secure in our choices. The remaining 3 segments will follow in the months to come.

I know, I know: Not glamorous or thrilling stuff. Personally, just talking about finances causes me to break out into a light sweat (and I don't DO SWEAT). But I have been feeling the pull to have more security under our feet. After the past 5 years, I know that most of America is feeling the same way, so consider giving these free sessions a chance.

I hope they help you!
