The juggling’s overPosted to Financial Capability on 18-07-2017
There’s good and bad news when it comes to women and money: we’re great at handling the day-to-day stuff, not so good at the longer term.
There are all kinds of reasons for that, but there are also lots of solutions. The tricky bit is finding the time in our busy lives to sit down and do something about it.
We’re running two events that’ll give you a chance to do just that. One will be live online and everyone can take part, the other is a show in Auckland with 250 tickets available.
1) “WTF? What the Finance” live online event
2pm Sunday 30 July
We know women juggle an awful lot of stuff – work, home, family - and often put yourselves last. We’re getting women up and down the country to sit down at the same moment and look after your financial needs.
We'll provide an online checklist, tools and guides to help focus on your financial future.
We’ll also have a team of financial experts standing by, who will be able to answer any questions you may have about money, while you’re working your way through the checklist.
Sign up here to take part, get a free notebook and a reminder nearer the time.
You’ll be able to post your questions on our Sorted community forum and our experts will answer them live.
Plus, if you live in Auckland:
2) “I’ll have what she’s having” event
7.30pm Wednesday 16 August
Tickets cost $40.
The girls’ night out that you’ll be talking about for weeks to come.
Grab your mates, your mum, your daughters, your sisters, heck grab the neighbour across the road who you’ve been meaning to say ‘hi’ to ever since you moved in.
We’ve lined up an evening of insight and inspiration that’ll give you practical steps to get your financial future on track, but more importantly lots of laughs. You’ll leave bursting with ways to take charge of your money.
And because it’s a girls’ night out, there’ll be bubbles, a tasty treat to greet you on arrival, and a goodie bag for everyone.
Our speakers are:
Diane Maxwell, Retirement Commissioner, who’ll reveal how to save for your retirement without sacrificing your wardrobe and how to avoid STDs – sexually transmitted debt.
One of ANZ’s Human Resources gurus, who’ll tell you how to get a pay-rise and give tips on negotiating for equal treatment at work.
Award-winning comedian and social commentator Michele A’Court, who will bring her wit and wisdom.
Tickets available here.
