Take Control of Your Financial Life
.  Do you have a "friend" who is super smart, has a great career, holds a graduate degree, has even saved a chunk of money for retirement, but who keeps making the same dumb mistakes when it comes to money?  Or is he or she not making decisions about money at all?  Is this "friend" you?  At this event, Wall Street trader, investment adviser, and business analyst for CBS News, Jill Schlesinger will reveal thirteen costly money mistakes you may be making right now without even knowing it.  Drawing on heartfelt personal stories (yes, money experts screw up, too), Jill will share how to undo some of the well-intentioned decisions you've made like saving for your kids' college before your own retirement, assuming too much risk when you invest, avoiding uncomfortable tasks like creating a will or planning for the long-term care of an aging parent, or saddling your kids with your own money issues.  Jill will also expose the gender lens to money management and how to ensure that some women who may defer and deflect money management decisions do not do so when it matters most.  With probing questions posed by author and workplace expert Debbie Epstein Henry, Jill will share findings of her acclaimed book, The Dumb Things Smart People Do with Their Money, and demonstrate how to break bad habits by following pragmatic and accessible rules for financial management to save tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention avoid countless sleepless nights.  Jill will leave us with practical, no-nonsense, and at times, counterintuitive advice, and educate us on what you really need to hear about retirement planning, college financing, insurance, real estate, how to save money, and more.  Attending this event might just be the smartest investment you make all year.
