60 minutes

Every one of us has a relationship with money. It has the power not only to buy goods and services, but also to impact our daily lives and decisions, and very importantly, to impact the myriad relationships we have from marriages to siblings to friendships. The key to money and relationships is understanding the pros, cons, implications and impact on each relationship.

There’s no one right or wrong way to deal with money, but there is the need to recognize its resulting effect.  In this session, we will discuss why it is so difficult to talk about money, explore your money history and discover how different relationships, both within and outside your family, are impacted by money.

This webinar will show you how to:

  • Begin open and honest conversations around wealth
  • Discuss and learn about ‘money history’
  • Recognize teachable moments
  • Educate each family member about money management
