Money Circle - How to Earn More Money w/ Maggie Germano, Financial Coach
Sometimes, budgeting and cutting spending isn’t enough. Sometimes, you’ve done everything you can to live bare bones, but you still can’t reach your goals. There are no more lattes to not buy. At that point, the only solution is to increase your income. This month, we’ll gather to brainstorm ways to bring in more money, whether that be asking for a raise or getting a second job.

Money Circle is a safe open space where women can ask questions, air their fears, brag about accomplishments, and be honest about any confusion they may have around money.

Light snacks and wine will be provided.

Alyssa’s LYJ Search seminar gave me a lot of insight into what kind of job I want and how to talk to others more effectively about what I have to offer. I felt like it challenged me to work on myself and focus on what I’m really looking for. I would recommend this career workshop to anyone who is looking for a job or changing their career path.
