February chapter meeting: Understand your clients’ beliefs about money
Tuesday, February 19, at 7:30 a.m.
“Your client isn't the problem. It is an unhealthy belief system and the relationship we and our clients have with money that matters.”

In this month’s chapter meeting, we’ll use self-evaluation tools and other resources to discover different personal beliefs about money. We’ll then look at ways to transform a client’s unhelpful financial beliefs into a healthier approach.

This session will be led by Rick Kahler, CFP® and president of Kahler Financial Group. Rick integrates financial planning and psychology in his work, and he was recently named an “Icon and Innovator” by Investment News.

Optional session: Pro Bono Workshop
Following the chapter meeting, we’ll host an optional workshop on how to best manage healthcare costs. Participants will leave with new tools and resources to help patients, families and caregivers gain financial stability during a medical emergency.
