I’ve recently been invited to contribute tips on talking with your kids about money
(particularly around the holidays during this down economy) at a workshop called “How to spend, save and invest in a tight economy”.

The workshop is hosted by Megan Poore, a financial advisor in central Austin.  The workshop primarily focuses on adult issues, but one of her passions is helping families & teaching kids about money, so she’s asked me to help provide a little guidance on that issue from the perspective of a parent coach!  I’ll provide a handout at one workshop, and will attend the other in person.  More details below, and feel free to email me with any questions. 

Here’s the rest of the scoop on the workshop:

Megan Poore and Cass Grange have 20 years of experience helping families come up with a spending plan so that they can stay on task and invest to meet their goals. Join us for a fun lunch of helpful tips and handouts.

Two workshop dates – December 9th or 10th.   Arrive by 11:45am and we will have you out of here by 1pm.  $10 includes lunch and all materials.  We will include a tip sheet for budget discussions.  Katie Malinski, LCSW (Parenting Coach and Child & Family Therapist) will provide tips for talking to your children about money.

Each workshop is limited to 10 attendees.  Please RSVP to Megan and include which date you prefer – mpoore AT lsggroup DOT com or 458.2517.  Workshop location: Lucien, Stirling and Gray offices – 4005 Guadalupe.
