Speaker Series Event 1: Author’s Night

Date: September 23, 2024
Location: C Hotel by Carmen’s
Time: 7:00PM
Book: Financial Wellness Factors: our Path Towards Gaining Control of Your Money and Your Life
Ticket Price: TBD.


What if changing just a few things in your life could set you up financially forever?

It doesn’t matter where you think you are financially, it doesn’t matter where you think you are in personal relationships. Perhaps you’re recovering from a major health issue or you have recently lost or started a job. Authors Joseph Trombetta and Gina Colalillo have fine-tuned a strategy for you to follow that will guide you toward financial and personal stability. Using the five pillars they have developed (Financial Wellness Factors) plan your next moves with a healthy balance and strategic goal-setting. Embrace the five pillars of financial wellness – cash flow, attitude, relationships, health, and balance – and start down the path toward financial wellness.

The authors’ tried and tested strategy offers the keys to personal financial restoration and health. This book guides readers young and old first through a financial lifestyle analysis: understanding your expenses and incomes, which is the most important thing in financial matters. The authors also introduce readers to other key elements in the financial wellness journey: Who are your personal and professional mentors? What goals are you setting for yourself and your loved ones? Where do you find balance in your professional and personal life? How do your life decisions affect what you value most in life?

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to dive into the world of literature, meet the minds behind this book, and perhaps discover strategies to better your financial situation.

 Tickets will be available online starting July.
