Surviving and thriving as an entrepreneur, freelancer or startup requires strong financial management skills, but getting there can feel stressful and overwhelming, especially when your income is variable. You’ll set financial goals, create a spending plan that works for you, and establish the habits that lead to financial health. You’ll learn how to make financial planning less time-consuming by spending 30 minutes a week directly focused on your budget, spending, savings, and investments. You’ll also learn how to create immediate growth in your savings and investment accounts. Galia will also share key techniques for taking the stress and uncertainty out of planning for retirement. You’ll be able to confidently and successfully manage your personal finances, and have more time (and money!) to do the work you love.
