FLaNC WEEKEND READING:
Hi everyone, I just wanted to pass along some weekend reading on your money and perhaps to pass on to friends or family. No pressure to read all or any of them - the best material are typically the ones that speak to your situation the most. If you have favorite blogs, podcasts, books, magazines, or newsletters you read regularly, please let me know!
Particular themes this time around: Filing your taxes, new trends of MBA programs, and how financial reform may proceed and affect your money! And a new set of "odds and ends" articles below too :)
Welcome to a group that cares about destressing on your financial life, bolstering your financial health, being as informative as possible, and to have some fun while doing so! :)
PRIMARY THEMES: * Making the most of your Retirement account (401k, IRA, Roth IRA, 501k, etc.) * Understanding how current events affect your finances/investments * Investing 101 "classes": 4-5 2x yearly sessions on picking stocks, mutual funds, building a healthy portfolio for you, etc. * Bringing in professionals for their valuable insights
COMMUNICATIONS: * Weekend reading a couple times a month for tips, tricks, and latest financial/investing insights. * Polls to get a better understanding of your interests, financial questions, and related items. * Updates on things like our "virtual stock exchange" contest (http://www.meetup.com...) * Member Profile (Q&A)
Community based, community run, community empowering :)
Financial Literacy - because wisdom and understanding makes great returns on any investment.
