Upcoming events (3)
In response to member feedback, we've created this event to cover investing basics :) If you're not sure why you would invest in one asset class vs. another, how markets work, or where to even buy a stock - this event is for you! HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL LEARN • Why investing doesn't have to be risky (...the ultimate antidote to fear is UNDERSTANDING!) • How markets work and how to interpret financial news • The 5 asset classes (cash, bonds, real estate, commodities, stocks) and how to invest in each of them • Different investing strategies and how to choose one that's right for you • How much money to start investing with ($1K is MORE than enough) • What accounts do you need to set up, and where? • A live on-screen walkthrough of how to place your first trade! Although we can't tell you what to invest in, we want to give you a framework so you can make these decisions ON YOUR OWN! That is the ultimate to becoming a financially empowered woman who is in charge of her own future! MONTHLY INVESTING CIRCLES After attending this event, be sure to come to our monthly "investing circles" where you can work on your investing stuff (research, studying, to-do's) in a roomful of supportive and like-minded women. If you get stuck, someone will be right there to help you out! Our members have used these meetings to do book clubs, form an investing club with pooled funds, research stocks, take an options trading course together, find accountability buddies, and get ALL their investing questions answered.

In this hands-on beginner investing class, you'll learn the value investing methodology of Warren Buffett, one of the greatest investors of our time. We'll break it down step-by-step and take you through the research, calculations, and thought process. Value Investing is the only strategy for reliably building wealth in stocks, and it's actually very simple to understand. Value investors view stocks as pieces of ownership in real businesses, not just a randomly moving price on a stock chart. This mindset already puts you way ahead of the pack. In a nutshell, you need to: • Know how much a business is worth ("Intrinsic Value") and pay LESS • Buy only when the company is selling at a discount ("Margin of Safety") • Identify companies with a competitive advantage ("Economic Moat") We'll take you through the whole process, step-by-step! Most of the investing how-to out there is overwhelming and totally not actionable. After this class, you'll walk away ACTUALLY knowing how to find great investments. You'll have calculators, templates, and a watchlist of stocks to kickstart your investing. SKILLS YOU’LL WALK AWAY WITH: • Brainstorm investment ideas • Create a stock watchlist • Calculate a stock's intrinsic value • Project your return on investment • Build in a margin of safety to minimize your risk • Understand the financial metrics and vocabulary used in stock investing MONTHLY INVESTING CIRCLES And because we're all in this together, you will never be alone! After attending this event, be sure to come to our monthly "investing circles" where you can work on your investing stuff (research, studying, cross of your financial to-do's) in a roomful of supportive and like-minded women. Doing it in a social setting makes investing more easy and fun. Plus if you get stuck, someone will be right there to help you out!
