Entrepreneurs can be challenged with managing money more than most professionals. In this session our expert, Gary Erickson, Regional Director of Money Management Educators will discuss Finding Financial Balance. Some keys points he will discuss are:

· Recent tax law changes and how these changes affect planning. The fiscal cliff, what changed, what didn't.

·Tax advantaged investments in your retirement plan. Whether self-employed or an employee, what type of plan should I be using even on a limited budget? Self Employed Pension Plans, Simple IRAs, 401k's?

·Pre Tax vs. Tax Free Investing: why knowing the difference now may change your future. How to avoid paying too much tax.

·How to make fragmented investments already in place work “together”.

Regardless of your tax bracket, I think you will find the combination of Gary's educational approach and sense of humor make this workshop both enjoyable and enlightening.
