Update to the My Money Life Giveaway: I was crazy busy the last couple of days, and I like to give advance notice for the end of a giveaway, so I’ve extended the deadline to enter until Monday, August 30th at 8pm. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to enter! {The giveway is now closed.}

I’m super stoked to tell y’all about the first annual My Money Life : A Woman’s Financial Workshop & Expo!!  I know you all are just like me, and work extra hard to save your hard-earned money and are very conscientious about how you spend it. Or you probably wouldn’t be following my blog :) Well, guess what?! Now there’s a fun, LOCAL event for all us money-saving divas to go get ENERGIZED together and learn how to be financial rockstars!!     

The My Money Life Expo is on Saturday, October 2nd from 7:30am – 4:00pm, and will be held at the Wyndham Hotel in downtown Phoenix. The cost for attending is $59 per person including lunch. There is an additional $6 discount for “bringing a money buddy” and a $10 discount per ticket if you register in groups of 10 or more. I’m still trying to round up 10 co-workers/friends, so I haven’t bought my ticket yet, but I’m definitely going to go! 

There will be 2 national keynote speakers, and 15 different workshops (you can choose to attend 3). The workshops cover all sorts of money-related topics including: investing, budget-planning, debt counseling, starting your own business, energy savings, talking to your kids about money, and organizing your house. They all sound so intriguing, it’s hard to choose just 3! 

When I first contacted Susan to get more information on the expo, here’s what she had to say:

My goal is to bring resources and conversations out into the open so that we can create some fun and energy around money and make it so that all women from all economic backgrounds can learn and take even a few small steps on their financial journey.

It’s like Susan was taking the words out of my mouth!! Empowering women is something that I happen to feel very passionately about. I’ve mentored young elementary age children all the way up to college graduates, and feel really strongly about encouraging their growth and potential. Only recently have I started really gaining an interest in personal finance, and I would love to combine the two interests. I realize that not everyone finds investing in Roth IRAs or opening HSA’s as exciting as me :) It is my hope that by sharing my everyday decisions and thought processes on this blog, that I can help de-mystify some of those “confusing” money topics!! Also, I hope to dispense some of that fear behind the scarier financial topics — because if I can do it without any formal financial training, then so can you!! 

Also, I just wanted to point out that 10% of the net proceeds from the My Money Life Expo will be donated to Local First AZ and The Jewell McFarland Lewis Fresh Start Women’s Foundation Resource Center. Kimber Lanning, from Local First, will also be one of the workshop speakers to talk about the importance of buying local. I actually found out about the My Money Life Expo through the Local First AZ newsletter, and I’m very happy that My Money Life is supporting the local economy!! 

Go HERE to find out more and register for the expo!  The first 200 people to register will receive a free goodie bag!

The website just launched last Friday, so hurry and register and you can still be one of the first 200!
