Overcoming the Myths:
$$$ Taking Control of Your Money & Your Future $$$

Thursday, September 11th 2014, 4:30 to 6:30 PM

The East Bank Club
500 N. Kingsbury, Chicago, IL. 60654
Moderator: Larry G. Goldsmith, C.P.A., J.D., C.F.F., and M.A.F.F., is a member of the CJBS Financial Group’s litigation, asset protection and tax practices team.

Panelists are dynamic, experienced professionals who are passionate about empowering women to take control of their financial future.

Julie Murphy Casserly, CLU, ChFC, CFP, JMC Wealth Management Inc. Julie is an 18 year veteran of the financial services industry and has often been referred to as a financial healer and visionary.

Carolyn Leonard, Founder and CEO DyMynd. Carolyn is a serial entrepreneur and was one of the first women to trade at the CBOE. She spent 21 years in the pits before starting DyMynd.

Linda A. Lucatorto, M.Ed., CPC, Divorce Coach and Mediator, mentors clients during the transitions of divorce. She helps clients: learn about their options, set realistic expectations, make solid decisions and prepare for consultations with attorneys.

Linda told me:
"As women, we often forget all the financial decisions we effectuate. We make most of the health care decisions for our family members and choose the specialists they see. We arrange for child care and make many of the important school decisions for our children, from pre-school to college. We also have crucial input about the purchase of our family cars and household needs. We may even pay the household bills. Although we are always making financial decisions for others, most of us don’t feel we are financially savvy. It is time to bust that myth!

I hope you can join Larry, Julie, Carolyn and me on September 11th at the lovely East Bank Club. De-stress after the work day and join us for interesting and thought provoking discussion, food, drink, networking and camaraderie!"
