Featured Sessions

How To Be Your Own CFP

If you’re striving for financial independence and income diversification, proper planning is key. And this keynote from a respected CFP is the perfect primer in taking control of your own financial planning, both in the longer term and on the steps to getting there along the way.


Funding The Life You Want: Passive Income 101

Maybe the question isn’t “living to work” vs. “working to live” — while they may take some up-front investment, passive income streams can help you stay financially afloat without tying your income to a 9-to-5. This workshop will teach you how to look beyond traditional employment (or self-employment) to start funding the life you want.


Redefining Your Value Beyond Your 9-5

Featuring an expert panel of psychologists and wellness experts, and tying together everything we’ve covered from the day (from reexamining our workweek to creating intentional income streams), this session will discuss what it looks like to redefine your self-worth in a world that tells you your job is the most important thing about you.
