Upcoming Education Webinars 

Betty Doll

Date: Wednesday, June 12, 2019
Time: 2:00pm EST
Speaker: Betty Doll
Topic: Yes, Long-Term Care Insurance is Important... but WHY?

When presenting long-term care insurance to a prospect, we typically focus the conversation on "getting you good care", "protecting your assets", "giving you choices", or "avoiding going on Medicaid". Or we try to convince them of the odds of needing care. There is a better way and it is as relevant to those with significant assets as it is to the middle class. This presentation will focus on providing tips and techniques for using the same language to present long-term care insurance as is used in the life insurance discussion. It is not about the policyholder. Rather, it is about protecting the lifestyle of the people they love. Join us to see how changing your approach can change your results!

Speaker: Maura Cunningham
Topic: Top Seven Secrets in the U.S. Financial Landscape

Maura Cunningham, founder and Executive Director of Rock The Street, Wall Street, joins us for an informative webinar that outlines the top seven secrets that afflict the financial lives of U.S. citizens. Highlights include the fact that we lose girls in math at age nine in the US, the number one reason why girls don’t choose STEMP professions (Finance is the M in STEM), and why women need to learn “fake it til you make it”, just like the guys. She'll also discuss the abhorrent state of financial literacy in the U.S., the “fake” state legislation to remedy this, how the financial services industry doesn’t know how to recruit women and why diversity and inclusion budgets are offensive.

Topic: The Value of Professional Designations

When pursuing a professional designation, it is important to know what you are looking for and why you are looking for it. Most financial advisors pursue a credential to advance their career, distinguish themselves within the industry, expand their business, or their clients are looking for it.

With so many financial credentials out there, how do you know which one is best for you? Is it from an accredited institution and will it truly add value to your business? It is paramount that your time, effort, and money are well spent to further your career. The College for Financial Planning works hard to ensure our students find the right designation for their personal and professional goals all while providing an exceptional learning experience. The College offers programs for all levels from those new to the industry to someone who is growing their business or wanting to advance their education to graduate studies. Join me to learn more about which designation may be right for you.
