A Community Workshop: Be a Boss With Your Finances

by | Apr 7, 2021

Workshop Recap: “Be a BO$$ With Your Finances”

(part of the Financial Education Workshop Series)

It’s no secret that when it comes to discussing financial topics, many women feel uncomfortable. In fact, according to a recent study by Merril Lynch, 61% of women would rather discuss death than finances. But pushing these conversations to the wayside can be detrimental for your finances—the same study also said 41% of women wish they had done more investing.

In honor of Women’s History Month, CSD Learns presented a workshop series hosted by Roxann Richards and full of female financial experts to kickstart these discussions on popular topics like tax season and stimulus checks, the pandemic’s influence on the real estate market, and all the hype surrounding Bitcoin.

Each week, Roxann was joined by financial experts, ready to equip everybody with the knowledge that leads to financial freedom. Ready to be a Bo$$ with your finances? Check out the video recordings of each workshop below!
