Program Length: 2-4 hours
Ideal audience size: 20-100
Burn - Americans are immersed in a culture where 70% of the economy is based on consumption. Relentless messages are saying Buy! Buy! Buy! This program provides templates for designing an intentional, realistic, and sustainable lifestyle within the context of these relentless messages.
Assistance - Paradoxically, acting based on the needs of others helps us to fulfill our own most basic need: meaning and significance.
Savings - Studies show that most households have no plan for dealing with an "unexpected" $400 emergency. Learn the profound importance of delayed gratification and the power of liquidity.
Improvement - Education is necessary but no longer sufficient to compete in the global economy. Discover a practical perspective on this important topic.
Citizenship - Federal taxes. State Taxes. Municipal taxes. Sales taxes. These outlays can and should be minimized, but cannot be avoided. Gain a fact-based understanding without sanctimony or spin of what you're getting for your money.
Most financial education programs are oriented to middle-class wage earners recovering from difficulties that resulted from bad decisions or bad luck or both. As it should be. Meanwhile, those who are - or aspire to be - at the top of the income pyramid ($250K+) have the smarts to be strong earners but may lack the wisdom to deal with the challenges unique to high income career tracks. This program is for them.
Outside of medicine, law, and a few other professions requiring advanced degrees, many high-income earners face drastic month-to-month and even year-to-year income fluctuations. These highly-compensated individuals often derive the bulk of their income from commissions, at-risk bonuses, or earnings from their own businesses. Many have careers that require them to survive gig to gig.
Even high income earners often do not have a strategy for skillfully integrating money into their lives. What can and cannot be bought? What decisions about money have already been made on our behalf? How can financial resources be allocated in a way that induces contentment instead of chaos? This program uses the memorable acronym B A S I C to provide a useful framework for understanding this tool that is so central to our lives - money
