Getting started with investing does not have to be intimidating–and it’s definitely not just for the wealthy! Join Financial Wellness Counselor Rebecca Selkowe, J.D., AFC®, and David Maurice Sharp, author of The Thriving Artist, for this informative and engaging webinar specifically designed for creative professionals.


In Part 1 of this webinar, you will learn the elements of a sound financial plan, including assessing your comfort level with risk, the basics of different types of investments, and ideas for creating a portfolio with limited and varying income.

In Part 2 of this webinar, we will explore the pieces that comprise our later-life financial resources, including individual retirement accounts, social security income and Union pensions. 


Demystify the jargon and understand how to begin (or continue!) to integrate wealth-building into your financial life. We will also cover what you need to know about investing amid the Covid-19 crisis.
