PERSONAL FINANCE FOR GEN Z
Several people have reached out about doing classes (via Zoom) for young adults between age 18 and 29. Let us know if you or someone you know is interested, as we are still gauging interest.
Currently, we are finishing up our latest session of Personal Finance for Teens classes. We are taking names for the next session, dates TBD, likely later in the Autumn. Once again, let us know if you know someone who is interested.
For students that attended the four sessions of Personal Finance for Teens classes this summer, we recently held a 2 hour "Bonus Session" dedicated solely to investing in stocks. This class built on where we left off in the personal finance classes.
We are hoping to continue these sessions with the same group of students in the near future.
Lastly, we want to share a little bit of our personal story.
We are a husband and wife team that met as rookie financial advisors 19 years ago. (Check out the picture below from our old office in Kansas).
As you can see, a lot has changed in 19 years! Below is the updated photo for our investment advisory firm Wenrich Wealth.
One thing that hasn't changed, is that we truly love to help people. Our hope is that through our book, classes, podcast and social media, we are able to simplify the complexities of personal finance and investing in a fun and easy to consume manner.
That's it for now! Thanks for reading!
