12 Mar BANKING FUTURISTS, FINANCE KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: MAKING YOUR MONEY GO FURTHER
Banking futurists and finance keynote speakers make no secret about it: Money should be a major topic of conversation in uncertain times, especially if you need to save close to $1 million (or, failing that, 12X your salary) if you ever plan to retire. Doubly so as of late, with nearly eight in ten of us currently living paycheck to paycheck, making the need for financial education even more crucial, as we at the Intl. Association for Business Development remind millions each year through books, speeches, podcasts, and video programs. (And our banking futurists and finance keynote speakers often point out in virtual speaking programs, seminars, and workshops.)
With 40% of Americans now unable to handle so much as a $400 emergency, and over 30 million having recently been unemployed amid a pandemic and ongoing global economic uncertainty, it bears reiterating. If you’ve been putting off sitting down to map out a budget and think about where you can start putting more money back in your pocket each month, it pays to start getting more proactive here.
After all, with economic and geopolitical uncertainty only continuing to run rampant, there’s never been a more pressing time to think about how to get your budget right and become more financially literate. Happily, taking back control of your finances, and learning to stay one step ahead of the market doesn’t have to be as challenging as you might suspect. As we often like to remind folks, the smarter you are about where you choose to invest your income, the more readily you can start making your money work harder for you – not vice-versa.
That said, in the coming weeks and months, our banking futurists and finance keynote speakers will be exploring just a few of many places that you’ll want to consider parking your cash if you want to improve your odds of breaking the bank, and hitting it big faster by learning to invest more confidently in yourself.
In other words, stay tuned for ideas on where to best put your money to work for your career and business going forward.
