Financial Organization Workshop for Women
Mission Wealth partnered with Sara Caputo from Radiant Organizing and Kelly Marsh from Broadview Mortgage to host a unique and interactive workshop discussing the best practices for organizing and systematizing your financial life.

The workshop appealed to women with a wide range of organizing abilities, from highly organized types with pre-existing systems in place to keep track of their important documents to those who battle a chaotic, disorganized house, office, and desk.

At the workshop, guests learned which documents are most important to hold onto, the best ways to store them, and how long to keep each type. Also, they were taught strategies for expense tracking and they were provided with tips on how to implement a digital (i.e., paperless) file system.

This was the first time Mission Wealth has put on a workshop like this and it was a huge success. We look forward to holding other similar events in the near future.
