Using Your Instincts: All Gain, No Pain with Presenter Erin Werde
5:00 -7:00 pm

There is often an overlooked facet of the mind: conation. Conation is defined as action derived by instinct; it is that ‘gut’ or innate pull within all of us. The only way to measure conation is through the Kolbe Index. As a Financial Planner, this information is critical in understanding yourself, your team and your clients. Attend this workshop to learn about your instinct, and how to leverage your talent for the highest levels of productivity.

Golden Valley Country Club
Expanding Your Value as a Retirement Coach
Presenter Mitch Anthony
7:30 -10:00 AM

This introductory course by Mitch Anthony will explore the knowledge required to become expert in the modern retirement conversation. Mitch’s presentation will teach the tools to successfully handle the issues in achieving a great retirement. Many of us are facing a very different retirement reality than previous generations—failing pensions, an endangered social security system, and inadequate savings. We have been forced to face the fact that retirement may never happen, or that it will take place much later in life than expected. Mitch Anthony shows you how to take command of your own future by focusing on a balanced approach and living the best life you can with the resources you have.
