How Getting Your Money House in Order Can Create a More Loving Relationship

Tuesday, February 10, 2015
12-1PM PT (3-4PM ET)  |  FREE for WITI Members ($50 Nonmembers)

Presenter: Natalie Pace

You want a loving family and a happy home but money can get in the way. Money is the #1 thing that couples fight about the most so imagine what can happen if you get your money house in order! Healthy fiscal habits create a solid foundation upon which you can co-create a sanctuary home with your sacred companion.

Here are 6 Ways to Fix Your Budget, Debt, Investments and Spending Habits so That Your Love Can Flow More Easily (this Valentine’s Day):

1. Shift from Spender/Debt Consciousness to Investor/Wealth Consciousness. Investing in a great suit can mean a raise and a promotion, however being a shopaholic is the leading cause of debt. How do you determine what’s an investment from what’s a harmful addiction?

2. Stop making everyone else rich, from the taxman, to the insurance salesman, to the utility company, and start compounding your own gains. If a NASA electrical engineer can spend 10% of what you do on his electricity bill, so can you. If Mitt Romney can pay 14% in taxes, so can you. Set up your life so that you pay less for everything automatically.

3. Rise Above the Wall Street Roller coaster instead of Keeping Up With the Joneses. A few simple, easy tricks can allow you to profit from bull markets and protect yourself from recessions. These tricks are rarely featured on the Mainstream Media and are often overlooked by commission-based broker-salesmen. Did you know that recessions occur on average every 5 years and that 2015 marks the 6th year of the current bull market? Are you safe? ​

4. Drink Your Café Latte and Take Dream Vacations. Learn how addressing the big-ticket items in your budget can afford you more fun. Fun offers so many health benefits by flushing your system with happy hormones. It can also rejuvenate your love affair provided you don’t bury yourself in debt in the process.

5. Health is the Best Health Insurance. Are you over-insured, while denying yourself the investments in health and happiness that will reduce your health care costs forever? Learn why your life insurance payments could be killing you.

6. Debt Reduction Strategies that work faster than any other fix. Americans owe almost $12 trillion in debt. If you’re getting your Debt Reduction plan from the bank, debt collector or credit card company, then you are playing into their hand, at your own expense. Get the real score on FICO and more. This information is publicly available, however, it is not easy to find.

Career Success for Introverts

Wednesday, March 4, 2015
12-1PM PT (3-4PM ET)  |  FREE for WITI Members ($50 Nonmembers)

Presenter: Dr. Miriam Reiss

Most women in technology are introverts in personality style. Introverts are often perceived as more subdued in the work environment, more hesitant to initiate and less willing to speak up in professional situations. This behavior can influence their perception by both men and women in the workplace, impact the nature and scope of job responsibilities, and have significant consequences for salary progression and career advancement.

In this webinar, Dr. Reiss will deal with core aspects of the introvert personality, including subtle areas that are not generally addressed. We will focus on style in the workplace and discuss the nature of style malleability. Dr. Reiss will introduce breakthrough strategies and tools for success with the introvert style, and participants will have the opportunity to ask specific style-related questions and receive coaching from a master career coach specializing in style-aligned performance.

Dr. Miriam Reiss helps women in technology grow their skills, maximize their professional success, and increase their level of sustained self-confidence and well-being. As co-author of "Branding & Marketing Mastery," Miriam is an executive coach, former marketing director and consultant. Her coaching clients have ranged from biotech professionals to women in engineering, at companies including Boeing and Microsoft. Miriam has presented at WITI webinars and the WITI annual conference. She is Past President, Washington State Chapter, International Coach Federation (ICF), and a Master Certified Coach, the ICF's senior ranking. Miriam holds a doctorate from Peace Theological Seminary, degrees from Cornell and Columbia Universities, and a master's degree in spiritual psychology from the University of Santa Monica.
