Speaking Engagements

We have found that in the underserved special needs community, individuals with disabilities and their care teams are hungry for financial advice. We love to listen to your stories and decode money at the same time.

We come to organizations, conferences, and events to give presentations and have conversations about important money-related issues that are of very significant concern to those involved with special needs. These topics include but are not limited to modern money skills, government benefits, retirement planning, estate planning, and education planning. We are always open to new ideas for things to talk about.
