Speaker Topics

Maggie is happy to speak about many different topics related to money, but these are some of her specific talks:

How Working Women Can Manage Money At Any Age

There’s no magical age when you can stop thinking about money and setting financial goals. At every stage of your life and career, there are important financial steps to take and challenges to overcome. This talk will break down the most important financial considerations and decisions decade by decade and cover topics like saving for retirement, negotiating a raise, creating and sticking to a budget, paying off high-interest debt, and more.

Building Your Financial Confidence

One thing that holds women back from getting their money right is the feeling that they don’t know what they’re doing. This feeling can lead to discomfort and a lack of confidence, which can trap you in a vicious cycle of avoiding your financial issues, making the wrong money decisions, and falling into debt. This talk shows you how to build your financial confidence by getting to know your numbers, forgiving yourself for past financial mistakes and making better money decisions.

Getting Your Money Right

Want to improve your finances but not sure where to start? You’re absolutely not alone. In this workshop, you’ll learn what you need to do from start to finish to take control of your money, so you can get out of debt, start saving, grow your emergency fund, and plan for your future. This topic is designed for those who are just starting out on their financial journey, so it is easy to comprehend, with tangible, actionable next steps to take away.

Getting Financially Naked With Your Partner

You know that communication is one of the most important things in a romantic relationship. If you don’t have good communication, it’s hard to have a secure foundation in the relationship. You also might know that money conflict is one of the top causes of relationship strife. Plus, money makes or breaks our ability to reach our goals and it determines what we’re able to do in life. That’s why it’s so important to talk to your life partner about money. This talk will help you learn how to have constructive money conversations with your partner, set goals together, and create a plan to reach those goals together.

Workshops

Maggie is able to tailor her workshops to your specific needs, but her existing workshops are:

Jumpstarting Your Financial Wellness

Financial literacy is not required learning in school, so you likely grew up without a clear sense of right and wrong when it comes to your money. Knowing this, it can be difficult to manage your money in a way that sets you up for success. This workshop will help you get clarity on your budget, create a plan to pay down debt and build up savings, and feel confident that you’re making the right financial decisions moving forward.

Aligning Your Values With Your Money

Budgeting isn’t just about the numbers. It’s also about feeling energized by and emotionally connected to your financial goals. That’s why it’s so important to align your values with those goals. This workshop will show you how to identify your values and create financial goals that align with them so you can stay motivated and consistent along the way.

Asking For More At Work

The gender and racial wage gaps are alive and well. And while our government and businesses need to do the bulk of the work to fix this, the rest of us don’t have to sit idly by while we wait. This workshop will show you how to identify your value and contributions at work, research the market value of your position, and have the income conversation, whether you’re interviewing for a new job or negotiating your current salary with your boss.

Making and Breaking the Budget

The traditional approach to budgeting - where you set strict spending limitations and cut out all things that bring joy - is broken. And it definitely doesn’t work for young professionals and millennials who want their money to allow them freedom, security, and happiness. We need a new way to approach budgeting, and that means creating a budget that works for you and your life, goals, and values. This workshop will help you identify your values, determine your goals, and create a budget that you’ll actually want to stick to.
