Event Details

You take care of your family, children, partners, manage your career and community. You might even fit in exercise, social time with friends and eating healthy. That’s great.  

But something is missing. 

Three essential components are often overlooked by women: financial well-being, legal well-being, and self-care.

* Does dealing with your finances seem intimidating?

* Are you prepared legally for today .. and for what may lie ahead?

* Do you know how to stay grounded and attuned to your inner compass while juggling all of the above?


Financial Health

Do you understand your budget for today and the future? Do you have clarity on how much you need for retirement … and how to get it? Do you have a plan for managing your assets?

Legal Health

Do you have a clear understanding of your personal and shared financial holdings? Do you have an estate plan, power of attorney, or health care directives? What legal protections are (or may be) needed in the context of employment, marriage, children, schools … and more?

Self Care and Balance

Do you have the skills to manage anxiety when you feel overwhelmed? How are you nourishing your body, mind, heart and spirit? Can you identify any ways in which you may sabotage your own self care and well-being? Do you set healthy boundaries? What kind of support do you need in order to feel more grounded, present and balanced?


Join a team of experts who will help you navigate it all. You’ll leave armed with a plan and the confidence to tackle it, mindfully, with direction, understanding and support … your own personal inner compass!

  • Understanding your budget for today and the future
  • Clarity on how much you need for retirement and how to ask for it
  • A plan on managing your assets (without anyone selling you investment advice!)
  • When, where and how to get the legal assistance you need
  • How to eat better, sleep better and manage your anxiety and energy levels 
  • How to get appropriate support from your friends and family 

Join Three Experts:

Galia Gichon - Independent Financial Expert with over 20+ year financial services experience.

Margie Jacobson - Attorney and Trained Mediator

Michelle Didner - Meditation and Yoga Teacher, Holistic Health Coach and Workshop/Retreat Leader.
