You’re about to get way more than eye-candy and glamour at the Cosmo #FunFearlessLife event.
Sure, the Editor in Chief, Joanna Coles, may welcome us to the stage being carried by a gaggle of hunks, and there will be a ton of celebrities and stars talking about their latest and greatest projects, but at the core of the event is true wisdom and inspiration.
The idea to create Mo’ Money, Mo’ Progress started at this event.
There was a money panel, and quite honestly I was dreading it.
“Ughhhh, why put this buzzkill panel into the event?” I literally thought this to myself. Little did I know this panel would ignite a new passion in me.
A key moment was when Alexa Von Tobel, the founder of LearnVest, asked the audience of mostly women, ‘Did you learn about money in school?”
Maybe 10% of 2,000 people raised their hands.
I got full body chills and a realization: I’m not alone and omg we have a huge problem on our hands.
Here’s the link to our video for our launch party where I explain the catalyst and you see our first event!
With easy access to credit cards, and living in a world where it’s easier than ever to buy… it’s more important than EVER to have the tools to be able to handle our money (and learn how to make more of it!)
It’s even harder for our generation as many of us come out of school thousands of dollars in debt.
Forbes recently shared that student loan debt is over $1.2 trillion dollars right now. The average student loan debt is $26,000, and one in 10 graduates will owe more than $40,000. In the US it’s not uncommon for students in certain fields to have their own personal debt totalling more than $100,000. Dear God.
In full disclosure, The Sisterpack (aka us four sisters) owed collectively $112,928.64 in student loan debts. I have been paying mine off for more than five years and cut it in half, but collectively we’ve barely made a dent and still owe nearly $90,000.
So I wanted to share this to highly encourage you to step outside of your comfort zone and join me in New York on November 14th to participate in this game-changing event.
Hope to see you there!
