Transforming Money Into Conscious Wealth

November 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free, Registration Required

Generosity during times of recession can seem challenging when the market is contracting. However, no matter what the market is doing, you can still positively impact the individuals, families, and communities you care about without fearing financial scarcity.

Transforming Money Into Conscious Wealth: Cultivating Abundance is in interactive presentation that helps you transform your relationship with money into a mindset of abundance.  Through a purpose-driven framework, Conscious Wealth Advisor Brandon Hatton will lead you through hands-on learning that helps you gain:

  • Insight into the role money plays in your life and the communities you serve
  • The role that the dualities of scarcity and abundance play in your life and how they affect your giving mindset
  • How “having enough” awakens an ability to focus on what matters: a life of growth and fulfillment

The outcome is a re-established perspective on what being wealthy means and how, through Conscious Wealth, generosity is possible across any market condition.

 

Brandon Hatton is an investment advisor who endeavors to help his clients live abundant intentional lives. He specializes in family dynamics around multi-generational wealth and advises clients who seek to use their financial assets to help make a positive impact through investments and philanthropy. Brandon is the author of Conscious Wealth: Money, Investing, and a Financial Awakening for the Person Who Has It All.
