Is There Really a Connection Between Mental Wellness & Financial Wellness? Mental Wellness & Financial Wellness go hand in hand and as a society we are talking more about mental health in the workplace but we also need to be discussing financial wellness. In surveys where they ask employees what causes you stress, the answer that tops the charts is consistently personal finance. In a recent survey conducted by a large company, they found three of the top four stressors are: • Personal and household finances (45 per cent) • Budgeting (32 per cent) • Unexpected finances (31 per cent) As well, one-third of respondents reported feeling insecure about their overall financial health. Personal finance gets into our life; it gets into our sleep, into our self-esteem, into our relationships. In this presentation, Jane will offer up important insights, tips and strategies as to what is important for professionals to keep top of mind when working with clients and their families to help minimize this stress.

You need Jane!
If you are in need of a jolt to your current thinking, work ethic or approach to your business.........you need Jane! We were fortunate enough to have Jane speak informally at a small gathering the evening before our meeting. One of the attendees from the evening gathering spoke up the next day about the changes she had implemented after speaking with Jane that had provided positive results within hours. You can't ask for more than that; for someone to take away something so positive and see results almost immediately. That's the impact Jane has and once you have heard her passion and perspective you will see things differently and that is truly a great thing. Thank you Jane!
