Goodnights at Home with BLPC Playgroup

Goodnights at Home with BLPC Playgroup

Friday September 18th, 2020, 8:00PM - Friday September 18th, 2020, 10:30PM

Goodnights is usually a night when we gather in person to talk about issues and how to make change. Sometimes we swap clothes and books, make repairs on our things and just generally boost each other for our life journey!

Let's try recreate it at home. We might just want to play a game, have a wine or a whine, or sip a tea in adult company?

Please save the date and let us know what you're feeling.

Take back financial security with a bangin’ budget!

Take back financial security with a bangin’ budget!

Wednesday July 1st, 2020, 7:30PM - Wednesday July 1st, 2020, 9:00PM

Online on Zoom

MEMBERS ONLY EVENT!

About the workshop:
I can’t promise to make your finances fun but I can promise that you’ll feel lighter and more capable of fun once we’ve wrangled your numbers into tangible information. This workshop will help you set up your family finances in a way that gives you greater control and security. You’ll have more information about your family's financial position than you ever thought possible and you’ll be ready to manage whatever financial situations come your way.

We’re currently in a time where, with every new announcement, comes huge changes to our financial situation. Take for instance the new announcements relating to childcare fees. The current recession that’s finally hit, no doubt brings many unknowns and potential anxieties with it. Our best chance at managing these changes with a sense of calm and security is by having complete understanding of our financial position so we know what choices to make next.

In this workshop we’ll define your core financial values so we can create a shame free budget that aligns with your beliefs and goals. We’ll use a range of approaches to interpret the information your budget provides so you can have a clearer understanding of what the essential items are. The aim of the workshop is to leave you feeling a sense of control and understanding over your financial position. I want you to feel secure and confident to not only manage your financial future but make it an empowering and rewarding experience too.
