Why do 70% of Americans live month to month and 91% don’t have more than $100,000 saved for retirement? The answer is fairly simple, we don’t really understand how to create wealth. Oh, we think we understand how to create wealth. We think all we need to do is save more, spend less, and not do anything really crazy. In many ways, most Americans think correctly about money. The problem is in how we feel about money, which is to say we often don’t or aren’t aware of how we feel.
Building wealth is not about your IQ, it’s about your EI, that is your emotional intelligence. Author Dan Goleman in his book, The Emotionally Intelligent Workplace says that IE trumps IQ when it comes to job performance. The most successful CEO’s score high in EI.
Our years of research and working with the blending of EI and finances finds that people with high EI also make better money decisions. Making good money decisions is a 21st century survival skill.
Creating Wealth and Financial Freedom By Expanding Your Emotional Intelligence is all about giving you better tools to create more abundance, wealth, and ease in your life. Rick Kahler co-created the concepts used in this workshop, which The Wall Street Journal (September 25, 2003) referred to as “an innovative effort that combines experiential therapy with nuts and bolts of financial planning”.
The workshop uses researched techniques designed to increase emotional intelligence. We will help you identify the beliefs and feelings about money that keep you stuck in making poor money decisions, or that may simply be keeping you poor. Even people who have enough money can find themselves bankrupt in emotional intelligence that may result in overspending, underspending, risk taking, workaholism, an unfulfilling job, and poor investments.
Dave Jetson and Rick Kahler, two pioneers in blending financial planning with emotional intelligence, have partnered together to offer a most unique experience for individuals and couples to deal with how money shapes their lives. The ”Creating Wealth and Financial Freedom By Expanding Your Emotional Intelligence” is a 4-day workshop that helps individuals and couples better understand and transform their emotional money intelligence.
This workshop starts at 8:00 am on Friday, May 17th, and ends at 5pm on Monday, May 20th. The cost is $2,750 per individual and $4,950 per couple that includes meals and lodging! The workshop will be held in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota at the new Terra Sancta Retreat Center in Rapid City.
