10 Ways to Take Control of Your Future Today

Planning for the future can be tough. We all face different challenges in our day-to-day lives and could use some help when it comes to planning – especially financial planning. Of course, when we think “financial planning” we seem to think “retirement,” but that isn’t always the case. Do these sound familiar?

  • I’m caught between saving money for my children’s college fund and paying off my own student debt. And then there’s braces! How can I possibly do it all?
  • Right now, all my money gets put back into building my business. Where can I find money left over for me to plan for my future?
  • I’m in good health now but everyone in my family has had issues as they get older. How can we make sure we don’t have to sell the farm to pay the hospital bill?

Bring these questions and your dreams and join Farm Credit East consultants Keith Dickinson and Erin Pirro at our Ten Ways to Take Control of Your Future Today seminar, and find solutions you’re looking for.

We’re offering this one-day seminar in the following four locations. Each seminar will begin with a continental breakfast at 8:30am followed by the seminar at 9:00am and will conclude by 3:00pm. Lunch will be provided.
