Money Circle | How to Plan for Holiday Spending

Money Circle Planning and Saving for Holiday Spending.png

Let's try this again! This event is the meetup rescheduled from September. It's probably too late to plan for this year's holidays, but if you come, you'll be completely prepared for next year!

It's important to plan for holiday spending months in advance. Otherwise, you’ll get to December and have no money set aside for travel and gifts. The holidays are expensive, stressful times. There’s a lot of planning and spending that might not fit into your budget. But there are ways to set yourself up for success. Join Money Circle to learn how you can plan ahead and reduce (or even eliminate) the financial stress that comes up around the holidays.

Money Circle | How to Ask for a Raise

Money Circle How to Ask for a Raise.png

If you're like many people, the end of the calendar year also means it's performance review time. This time can be stressful, both because you're nervous about your own review, but also because asking for a raise can be uncomfortable and scary. But no one will advocate for you if you don't advocate for yourself, so it's important to be prepared to negotiate and make your case.

Even if you've already been through your review for the year, it's always a good time to brush up on how to ask for a raise. Join Money Circle this month and you'll walk away with concrete ways to ask for a raise and back up the ask with concrete evidence that you deserve it.

This will be my second BullCon, can't wait to present on this topic!

A CAREER CONFERENCE FOR FEMINISTS WHO WANT TO MAKE THE WORLD AND THE WORKPLACE BETTER

Come to the 6th annual BullCon, where there is no reason you can't have a roundtable on sexism in the workplace followed by champagne. Literally none.

This is a conference for ambitious feminists who want to do their own thing, effectively and with verve.

For some of us, that means becoming CEO. For some of us, that means starting our own business. For most of us, it means doing really amazing work in whatever field we're in, while changing the world a little for the better. GetBullish and the Bullish Conference have been bringing it since 2013.

✨ About Feminist Founder: "The Circle" ✨ 

Back in 2015 I was 25 and had just launched a social media company and was ready for the challenges that came with being a businesswoman in a patriarchal world. I was not prepared for the complexities of the entrepreneurial journey and what it really took to get a business off the ground.

It's easy to feel alone when you're self-employed, especially if you work from home. I found myself yearning for a community of trusted peers whom I could learn from and grow with.

In 2016, Feminist Founder: “The Circle” was born to serve other fierce female founders like me struggling to navigate life as an entrepreneur. We meet monthly to:

• Offer advice support and honest feedback
• Hold each other accountable to goals
• Collaborate on co-hosting events or attend events as a group
• Share profitability, marketing and craft strategies
• Craft our ideal work-to-life ratio

Equal Pay Day for Black Women

Equal Pay Day for Black Women 2.png

Equal Pay Day marks the point in the year at which women's earnings will finally match what men made the previous year. This year, April 10th signified how far women collectively needed to work into 2018 to catch up to what men were paid in 2018. 

Because Black women face an even larger wage gap, they need to work until August 7, 2018; to match what men earned the previous year.

On Black Equal Pay Day, Lean In DC is partnering with Flight Wine Bar and area leaders to draw attention to the unfairness of earning even less.

Join us there on August 7th from 6-9 p.m., to honor black entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and advocates leading in their careers and the charge for equal pay.  All women and their advocates (including men!) are encouraged to attend.

Money Circle: How to Make a Budget

Money Circle.png

Having a working budget is key to being financially stable. You have to know what is going in and out each month. But creating a budget and sticking to it is not exactly straightforward or easy. Many people simply don't know where to start, and need a little bit of guidance. I want to help you figure out how to make a budget that works for you! So come to Money Circle and together we'll map out budgets that we'll actually stick to.

Bring a list of your expenses and income. It will also be helpful if you have an average of how much you typically spend outside of bills each month. Bonus points: look up the dates that most of your bills are due.

The Emotional Labor Union: Gender Pay Gap

the gender pay gap.jpg

Fact: Women with graduate and undergraduate degrees represent about 50% of the workforce

Fact: Women are often the sole or co-breadwinner in 40% of American families with children

Fact: Women outpace men in educational achievement

Fact: Women control the majority of household spending

Fact: Despite the above accomplishments, for every $1 a man earns, the gender wage breaks down to:

  • $.87 = Asian-American Women

  • $.79 = Caucasian Women

  • $.63 = African-American/Black Women

  • $.57 = Native American Women

  • $.54 = Latina Women


The wage gap has stagnated since 2007 and, on average, the gap in earnings translates to about $10,086 each year, leaving women and their families shortchanged and stressed out. While the enforcement of the Equal Pay Act, civil rights laws, and access to reproductive health care have helped chip away at the wage gap, it’s essential that we continue to demand equal pay for equal work.

If you’re within a certain age range, you probably feel like everyone in the world is getting married at the same time. I hear you! A few years ago, I went to EIGHT weddings in one year.

Money Circle - How to Deal with Credit Card Debt

Money Circle - How to Deal with Credit Card Debt.png

As of December 2017, there was over $1 trillion in revolving debt in the United States.

But the fact is, many, many people are dealing with credit card debt in the United States.

Yet, it’s unclear for many people how to manage that debt. And many feel alone and ashamed of their debt. But clearly, if you’re in debt, you are far from alone! Join us at Money Circle to learn strategies and solutions to tackle your credit card debt. Don’t be afraid to share your balances and struggles with spending and debt.
