The First Meeting
Check out Jean's suggestions on how to structure your Money Group meeting and get the most out of it!
As you get to know the members of your Money Group, you may decide that you want to incorporate your own welcome, your own oath. But for now, I encourage all of you to use mine:
I am here because I choose to be here. I know that by spending a little time every week/month focused on my finances, I will feel safer, more secure, more independent, more useful, more confident and yes, more wealthy. I do this not only to only gain more control over my money, but more control over my life. Because that will free me to focus on the other, important things in my life. And that will make me rich in an entirely different, but completely significant and earth-shattering way.
Each meeting of the Money Group will start with a four-part warm-up.
Each curriculum will follow the following format:
At the next meeting, share with the group what you've accomplished and learned. What things have presented a challenge for you? Then go on to the next topic!
Set measurable goals. Before the meeting ends, go around the circle one last time. Everyone needs to state a goal—out loud—to be recorded by themselves and the group leader. If you're not sure how to get there, now is the time to ask for help from the group. At the next meeting, your groupies will hold you accountable!
