It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of LearnVest—this aesthetically-pleasing financial site revolutionized my life this year by helping me get a grasp on my finances (yes, in my 30s—it takes that long for some of us!). Well, it turns out they’re fans of mine, too, and I’ve been asked to speak on a tastemaker panel at their Los Angeles event on September 24!! I am so thrilled to be a part of this event featuring several inspiring female entrepreneurs, and I hope you can come out and join us and say hello (and it’s only $25 if you pre-register!). Click past the jump to read a bit more about the event if you’re interested, and I’ll see you there! 


Are you financially fearless? Well, what are you waiting for ...?!

Last year at LearnVest LIVE—our first-ever live event—nearly 1,000 LearnVesters spent an evening in NYC learning expert lifestyle and money tips from big names such as Cosmopolitan editor in chief Joanna Coles, “Top Chef’s” Gail Simmons and HGTV’s Genevieve Gorder.

The event was such a success that we’re thrilled to announce the return of LearnVest LIVE, sponsored by Fidelity Investments. This year, it gets even better—we’re taking our expert advice on the road.

Join us in New York City or Los Angeles for an evening of money advice from a LearnVest Planning Services certified financial planner™, lifestyle tips from more A-list tastemakers—and the opportunity to meet and mingle with your fellow LearnVesters.

This year, our theme is “Financially Fearless,” and we know you’re ready for that challenge. So come. Bring your friends. Learn. And be inspired.

Experts. Some of our favorite role models will be sharing their stories and giving you a peek into what inspires them. To name a few:
