There is a problem that is taking over all generations in America. It’s the elephant in every room, on every social media page, and in every workplace. No one wants to talk about debt, credit, or financial problems and it’s creating problems in all areas of life. Jen, along with her elephant, Bernadebt (Burn-A-Debt), brings this topic to the forefront so that we can all understand why not talking about it is actually the biggest problem.
Productivity – did you know that employees spend over 150 hours a year of company time working on their own personal financial issues? Financial stress costs companies $7,000 per year, per employee.
Relationships – money is the leading cause of divorce and relationship problems. One of the biggest problems? No one talks about it. We’re going to talk about it!
Health – 70% of illnesses are caused by stress. Finances are the number one cause of stress. Your debt and credit problems are literally making you sick. Let’s talk about solutions.
This talk is an innovative approach that examines a number of typical financial situations and points out a glaring disconnect in our society. Let’s talk about the elephant in the room.
The Facebook phenomenon. You go on Facebook and everyone is talking about how great their lives are. Where they went on vacation, what new car they bought, where their kids are going to college. No one is posting about their financial problems. If they do, friends may try to cheer them up briefly, but people tend to hide “negativity” from their feeds. It can be very isolating to think that there is no one out there struggling with finances. In this talk, Jen shares several stories of common debt and credit problems people face and the types of solutions that are out there. Many of her clients would have been much better off getting advice a lot earlier, but they were scared and didn’t realize all of the traps out there. Stories include:
1. The senior citizen vs. the debt settlement company: Scams, fraud, and lies told to a 73 year old woman to get her to sign the contract.
2. The working professional vs. the pennies on the dollar internet tax resolution company: Why people turn to late night TV and the internet to solve debt and tax problems.
3. The millennial (and her parents) vs. student loans: Really, what can you do with $150,000 in student loans and a bachelor’s degree in __ ?
This is a frank talk designed to put the audience into the shoes of most Americans. The point of the discussion is to ultimately figure out that we’re not alone and that there are all kinds of solutions out there if you know where to look.
Credit scores are often a mystery, with lots of misinformation circulating. During this talk, Jen covers intentional actions to take to improve your credit score, understand what affects the score (and what does not), along with strategies for improving common issues related to credit. Credit scores can play a large part in the interest rates you get on mortgages, car loans, even insurance premiums, so making the most of your credit score can save you thousands of dollars.
1. Information – credit reports and scoring. What are the best ways to get a credit report?
2. Actions – reading the report and understanding what goes into the score. Are you doing things that actually lower your score?
3. Future - planning for future needs. How long is this going to take?
This program busts the myths and common misconceptions out there with useful information that can immediately be applied to almost any situation.
Do you know what to do when your credit card is compromised or your identity is stolen? In this talk, Jen goes over a number of ways to protect private information, including credit, financial, and medical details, to reduce the risk of identity theft and fraud. However, even with the best precautions, it can still happen to almost anyone. We'll review how to figure out you've been a victim and the steps to take to try and fix the unfortunate situation.
1. Protecting yourself, your family, and your private information.
2. Red flags and identifying the problem.
3. Immediate steps to take when fraud is discovered.
4. Long-term actions and ongoing monitoring details.
After Equifax, it is more likely than not that your identity has already been compromised. Do you know what to do when it happens?Coming Soon!Coming Soon!
“I invited Jen Lee to present to a group of allied professionals on the topic “Are You or Your Employees Dealing with Financial Stress?” Jen’s expertise and perspective are unique and extend well beyond bankruptcy. The presentation was thorough, well-organized and extremely engaging, generating a lively discussion among the participants. The emphasis on the range of alternatives to bankruptcy was extremely helpful for my audience and their clients, and I strongly recommend Jen Lee as a speaker.”
