IMG_4213The first stop for the Finances De•mys•ti•fied: Social Money Movement tour was at the modern Fashion Forty Lounge in New York City. There was much excitement and anticipation throughout the day as the Finances Demystified team awaited the arrival of the panel experts and guests.

Ever since Dominique Broadway developed Finances De•mys•ti•fied, monthly open conversations about money that are held at swanky venues throughout DC, she always envisioned spreading the motivating and encouraging words of financial freedom to the masses. Last night, several talented financial professionals and entrepreneurs were invited to help convey this message in an engaging Q&A  format. The panel consisted of:

This turned out to be an exciting event that showcased the insight of these experts. Dominique moderated the discussion while guests enjoyed the signature cocktails. Our experts took turns answering the guests questions. The discussion topics  ranged from tackling student loan debt, methods to paying off various types  of debt, to why you need a financial planner. Guests were also given direct advice on avoiding the common traps from interest rates, FICO scores and bankruptcy.

At the end of successful panel discussion, an interesting announcement was made.  This was the literally the first time the panel had met. Afterwards, intense conversations were held between all the young professionals with their swag bags in hand. Finances De•mys•ti•fied has truly taken a unique approach to financial literacy.  Next stop, Washington, DC & Atlanta!
