Financial security depends on more than a woman's marital or job status. Having true financial independence has much more to do with taking control of the finances you have -- setting financial goals and learning to use financial strategies that will help you meet your goals.

Karen Goersch of Price Financial Group, LLC, will discuss these ideas and present strategies to get you started at a special workshop for women at the Darien Community Association. Every woman -- single, married, working or widowed-- who wants to be financially secure is invited to attend.

Goersch is a private wealth manager with Price Financial Group, LLC of Wilton. A former CPA, she is a registered rep with LPL Financial and a licensed investment advisor with Private Advisor Group, LLC and brings a wealth of both corporate and personal financial experience from years working at Coopers & Lybrand and NYNEX (Verizon). Her philosophy is founded on helping clients understand their needs, building a personal financial plan and determining what investments are suitable for each client -- from asset allocation strategy to income planning to individual investment selection.

This interactive workshop will be presented on four consecutive Wednesdays, starting Jan. 11 from noon to 2 p.m. The workshop fee for DCA members is $65, $85 for non-members, which includes lunch and a comprehensive workbook with 150 pages of ideas and strategies.
