The past couple years I’ve been doing a lot more live events. I’ve organized round table discussions for female freelancers, spoken on ABLE accounts and gathered audiences of women together to talk books and money.
It’s not something I thought I’d be doing eight years ago when I started blogging anonymously, but it turns out it’s something I enjoy.
The only bummer about doing these live events is that when you’re in one city…you’re in one city. I can’t invite all of you to come. I mean, I could, but I’d have to be hungry for a lot of rejection.
The live event where everyone can come.
That’s why I’m super excited to let you know I’ll be speaking at the Mamas Talk Money Summit.
In my session, we’ll be covering finances when you’re raising a special needs kiddo, which includes things like ABLE accounts, but also includes things like Medicaid access, maximizing resources extended to your child in IEP meetings and more.
My topic is very niche. The idea is to speak to all moms, so there are five days packed full of content about being a mother and managing money; there’s something for everyone!
There are two best parts:
- The summit is happening entirely online, so EVERYONE CAN COME!*
- If you’re watching live, the summit is 100% free, so EVERYONE CAN COME!*
You can signup to register for free here.
Sessions I’m excited for.
There are five full days of speakers for this event. You can catch me on Friday at 2:15 p.
There are other speakers you won’t want to miss, either. Like a ton. Here are some of the one’s I’m most excited for myself:
10 Steps to Financial Wellness with Tiffany Aliche
The first time I saw Tiffany speak was at a conference in Charlotte. She blew me away. She was entertaining, confident, smart and into establishing environmental supports to help people make wise money decisions.
Crazy excited to attend her session on October 21 at 2:15p. She’ll be talking about her own financial journey and the lessons she learned along the way that helped her feel financially “whole.”
4 Indispensable (But Rarely Talked About) Moves for Your Money with Jen Hemphill
Reading Jen’s book was so eye opening. I learned a lot about my own psychological baggage with money, and that knowledge helped me get conquer some hurdles I didn’t even know I was tripping over.
Needless to say, I’m pretty psyched for her session covering the emotions behind money. You can catch it on October 22 at 8:30a EST.
Surviving and Thriving When Tragedy Strikes with Michelle P. Cooper
Michelle became a widow and single mother very suddenly. While money isn’t the most important thing in moments like these, having a grasp on how to manage that money well is imperative if you want to make it out of such upheaval financially healthy.
In my opinion, everyone should go to this session. You never know when tragedy will strike. You can prepare for it with Michelle on October 23 at 1:00p EST.
How to Create Positive Change at Work with Georgene Huang
We talk a lot about gender inequality in the workplace here on Femme Frugality. It’s great to know that a problem exists, but how do you go about fixing it as a member of the oppressed group?
Gerogene Huang will be tackling that very topic on October 24 at 3:30p EST. I’m really excited to learn from this one. I know the methods I’ve used to successfully affect change without flipping over the entire apple cart, and I’m incredibly excited to pick up some new tools.
The Best Ways to Teach Young Girls About Money with Dina Shoman
Culturally, we still don’t talk to our daughters about investing as much as we do to our sons. Unsurprisingly, that results in girls and women feeling less confident in this area and compounds the coexisting investing gap.
On October 25 at 8:30a EST, Dina Shoman is coming to the Mamas Talk Money Summit to teach us how to change that. Dina is going to talk about how to help girls feel more confident across their finances, and I’m already getting ready to jot down notes.
Managing Your Finances with a Special Needs Child
With yours truly on October 25 at 2:15p EST!
Here are some of the things we’ll talk about:
- Health insurance.
- Applying for SSI to establish disability.
- ABLE accounts.
- Ensuring your child gets everything they’re entitled to at school.
- Career and higher education resources available to your child starting around middle school.
- And more!
And so much more!
Seriously, everyday is packed with great sessions. There are so many more great ones that I’m excited about that I just can’t cover them all in one post!

*Obviously, not everyone has internet access, and they may not be available during the session time even if it is free. So I know not everyone can come. But those who are reading this blog post and prioritize the event probably can find a way to make it happen, or can catch the sessions via the All Access Pass.
