During that time, he’s met many millionaires who started off poor or middle class. These accomplished individuals often donated their time and spoke for his classes. Tim has compiled their wisdom into “Millionaire Habits,” a 100 slide presentation. It provides everything from a specific action plan to a discussion of over-arching strategies. It profiles many kinds of people: from ordinary millionaires to those that glitter; and it even gets into how millionaires raise their children. Backed up by a wealth of reading, and a lot of data, “Millionaire Habits” isn’t just a financial plan. It also shows how to increase your happiness, what to invest in, and how to avoid societies stumbling blocks.

Negotiation: Tim Wuebker June 1 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Tim Wuebker is an easygoing man. And yet, a pretty good negotiator. How did this happen?! Because he is lucky enough to teach Personal Finance, Tim asks great guest speakers good questions. From them, he formed “The Four Keys of Negotiation.” Some of these keys, like “Think Win/Win or No Deal,” are cribbed from other authors. Others come from the wise people he’s interviewed. And all of them deeply work with the Catholic faith. It’s awesome to realize that the very best negotiation advice there is actually is within the Bible, and that when done properly, it allows every party to be deeply satisfied. Join Tim for an evening of explanation, intriguing case studies, and practical exercises. This is information you can begin applying immediately to improve your life, and the lives of those closest to you.

Wouldn’t it be awesome to start a business this week? Don’t quit your job; don’t drop out of school; don’t go into debt; don’t take dangerous risks. Instead, take something you already love to do and make an offer to other people. Tim will share what he’s learned, plus some incredible resources. Email him now at twuebker@sjakeepingfaith.org and he’ll share one of the best of these with you.
