Financial Wellness – Empowering Women Through Financial Independence – NCWQ Seminar with Shadforth Financial Group

NCWQ Empowerment Series – Financial Wellness

“Empowering Women Through Financial Independence”


Welcome to our 2021 Empowerment Series! We want to empower women by providing you with knowledge and information to start your journey to financial independence. Each session, we will learn from an expert in their specific industry, but YOU get to send in your questions prior to the event so that you can get the most out of your attendance.

How to use money to find purpose and contentment

Shadforth Financial Group

We all strive for financial freedombut, so few of us know what that actually means to us.  So many of us seek happiness when it is contentment that we really need.

The Workplace Financial Wellness Index reports that:

  • Almost 1 in 3 Australians experience financial stress
  • Over 66% feel that worries about money make them fearful, anxious and depressed
  • Over 60% think that they are physically affected by financial stress
  • 75% argue about money with their partner or family
  • 90% avoid social functions to avoid spending money

Through Rhiannan Smit’s experience as a Financial Adviser, women are more likely to suffer financial stress and are less likely to engage with their finances.  However anecdotally, when empowered, women make better financial decisions than men.

Therefore in this session, Rhiannan, a Private Wealth Adviser at Shadforth Financial Group, will delve into why financial stress is so prevalent. She will also discuss 3 things that we can do to make sure it doesn’t happen to us.

But to ensure this is beneficial to our members and friends, we invite you to submit any questions you may have around how to achieve financial wellness. Rhiannan will tailor her content around what you want to hear and discuss. So use this opportunity to optimise your learning! Questions can be submitted during the booking process.
