The Fireside Chats are a free resource that offer insights on how to take control of your money, build confidence as an investor, and put your money to work supporting the things you care about. The weekly Fireside Chats kick off Friday, February 19 at 12:00pm EST.

    The weekly topics will follow each chapter’s focus of Activate Your Money, and will feature finance experts who contributed to the book.

    “These chats will introduce viewers to a new paradigm in investing. We no longer have to make the choice between achieving financial return and building a better world. We can have both,” said Janine Firpo, Author. “I have done this with my own money, so I know it is possible. Activate Your Money shows others how they can do the same.”
