Sure, you may not be a novelist, but that doesn't mean you're not a creative writer. Creative writing is key to hooking a user and making them a long-term reader or customer – think product packaging, blogs, emails, and websites. Just ask critically acclaimed novelist Georgia Clark, it takes motivation, perseverance, and inspiration to craft a good story, and it's not easy! Join this exclusive hour-long session with Georgia to learn her tricks to becoming a better writer and you'll be writing your best content in no time. MEET THE SPEAKER: Georgia Clark is an author, performer and screenwriter based in Brooklyn. She wrote the critically acclaimed novel, The Regulars, and the "witty, sexy" (L.A. Times) The Bucket List, both Simon & Schuster. Georgia is the host/founder of the storytelling night, Generation Women, which invites six generations of women to tell a story on a theme, and she is currently developing The Regulars as a TV show for E!. The Bucket List: From the author of the critically acclaimed “lively and engrossing parable for women of all generations” (Harper’s Bazaar) The Regulars comes a deeply funny and thoughtful tale of a young woman who, after discovering she has the breast cancer gene, embarks on an unforgettable bucket list adventure. Twenty-five-old Lacey Whitman is blindsided when she’s diagnosed with the BRCA1 gene mutation: the “breast cancer” gene. Her high hereditary risk forces a decision: increased surveillance or the more radical step of a preventative double mastectomy. To help her make her choice, she (and her friends) creates a “boob bucket list”: everything she wants do with and for her boobs before a possible surgery. This kicks off a year of sensual exploration and sexual entertainment for the quick-witted Lacey Whitman.

It's time to get fit – you can leave the dumbells and yoga mats at the door. We're getting FINANCIALLY fit with the CEO of The Financial Gym in this exclusive virtual session! Shannon McLay has created a safe space for people of this generation to learn about their finances, coupled with a team of experts to help you take action. Not only will Shannon be sharing tips on how you can become more financially fit, but she'll be answering your pressing finance questions. Sign up today to ensure your question is answered! MEET THE SPEAKER: Shannon McLay is a financial planner who left a "traditional" financial services firm 5 years ago to start her own company, The Financial Gym because she felt traditional financial services firms did not have the tools or resources for this generation. After accomplishing her own successful weight loss journey, Shannon realized that while there are a number of resources available to people who want to become physically fit, there are far fewer for those looking to become financially fit. Most people don't even know what financial fitness looks like, let alone how to achieve it, prompting McLay to ask, "How can you discuss retirement or investment options, when you don't have any money to begin with?" As with physical health and fitness, financial fitness is a goal that anyone can achieve, no matter your starting point. The journey is very similar: you need a plan, the right tools to accomplish your goals and a support system. Shannon realized that the key to financial success for most people is human contact and not a website or an app. People are more than algorithms and The Financial Gym is putting the personal back in personal finance to help the everyday Jack and Jill who are trying to build assets while also managing debt. Through her blog, Financially Blonde, her book, Train Your Way To Financial Fitness, her podcast, Martinis and Your Money and her company, Shannon is committed to making financial fitness fun, easy and accessible for everyone.
