This is just a quick (and temporary) note for folks in the Portland area. Tomorrow night (Wednesday, August 17th) from 6:30 to 9:00, the free Plutus Voices gathering will take place at TaborSpace. The topic will be pursuing financial independence on a low income.
Here’s how the Plutus Voices website describes its aims:
Plutus Voices is a series of networking and learning events from the financial media and beyond. The series brings attention to speakers and topics that are crucial to success with financial literacy, capability, and empowerment through blogging and podcasting.
Hear from the best community-builders and influencers about inspiring action in their audiences and participate in an inspiring group discussion in which all participants shares their unique insight.
While Plutus Voices includes short talks from featured speakers, all who attend the event have the opportunity to participate in a special group activity. The evening also includes many opportunities to network with other content creators and members of the financial media and services communities.
Drinks and snacks are included. Plutus Voices is free to attend thanks to our sponsors, but we do encourage a tax-deductible contribution of $25 to ensure we can continue offering Plutus Voices events throughout the country.
Tomorrow’s speakers include:
- Dr. Regina Moore, the co-founder of one of Women’s Personal Finance, which is one of my favorite online money communities.
- Debbie Todd, a licensed CPA and financial educator. Debbie is also part of the team at the Dollars and Good Sense Foundation.
- Larry Frazier, a technology nerd who also likes teaching people about money.
I’m driving up from Corvallis to attend Plutus Voice: Portland, and my buddy Miranda Marquit is coming over from Idaho Falls. If you have the time and inclination, it’d be great to see you there. It’s free! And it should be fun.
