Keeping up With Joneses - Money Management Workshop

Santa Barbara Young Black Professionals will host a free presentation — Keeping Up With the Jones Part 2: Transform Your Finances — 6:30-8 p.m. Oct. 17 at Impact Hub, 1117 State St.

The financial workshop is the second held by the group this year. Networking will precede the presentation and refreshments will be provided. The event includes two guest speakers.

Participants will learn how to save money in a practical way with tools and tips provided by Warren Ritter, local manager at Wells Fargo.

Together with Guy Walker, a wealth strategies planner, participants will learn how mastering the art of short-term spending builds the foundation for growing long-term wealth for years to come.

Walker is president and founder of Wealth Management Strategies, a financial advisory firm that provides critical thinking, strategies and solutions around issues of wealth transfer, retirement planning, executive benefits and business succession planning.

Walker has a history of community service and serves on several nonprofit boards: Endowment for Youth Committee, Allan Hancock College Foundation, Community Action Commission and Dunn School. He lives in Santa Ynez Valley, but is proud to say he is “straight outta Compton.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
