Building Blocks Workshop Series

October 27 from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm | Cost:

Part of Cascade Investment Group’s Financial Education Series

Do you know where to start to create a high quality of life for you and every member of your family? Have you considered what you want out of life, how to fund it and how to preserve and protect the valuable benefits for your family member with special needs?

The Blueprints financial planning process helps families with special-needs members build strong financial and legal plans. Rob’s Blueprints workshops take you through each planning step to help you move from feeling stressed and overwhelmed with your planning to confident and secure that you can fund the future of your dreams.

Blueprints is broken up into a series of nine manageable steps, or Building Blocks, and each one focuses on a crucial planning element. Rob will present these Building Blocks as a series of virtual workshops on Tuesdays from 4:00 p.m.to 5:30 p.m. MT.


Building Block #7 – “Protect Your Family”
Is your family protected if you cannot work, or worse, pass away unexpectedly? Learn how to protect your family to shield them from economic disaster as you save and invest to build wealth. It’s one of the most important Building Blocks and it’s also one of the easiest to implement.


Building Block #8 – “Investing for Your Future”
Retirement. College. Future expenses for your family member with a disability. How can you put money aside to pay for the future? Wouldn’t it be great if your money makes money for you? Without you having to do any extra work? In this workshop, Rob educates you about choices you have with the money you’ve set aside for the future.
