Description of Learning Type CE Event: Investing is something that, from the start of time, has been predominantly male. Research shows that 1 in 10 women understand investing, which likely means only 1 in 10 women invests. The problem with this statistic is that investing is crucial to financial success. Money kept in a savings account alone will lose value every. single. year. ABA is a female-dominated field, with 87% of RBTs, BCBAs, and BCaBAs being female, and a helping profession at that, meaning we’re probably not making mid-six figure incomes. So how do we make the most of what we’ve got? That’s right – investing! This course will show the data on what investing can lead to, provide step-by-step instructions on how to get started, and demonstrate how to use the science of ABA to make the magic happen.
