The Linguists Translators and Interpreters in the Bay Area meetup hosted a workshop by FiClub coaches, Ray and Frank, on personal finances and goal setting for a group of self-employed language professionals. Great crowd and some really good discussions. The big area of need the group reported was ensuring that they built adequate retirement savings while keeping an eye on growing the income that makes it possible to cover expenses and move forward. Taxes and record-keeping were also an area of focus for the group. We believe that participants were able to achieve some breakthroughs to get into action on their top concerns. We look forward to hearing from folks in the future as they keep building the habits of financial mastery.
The organizers of the Linguists, Translators, and Interpreters in the Bay Area Meetup would like to thank FiClub for their presentation.

On a side note, we are very excited to report that three participants in the workshop chose to join the Northern California Translators' Association (NCTA) after the workshop. Maybe all that talk about smart money decisions led them to see what a great investment in your career joining the professional association can be.
