        When it comes to financial decisions, do you feel like the boss or like you’re starting your first job?
        Sadly, millions of people with no background in finance must make important financial decisions—saving for college, financing a house, planning for retirement, making a workable budget or managing investments.
        It’s an intimidating responsibility that can lead to poor decisions . . . if you don’t resolve to take control of your financial situation.
        The Women’s Council programming for 2017 will offer a session—“Be the Boss of Your Finances”—on Monday, May 22, at noon. Women’s Council is a quarterly program of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce.
        Kelly Browand, an Edward Jones financial advisor, says, “It’s important to invest my time to understand what you’re working toward before you invest your money. It’s also important to understand the level of risk you’re comfortable accepting when investing so we can balance it with the steps necessary to reach your long-term goals.”
        Browand began her Edward Jones career in Cleveland in 2010. Today Edward Jones financial advisors serve the community from eight convenient locations.
“I have served the firm as a field trainer and mentor to newer financial advisors,” Browand says.
        For the Women’s Council luncheon, she will talk about financial goals and how to recognize such risks as rising costs, longevity, market volatility and the unexpected.
        “Professional women are often responsible for financial matters in older and younger generations,” she says.
        She will also address Social Security, long-term care and retirement income.
        She noted, “Being retirement ready means creating a vision for your own retirement. This involves defining retirement because each woman’s situation is unique.”
        Browand attended Florida Atlantic University and graduated summa cum laude in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree.
        She and husband, David, have four children, a daughter and three sons. Originally from Ohio, she has lived in Cleveland since 2008. An active member of the community, she is president for the Family Resource Agency board and past president for Cleveland Civitan Club. She serves as a community volunteer lead for Bradley County American Red Cross and volunteers for Junior Achievement of the Ocoee Region, Habitat for Humanity of Cleveland and Boy Scouts of America.
       Cost for the “Be the Boss of Your Finances” session is $15 for Chamber members and $25 for nonmembers and includes a buffet luncheon. Chamber members may use admission credits from their tiered investment if available.
       To register, call 423-472-6587 by noon on Thursday, May 18. Chamber members also may register online at the community calendar at www.clevelandchamber.com.
