About This Event

Investing can feel like a scary thing to dive into, especially if you have no idea where to start. Luckily, it's become easier than ever now to start investing, even with a few dollars and you just need to know a few key terms to get going.

In this workshop, you'll learn some investment basics to get you started, including some of the jargon that you'll see thrown around, as well as how to tie your investments to your goals, which types of investment products to consider, and how to actually read your investment statement.

You will learn:

  • How to create a savings plan that includes investing regularly
  • The basics of investing in the stock market, including stocks, bonds, ETF's, mutual funds, alternative investments, etc.
  • The best companies/products to start investing with based on your individual needs, stomach for risk, and goals
  • About your 401k/403b, pension plan, IRA, Roth IRA, SEP IRA, and where and how to open these accounts and how to invest with them
  • How to read an investment statement
  • about socially responsible investing

About the Instructors

Founder & Financial Planner,
Brunch & Budget

Hey, I’m Pamela Capalad. I’m a Certified Financial Planner™ and I’ve been in the financial services industry for over 8 years, and spent a lot of those years at wealth management firms (if you’re really curious where, check out my LinkedIn). I'm the owner of Brunch & Budget, where we have a meal and talk about your finances. I'm based in Brooklyn, NY and serve clients virtually across the country.

I'm here to help you get to that place in your life. You know that place. That place where you close your eyes and feel perfectly at peace and energized all at the same time. That place where you know you’re at your best, that you were somehow built for this, this thing you’re doing that you can’t believe you get to spend your life doing.

Life isn’t about cringing every time you run your credit card through a cash register or dodging calls from bill collectors. It’s not about the next paycheck, next rent check, next job, next in line. Life is about finding your why.

So here’s the deal – you have the why, I have the how. Whenever you're ready, I'll be here to help you figure out how to get there.

I'm from St Croix, USVI, but have been all up in Brooklyn for a while now. I've been a part of the NYC Indie Hip Hop scene since the early 00’s. I've toured the country and the world as myself, and with bands MINDSpray & Deathrow Tull. I've rapped at weddings, schools, prisons, sides of busses, store windows (whattup Chashama!), and most street corners you've seen.

I should probably give a lil background on the theater part. I moved to the states to be an actor. As a mixed race Caribbean kid, I had trouble figuring out where to find roles that i felt comfortable playing. I started writing for myself and others by turning my music into plays. I was a member of the Public Theater's Emerging Writers Group and I've acted and collaborated in indie shows at all the requisite festivals, played the Green Show at OSF, and had readings at the Ohio Theater. I've rocked a number of theaterings with Subjective, Company Cypher, and the National Black Theater.

Every piece I create ends up having an educational component. It's the 'each one teach one' part of Hip Hop. I'm always looking to build avenues of learning from the moments of clarity that great performances can bring us. I've been piloting my ed programs back home in St. Croix and just finished a tour of Hip Hop & Finance workshops on the West Coast. Oh yeah, I also have a weekly podcast about those on Bondfire Radio.
