Tuesday, October 1, 2019 - Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Retirement is glowing on the horizon. Look closely and what do you see - goals, dreams, a certain lifestyle? You’ve worked hard at your careers.  You’ve saved, perhaps through your business, real estate, and/or investments in a 401(k) or IRA. You’ve anticipated that Social Security and maybe a pension will pay a portion of your way in retirement. You feel like you’re on the right track… but what now? If you were to retire tomorrow, how would you use your assets to begin living in retirement? Do you have enough to fund your entire retirement? How and when should you file for Social Security and Medicare? Do your retirement goals include leaving a legacy? Now is the time to address these and other questions as you lay down your plan for living in retirement.  In this class we will explore topics such as how to create your retirement plan, Social Security, pension options, income investing, annuities, other income generating assets and budgeting for the retiree, investing in retirement, a plan for health care, tax strategies for retirement, and estate planning.  Instructor Brian J Scott, CRPC®, a Magic Valley native, is the owner and founder of Elevánt Wealth and has built a successful practice focused on helping his clients confidently transition into retirement through his unique passion and process for comprehensive and collaborative financial planning.

The one day, four-hour course is focused on enhancing the skill set of both beginning and experienced grant writers.  During the course we will cover finding and preparing to write a winning grant proposal, writing grant proposals that reviewers want to fund, and knowing what to do before and after your proposal is funded.  Attendees will walk away with answers to questions like these: “Where can I find money for myself, my company, or my organization?”, “How does the grant process really work?”, and “What can grant money be used for and what are the grant funders really looking for?”.  Additionally, a significant portion of the time will be available for attendees to ask and receive answers to questions that are specific to them, their organizations, and their funding needs.  Instructors Justin Vipperman and Matthew English bring an extensive history of more than 20 years’ experience working with grants, government and public agencies, educational institutions, and non-profit organizations.  Both are currently employed as full-time grant professionals in the Magic Valley community.
