I’m excited to kick off the new year with a really fun and interesting follower event that combines beauty and finance trends. When I first started out in my career I struggled to find an honest financial advisor to give me advice and direction. Every book I read about personal finance gave contradictory info. Even though I didn’t have much money, I needed to learn the basics. When I found my first financial advisor, the woman called me one day and said if I didn’t have $100,000 to invest immediately, she was going to drop me as a client. (I didn’t) When I went to my bank, the financial advisor was more concerned with selling me products than helping me save money. And the second financial advisor I finally found literally disappeared after six months.

When I finally discovered Jay Papernick through a mutual friend, it was a revelation. Here was someone who took the time to explain finance to me and taught me the basics. (I am literally terrible at math) He and his team have given me honest, valuable advice over the years. I wish I had learned all his info when I first started out.  So, to say thank you, I’m so excited to be hosting this event with Jay, Maria and the Assante Capital Management Team. Jay is going to share finance trends, info and tips that work for anyone regardless of how much money you have. And I’m going to then show you the hottest beauty trends and launches coming for 2019. Wait until you see some of the special limited edition items I’m going to bring to the event. You’ll see it here first!

Of course, every guest will leave with one of my famous beauty gift bags containing some of my favourite travel-sized beauty products. I’m even bringing a couple big door prizes. It’s going to be such a fun evening of finance and beauty.

    I would like to learn more about investing & getting ready for retirement. The collaboration between beauty & finance goes hand in hand. I would love to spend an evening with the Dave’s “village”. Dave, you’ve created a community that is loving and supportive. I would be so excited to learn about the new trends for 2019 first hand. Attending your events is an honor & privilege…. with kind regards Branka @luckyBgirl

    Finance and Beauty. What combination. After buying all the new beautiful cosmetics, who has any money leftover to invest with a financial planner. Sounds like great fun and will share on all my social media sites as I always do.

    Hello Dave. I’m not entering myself but my wife. I feel like educational events like this will really help her make the most out of her current makeup lineup. Plus the event will help her understand how there are several products that don’t have to break the bank in order to provide quality ingredients.

    Also it’ll help me win lots of brownie points if I can win this for her. Here’s hoping for the best. You can reach me @Shafhan. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    So great that you are including finance as it’s an area many people struggle with and could use help in. I would love to attend this amazing evening because I have never been great at finance & would love some information. My experience with banks has been similar as they seem only interested to upsell you instead of helping you make the most of the money you have. And of course I woukd love to hear about the 2019 beauty trends 🥂

    This event sounds amazing, Dave! As a freelance editor I am always looking to save wisely and learn new tips and tricks to do that. To combine this with beauty and your fun event vibe would be a great evening no doubt! I am also horrible at math so we have that in common! @jessicajrabbit

    This year I have made a resolution to get a tighter pulse-check on my finances/investments. An event like this would be so fantastic! I think I could learn a lot of valuable financial information & tips from Jay.
    As well, I am on the lookout for the new beauty trends for this year. Your expertise on beauty is always appreciated!!

    Dave! I love this idea it is so unique and relevant. Balancing a life and a mortgage in downtown Toronto is definitely difficult so I can use any tips I can get! Of course you know I have a slight addiction to Beauty as well so this sounds like the perfect event. Thanks for the chance! @stottvanessa

    Hi Dave! I’d love the opportunity to attend. One of my goals for 2019 is to save more money so I can buy a condo in the next few years. As a beauty lover I’m going to try and budget my beauty expenses so I can save more. Having the chance to learn tips on financial management from a professional while at the same time learning 2019 beauty trends is a great combination!

    I would love an invite, that would be so exciting! I love seeing the latest beauty trends and seeing what products are the ones that people really love the most. I have a very painful genetic condition that causes me to have some really bad days. I’ve found that experimenting and using makeup and products has been a really good distraction, and to make bad days a little bit better. Makeup helps to have some more confidence and present myself better.
    Thank you! Laura

    Awesome, Dave!! 2019 Beauty Trends and financial expertise are two things that I want to learn about!! My financial situation can always be better!! Would love to hear some sound advice from a person you trust because you are right not all financial advisors can be trusted unfortunately! And I don’t have 100’s of thousand in the bank and also been turned away! Again my bank doesn’t seem to care about me just what I should buy to help them. FYI-It’s my Birthday month but my actual birthday is January 18th!! Would love to hear some financial advice & exciting to be in the know of what’s trending for 2019!! Good luck beautiful people @Triped67

    Firstly I am 67 years youngly old. Yes 67. And this is daunting. I recall days of my youth and breezing on the subway or walking down Queen street. Heads turned – both Male and female. Now they stand up and offer me a seat on the TTC. I am 35 inside and then I look in the mirror and am rrminded that time is not kind. I am overtaken with sadness, unable to afford those tiny injections to hide these unsightly wrinkles. I strive to find helpful flaw corrections. A difficult task. Your advice and perhaps encouragement would be greatly appreciated.

    Oh boy! Am I ever looking for some really good financial tips for this year. I’m planning a move, a wedding, and possibly a career change for this year. What better way to get a head start than attend this special event. It’s going to be a very busy year and I could use all the financial advice I can get.
    Thank you for this opportunity Dave!
