Women Invited to Learn Investing

By Zac Moran, Reporter | Posted: Wednesday, July 24, 2019 4:32 pm

Betty Marzec, the financial advisor at the Lake Arrowhead branch of Edward Jones Financial, is hosting a free presentation to help women in the mountain communities learn how to invest. This is targeted at women of all generations and backgrounds.

“They don’t need any financial background or knowledge of investing,” Marzec said. “It’s going to be a good introduction as to why investing is so important. It’ll be good for people just learning, but it’ll also be a good refresher for people who have been investing…”

Marzec said the presentation will discuss the importance of saving, compound interest, and “why it’s important to start saving today.”

Dinner will also be provided by Lake Arrowhead Pizza Deli at no cost to participants.

Though they originally required RSVPs by July 15, Marzec said there were still openings as of Tuesday, July 23 and remaining slots are on a first-come, first-served basis.

For those interested, Marzec said she plans on having similar seminars in the future for the whole mountain. She said she may also start a coffee club “for anyone interested to talk about how the market’s doing.”

“I’m excited to introduce myself to some new faces I haven’t met yet. Hopefully, some people are a little curious about it and they’re not scared to come see what it’s all about,” Marzec said. “I think it’ll be really good for people on the mountain to have this free education. Whether they invest with me or they don’t, this is something everyone needs to learn about.
