Workshops and Seminars
We offer financial coaching, workshops and seminars for individuals and small groups of like-minded people. We also specialize in running a variety of services for organizations.
As individual as you are
After an initial discussion, we’ll decide together what will work for you. The service is completely flexible – you choose whether you would like a single consultation or a series of meetings over several months.
We’ll do our best to arrange sessions at a time to suit you, and you can choose whether you’d like to talk face-to-face, on the phone, via Skype or by email.
Please contact us for a copy of our Terms of Business.
Small groups, shared goals
We also offer financial coaching for small groups of friends or colleagues with similar needs. For instance, you may want to understand savings options available. Or you’d like a general teaching session on money management and ways to gain better understanding of financial matters. Many people find that shared coaching is a great way to learn.

At various times, you will probably pay for health insurance, disability insurance, auto insurance, property insurance, life insurance, and more.

Independent advice based on proven research methods

What would it take to live the life you want?
If you were told you have exactly 18 months to live, what would you change?
The better we understand what is important to you, the better we can help you structure your finances to achieve your goals. Financial advisors can inadvertently try to impose their own goals on their clients.
We have found the best way to avoid doing so, which is to use a variety of techniques and approaches to help you clarify and communicate your goals and then help you measure your progress toward them.
Do you carry balances on your credit cards/huge balances in your current account?
How would you manage if you had no income for six months?
What would you do if you had to save more to meet your goals?
Say the word “budgeting” and most people will cringe or groan. They immediately think of tedious record keeping and then start feeling deprived. But all budgeting means is deciding how you will spend your money in advance so that you are making regular progress toward your financial independence.
We will help you understand the difference between good and bad debt, make sure you have enough set aside for emergencies and special opportunities, and, if needed, help you gain control over your spending.
The goal of investment advisory is to help investors manage their money more effectively. However, the spirit behind such advice is education, including educating investors on their investments and how they work. It’s with this purpose in mind that the Private Wealth team at United Capital form “Creating Capital” Community groups. Creating Capital is the Online subscription-based version of United Capital’s Private Wealth services.
