This webinar will provide a solid path to wealth accumulation by presenting 20 research-based wealth accumulation factors and online financial planning resources.
Dr. Barbara O’Neill will present this 90-minute webinar on behalf of OneOp. Americans have always been fascinated by millionaires and their ranks have actually been increasing in recent years despite the financial crisis. The “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” game show and “MegaMillions” lotteries draw big crowds. Most people become wealthy the “old fashioned way,” however, through hard work and regular saving/investing. Webinar participants will learn about the following topics:
- Twenty research-based factors that are associated with wealth accumulation
- The awesome power of compound interest over time
- The impact of lifestyle choices (e.g., health habits) upon personal finances
- Research-based characteristics of millionaires
- Resources for educators and consumers (e.g., online financial calculators)
