Achieving Financial Security and Economic Empowerment

Join us for a live conversation about how military families can create financial security and wealth. As a former Army officer, Doug combines his personal life experiences and his 20+ year investing career to offer advice uniquely tailored to today’s families. As author of Family Inc., Doug’s writings and ideas on personal finances and financial security for military families has been covered by national news outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, PBS, Time,, and Stars & Stripes. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn best practices for ensuring your family’s financial security from an Army and financial industry veteran.

Interested in Becoming a Networks Live! Community Partner?

Community Partners are local or national organizations committed to improving military spouse employment outcomes. Unlike a career fair, Blue Star Networks Live! events provide a forum for community partners to gain first hand knowledge of challenges military spouses face while seeking employment, and are provided one-on-one time to mentor spouses with career enhancing solutions. Military spouses typically leave an event with an increased awareness of resources, employment opportunities, and new professional contacts.
