Do you want to join our first-ever retreat in NYC?

We're hosting the first Afford Anything LIVE IN-PERSON EVENT in New York City on August 20!!!! 🎉🎊✨🥳

Here's our idea for an epic, eye-opening weekend with the community in which we all figure out the life portion of money and life. 

On Friday, we gather at a gorgeous venue in Manhattan to meet and mingle over delicious food and an open bar. 

On Saturday, we buckle down into a workshop in which we figure out the next 10 years. How do we start with the end in mind? What end are we trying to achieve? We cap off with a fantastic group dinner.

On Sunday, we enjoy hot seats in which participants share how they will apply what they learned this weekend to their lives and get feedback. 

Pretty awesome, right? Check out the full details below.


Do you find yourself wondering...

What's in store for me in the next decade? What do the Roaring Twenties hold for me? What's my why for financial independence, and how can I start creating that today?

Then come join our first ever Afford Anything weekend retreat, taking place at The Financial Gym in Manhattan. After three days with us, you'll leave with solid answers to all three of those questions. 

Think about what clarity around your financial independence plans means for you. For your family. For your life. 

We can't wait to meet you for this goal-setting, vision-casting retreat. The theme? Your Next 10 Years.

(The Financial Gym is located on 134 W 25th St, New York, NY 10001 on the second floor.)
