The Connection Between Mental Wellness & Financial Wellness!
Mental Wellness & Financial Wellness go hand in hand and as a society we are talking more about mental health in the workplace but we also need to be discussing financial wellness. In surveys where they ask employees what causes you stress, the answer that tops the charts is consistently personal finance.
In a recent survey conducted by a large company, they found three of the top four stressors are:
Personal and household finances (45 per cent)
Budgeting (32 per cent)
Unexpected finances (31 per cent)
As well, one-third of respondents reported feeling insecure about their overall financial health.
Personal finance gets into our life; it gets into our sleep, into our self-esteem, into our relationships.
In this presentation, Jane will offer up important insights, tips and strategies as to what is important for professionals to keep top of mind when working with clients and their families to help minimize this stress.
“I’ve had the privilege of knowing Jane for two years and recently she spoke on the WIFS (Women In Insurance & Financial Services) main stage. It was heartfelt, authentic with a compelling ask. Thank you for sharing your story Jane. It is one that everyone in Insurance and Financial Services should hear and I would highly recommend Jane to any organization that is looking for a dynamic speaker to make an impact and affect change!”
“We had the pleasure of having Jane keynote for our 2017 HUB Day road shows in 9 Canadian cities over a two week span. Jane’s story is powerful and connected deeply with the core of our advisor base. It is sometimes difficult for our advisor group to see the impact that they have on families in their day to day work with the intangible product they sell. In Jane’s case, her worst nightmare happened. Her story illustrates the importance of her advisor in her life when the unthinkable actually happened. Jane delivered a heartfelt plea to the group to never stop what they are doing and to recognize the significance of their work. I would highly recommend Jane!”
“Jane Blaufus is uniquely qualified to share her personal story with producer audiences as well as their family members. Even with her years of experience as an advisor, she was still unprepared to deal with the emotional and financial aspects of her personal tragedy as she shares during her presentation.
She delivers an impactful, motivational message to the audience that inspires them to be better advocates for their clients and families, to be proud of the noble profession they have chosen and not be afraid to say they sell “life insurance.”
I would encourage anyone to put Jane on the main platform at any meeting or conference as her powerful message is applicable not only to the insurance industry but to everyone!”
“I had the great pleasure of speaking at the same event as Jane late last year .I cannot compliment her enough on the content of her presentation and the professional delivery of her message. She is extremely capable of capturing the hearts and minds of all those lucky enough to listen to what she has to share, her message was powerful, life changing, enabling, thought provoking and relative to all of those professionals offering financial advice to the consumer, I was among the many that gave her a standing ovation for the way in which delivered tremendous insight through her delivery. If you have not considered having Jane as a key note speaker I would highly recommend you do so.”
“If you are in need of a jolt to your current thinking, work ethic or approach to your business………you need Jane! We were fortunate enough to have Jane speak AND One of the attendees speak up the next day about the changes she had implemented after speaking with Jane that had provided positive results within hours. You can’t ask for more than that; for someone to take away something so positive and see results almost immediately. That’s the impact Jane has and once you have heard her passion and perspective you will see things differently and that is truly a great thing. Thank you Jane!”
“I highly recommend Jane as your next key note speaker. A passionate, dynamic, compassionate speaker, Jane has the difficult conversation with her audience on the steps needed in difficult and tragic circumstances. Jane is a consummate professional and a delight to work with, she engages her clients in conversations for the utmost in preparation. WITH THE [STROKE] OF A PEN – Claim Your Life – a guide that will support anyone through tough times.”
“Jane was the keynote speaker at our Life Brokerage Exchange where she shared a real world experience about the great work that Financial Advisors do to cover the risks that families face. She also provided the audience with great coaching tips to use when they are attracting and developing relationships with Advisors. I would highly recommend Jane!”
