Productivity and Time Management

Mental Health

JL Collins wrote a book called The Simple Path to Wealth. 

The book grew out of a series of letters to his daughter concerning various things—mostly about money and investing—she was not yet quite ready to hear.

Since money is the single most powerful tool we have for navigating this complex world we’ve created, understanding it is critical.

“But Dad,” she once said, “I know money is important. I just don’t want to spend my life thinking about it.”

This was eye-opening. I love this stuff. But most people have better things to do with their precious time. Bridges to build, diseases to cure, treaties to negotiate, mountains to climb, technologies to create, children to teach, businesses to run.

Unfortunately, benign neglect of things financial leaves you open to the charlatans of the financial world. The people who make investing endlessly complex, because if it can be made complex it becomes more profitable for them, more expensive for us, and we are forced into their waiting arms.

Here’s an important truth: Complex investments exist only to profit those who create and sell them. Not only are they more costly to the investor, they are less effective.

The simple approach I created for her and will present to you, is not only easy to understand and implement, it is more powerful than any other.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Debt: Why you must avoid it and what to do if you have it.
  • How to think about money, and the unique way understanding this is key to building your wealth.
  • Where traditional investing advice goes wrong and what actually works.
  • What the stock market really is and how it really works.
  • Why the stock market always goes up and why most people still lose money investing in it.
  • How to invest in a raging bull, or bear, market.
  • Specific investments to implement these strategies.
  • How to simplify the sometimes confusing world of 401(k), 403(b), TSP, IRA and Roth accounts.
  • TRFs (Target Retirement Funds), HSAs (Health Savings Accounts) and RMDs (Required Minimum Distributions).

Emotional Eating: Tips to Tame Your Food Mood

The grim statistics of America’s weight woes are closely tied to the emotional and mental coping mechanisms we practice to process our feelings.

Dr. Ro, America’s Nutrition Coach, has great news!

These habits can be changed and we have the power to break free from eating our feelings and overcome emotional eating for once and for all.

When food is over-consumed and used to escape negative, self-defeating thoughts and unwanted feelings it can become a crutch and ultimately a drug.

But used for its intended purpose- sustenance, food nourishes and supports the body for normal bodily functions and helps us to thrive.

In this webinar you will learn: (Learning Objectives)

  • How to acknowledge and connect your feelings to your food choices.
  • Core belief systems that block your success and ways to reframe your inner dialog.
  • Foods that boost your mood.
  • Healthy behaviors to replace the unhealthy habit of using food as a crutch.
  • Practical tips for weight-loss and weight management.

  • You Healthy, And Happy: Dr. Ro’s Tips To Living An Inspired Life.

Her recent book, Lose Your Final 15, was the cover story in Woman’s World Magazine, only the third time in the magazine’s history featuring an African American Woman on its cover. 


Dr. Ro was featured for helping women to lose weight. To date she has helped over 1.5 million Americans lose more than 6 million pounds. She served on the Advisory Board at Family Circle Magazine, was columnist to Ebony Magazine’s “Get Fit” and “Health and Wellness” columns.
