Listen. You’re a creative person. You know it, we know it. So what if you spend your life hunched in a cubicle, writing reports summarizing and aggregating multiple reports in a daily report in preparation for the weekly and monthly reports. There’s something inside you, something bright and starlike that burns in your soul like a fire-breathing dragon (only smaller and maybe without wings or fire breath, but with some impressive firelike appendages coming out of its nose instead, like star-nosed moles).
The Strawberry Roth IRA and the Chocolate Tax Break are just two of the cocktails served at Finances Demystified happy hours, hosted by personal finance coach Dominique Broadway. During the events, also called "money parties," participants sip drinks and mingle, all while discussing personal finance issues and getting answers from experts that include realtors and entrepreneurs.
Dominique spent years at brokerage and personal finance firms, and her experience in money management goes back—way back. Even as a kid, she sold handmade bracelets to her friends and family, rather than just trading them for trendy pet rocks. Currently, Dominique strives to demystify the world of personal finance for the everyday person through her social finance events, which aim to break taboos around discussing money.

Some of the continually updated video classes focus on topics such as black-and-white photography, taking group or self portraits, and mastering different sources of light rather than always carrying around the same lava lamp.
