    Holistic Budget 101 (FREE)

    with George Azar

    Money shapes our lives in more ways than we realize. This workshop takes into consideration the emotions behind our financial decisions and recognizes that our choices are a direct reflection of our values and passions. It is an educational experience helping people to get out of the rut of financial defeat and making them victorious in seeing money as a tool, not a controlling force. Come learn about the ways money affects our decisions, how it has an impact on our lives, and how to gain control by creating your own holistic budget! 

    Presenter: George Azar After working full-time while obtaining his bachelor's degree, George decided to sit for his first CPA exam to get a foot in the door with one of the Big 4 accounting firms. George moved to Los Angeles from Santa Barbara, CA with the hopes of making a difference in the accounting profession. After 3 years, he decided to take an opportunity with a smaller firm to focus on a better work-life balance. This catapulted him into a holistic journey of finding meaning and purpose in his profession. During months-long sessions with holistic healers, his ultimate passion was brought to life: Holistic Budget, LLC. George was now able to find a home for all of his passions: his tenacity for life, love for people, analytical skills and desire to make a difference in the world. George looks back on his life with wonder and awe, as he has seen the hands of so many who have encouraged him into this passion project. "There is no looking back, for what has been set before me is my life's purpose and calling."

    CLA San Diego and Vanguard Culture Presents:

    Independent Contractor or Employee?

    Proper classification of workers has always been a challenge, but a 2018 ruling by the California Supreme Court dramatically changed the law on whether  California employers may legally classify workers as independent contractors. This ruling seems directed toward the gig economy, but the court did not expressly limit it to that sector. Bills are being circulated in the state legislature that would affirm or overturn this decision. Please join attorney Sam Mazzeo and Olivia Philips of Wilkinson Mazzeo for a dynamic and engaging presentation on this topic!
