The Elephant in the Room: How Financial Stress is Destroying Productivity, Relationships & Health

There is a problem that is taking over all generations in America. It’s the elephant in every room, on every social media page, and in every workplace. No one wants to talk about debt, credit, or financial problems and it’s creating problems in all areas of life. Jen, along with her elephant, Bernadebt (Burn-A-Debt), brings this topic to the forefront so that we can all understand why not talking about it is the biggest problem.

Productivity – did you know that employees spend over 150 hours a year of company time working on their own personal financial issues? Financial stress costs companies $7,000 per year, per employee.
Relationships – money is the leading cause of divorce and relationship problems. One of the biggest problems? No one talks about it. We’re going to talk about it!

Health – 70% of illnesses are caused by stress. Finances are the number one cause of stress. Your debt and credit problems are literally making you sick. Let’s talk about solutions.

This talk is an innovative approach that examines several typical financial situations and points out a glaring disconnect in our society. Let’s talk about the elephant in the room.
