Hook Invited to Host Two Sessions at The Star Ledger’s 12th Annual Road to Personal Wealth Financial Conference

April 1, 2014

Howard Hook, Certified Financial Partner and Certified Public Accountant, was once again invited by The Star Ledger to be a guest speaker at their annual Road to Personal Road Financial Conference. Held on April 5, 2014 at Kean University in Union, New Jersey, Howard will host two unique sessions.

His morning workshop, Single Person’s Guide to Financial Independence, is designed for individuals who are single – whether divorced, widowed, or never married. Surveys show that one in every three people between the ages of 45 and 78 are single. For those people age 79 and older the number of single households is about the same as the number of married households. While the financial planning issues may be the same regardless of marital status (retirement planning, income tax planning, estate planning, cash management, and insurance planning), the solutions are often very different. Participants will learn the options available to them and what questions they should ask, leaving the workshop feeling empowered to make necessary and potentially life changing decisions.

His afternoon workshop, 7 Things You Need to do in your 401(k) plan NOW, is designed for people who have been contributing to their 401(k) plan at work and want to learn more about how to get the most out of the plan. You work hard every day to be able to provide for yourself and your family. Your 401(k) needs to work as hard as you do. Hook will go over 7 things you can do immediately - regardless of whether you are just beginning to contribute or are ready to retire - to get your 401(k) working as hard as you do so you don’t have to work a day longer than you have to.

Fellow speakers include keynote speakers Daymond John, founder and CEO of FUBU, star on ABC’s Shark Tank, and CEO of Shark Branding; as well as Jean Chatzky, Financial Editor of NBC’s Today and Personal Finance Contributor to Newsweek and The Daily Beast.
