Show Notes

It’s never too soon to start planning for your family’s future. However, this might feel overwhelming when it comes to finances. Listen up as our special guest Elizabeth Beltran helps us make “cents” of our money.

Elizabeth Beltran
I am currently going into my third year as a Financial Representative for Modern Woodmen of America and am so excited to continue helping families all around California. Modern Woodmen has been a great opportunity for me to learn and grow as a financial expert.

We are a Fraternal Organization that not only focuses on a holistic approach to our clients financial planning, but also focuses on creating quality family life and community impact. Since we are not a publicly traded company, our profits end up going back into our members and their communities. I have always had a philanthropical heart and love that I get to include it with my career.

My goal is to make sure my clients feel comfortable when talking about uncomfortable times in their life, I wish to help them plan for the good and bad days and for them to know that I truly care for their peace of mind and knowledge of financial planning.
