About the Class

FamilyKind proudly announces Committed to Last - in partnership with FamilyKind, a program created to revolutionize the way couples communicate about money, financial matters and build their dreams together.
Money conversations are difficult. We think we talk about money, though we typically talk around money and never have true, meaningful conversations. That is why financial therapist and coach, Carrie Rattle, and a wealth advisor/holistic financial coach, Ivy Menchel, partnered to develop Committed to Last. To guide you on a path to money harmony and an amicable prenuptial or cohabitation experience, we offer a two-hour introductory workshop in this course, in conjunction with FamilyKind.

This course will bring awareness to the core information areas in the prenuptial or cohabitation agreement process, allowing you to negotiate from an educated/knowledgeable perspective, not an emotional one.


You will: 

-    Learn how to improve financial compatibility
-    Enhance your communication as a couple regarding financial matters 
-    Discover your own money beliefs and how your differences can bring strength to you as a couple
-    Explore your financial and life expectations to create a more harmonious relationship into the future

If you are considering a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement, this course will prepare you for a deeper, thoughtful discussion and money clarity before you begin the mediation process. It's a must-have course for any couple beginning a life together.

Menchel is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP  ) and Certified Business Exit Consultant (CBEC  ) with almost 30 years of experience in financial services.  Her purpose is to bring confidence and financial independence for individuals and families facing life-changing events.

She is involved in many professional organizations, has been a guest speaker on television and radio talk shows, presenter at many workshops and regularly contributes to several publications.  When she isn’t helping clients make sound financial decisions as they transition into the next phase of their lives, you can find her cycling for charitable causes, hiking in the mountains or relaxing by the ocean.
