As a financial representative for the past five years, Emily Trautwein’s goal is to help you make wise financial decisions so that you can reach your goals and live a more impactful and generous life.

Emily will share with us some basic financial planning tips as well as share a bit about the 2018 Tax Reform and Jobs Act and how that will impact us as individuals and for our small business owners. Hopefully, we can all find something to take action on to improve our financial picture.

Going into business is exciting but is not without risk whether it’s from clients, vendors, co-owners, employees, or independent contractors. Business owners and contractors can take a number of concrete, actionable steps to limit their potential personal liability.

"RockFloss explores the science of compression band flossing and fascial shearing to help improve joint mobility, reduce pain*, and enhance movement. RockFloss is the one of the latest additions to the RockTape tool arsenal to better equip each clinician, therapist or trainer to deliver superior patient and client outcomes. This RockFloss Course will introduce the concept of skin/fascial/nerve gliding to help reduce tissue swelling, improve movement and modulate pain* with the use of ‘compression band floss’. This course will cover the anatomy, physiology and neurology of the effects of compression band flossing on connective tissue gliding, tissue traction and tissue compression. Interventions with compression band floss (including direction and pressure concepts) will be reviewed and integrated into current rehabilitative concepts."
