What if you could have access to dozens of financial planners all on one day?” asked accomplished news anchor Tracy Davidson during a Solution Side news brief on NBC10. She was referring to the first ever Financial Focus Day held by the FPA (the Financial Planning Association of the Philadelphia Tri-State area) on October 3, 2009 in Malvern, PA where she would open the series of breakout seminars with a keynote speech to consumers.
In a phone interview, Tracy shared with me that FPA has been invaluable to her own research as she seeks to empower and educate the public through Consumer Alerts she shares on the air and Consumer Headlines she writes for her new website www.tracydavidson.com .
“On my website, we asked ‘What are you struggling with?’ and we received a lot of comments about getting a job. People don’t know what to do,” says Tracy, adding, “Networking is different now. Before, you had lunch with everyone you knew. Now, you can use social media like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.”
