You’re looking for support but it feels like no one understands.
You’re searching for mentors to help you envision your next steps. To share how they’re navigating grief, moving forward and finding joy despite not having kids.
You long to connect with community. To find others who are living an unexpectedly childless life.
I created the Childless Collective Summit for you.
Your story is unique, but no matter where you’re at in your journey or how you got here, I created this event to support you in your next steps.
I’ve gathered 40 speakers from around the world to assure you that, while your life may not look the way you’d planned, it can still be full of joy, love, and meaning.
Now for the part you’ve been waiting for. Here are the incredible speakers you’ll hear from at the Childless Collective Summit. You can also learn more about the speakers and their presentations here.
DR. JAY ZIGMONT
How Being Childfree Changes Your Financial Future
Live Q&A Session!
Dr. Jay Zigmont, CFP(R), and his wife are Childfree and live in Water Valley, MS. He has a Ph.D. in Adult Learning from the University of Connecticut and is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER(TM) and Childfree Wealth Specialist. He is the founder of Live, Learn, Plan, and Childfree Wealth, a life and financial planning firm specializing in helping Childfree Individuals.
He has been featured in Fortune, Forbes, Business Insider, Wall Street Journal, Woman’s World, Investors Business Daily, FinancialPlanning, and many other publications.
The Childless Collective Summit is primarily designed for those who are childless not by choice, regardless of the circumstances. It may also be helpful for those who are still pursuing parenthood but are considering a life without children as an option. We also welcome friends and family members who would like to learn more about supporting their childless loved one.
The summit runs from Thursday, July 14 to Sunday, July 17. The popup Facebook group will be available throughout the event.
Each recorded presentation will be available for 24 hours. However, you can grab one of the Pace Yourself Passes to get a full year of access to the presentations and special extras!
Dr. Jay Zigmont’s presentation will not expire and the recording will be sent to everyone who registers.
We never share your email address. You’ll only receive emails from Chasing Creation. That’s so you can get all the updates for the summit and links to each day’s videos. After the summit is over, you’ll continue to hear from me, but you can unsubscribe at any time.
To avoid tech glitches, lower my anxiety, and keep things easy for the speakers, most of the sessions are pre-recorded and will be released at the scheduled time. However, each speaker will be available live, in the chatbox during their scheduled presentation. We hope you’ll join us live to chat while you watch! It adds some fun energy to the sessions and we love hearing your thoughts.
In addition to the pre-recorded presentations, we’ll also offer a few live, interactive sessions over Zoom! These will be noted on the schedule. We hope you’ll join us live!
Yes! Thanks to some generous volunteers who donated their time, all pre-recorded sessions will include captioning. There as also two presentations that will be presented in Spanish with English subtitles.
Live sessions will not include captioning, but they will be added in the versions included in the Pace Yourself Pass.
