Inspire. Empower.

Mark Flowers, CFP®, CDFA™

Second Saturday Leader and Financial Planner

The Second Saturday Divorce Workshop program was founded in 1989 by the non-profit (the Women’s Institute for Financial Education).  Second Saturday has helped thousands of individuals navigate the divorce process, and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships and programs to help women become financially independent. I am the local leader here in San Mateo County.

We are a unique resource group in the Bay Area, offering workshops to inform and educate, offering professional divorce services, and offering educational tools to empower you. People think that divorce is about the law, but it's really about three things: family, emotion, and money. For this reason, each of our workshops features three professionals- a financial planner, a therapist, and a family law attorney.

We are dedicated to helping everybody through the divorce process, regardless of their circumstances.
