Where Do You Start?
Perhaps you have been told that you should save money, pay cash for your purchases, stay out of debt, and manage your money. But what if you don’t know where or how to start? What are the major considerations? What are the traps? What if your family was not so good at saving? What if your credit is bad or non-existent? What if you are already swimming in student loans or other debt and have given up trying?
No matter where you are with your finances, this course will give you pertinent information! We won’t be able to provide you with specific financial advice, but we will give you a great introduction to the basic elements of Financial Literacy 101, so you utilize this knowledge to improve your future financial success rate.
After completing this course, you will have:
1. A better understanding of financial literacy
2. Practical knowledge of the components of a budget
3. Tools you can use to develop new spending and savings strategies
