Money Matters

If I could go back in time and talk to my younger self, the conversation would definitely be focused on finance. Because I often wonder how I successfully completed a bachelor’s degree, then bought and sold a home without ever stepping foot into an economics class. I know this for sure: I have my mother to thank for teaching me the art of making and sticking to a budget and my grandmother for making me her assistant every time she sat down to pay bills and do taxes. Beyond that, my financial literacy is limited. Which is why I couldn’t be more excited to further broaden my financial knowledge at the #PUSHMoneyMatters workshop on December 5th! MoneyMatters_CHI_Gen_1205A_1024x1024_v1” Rainbow PUSH Coalition and Chevrolet  have partnered to present a financial empowerment program series entitled Money Matters. This is an innovative and engaging program designed to help educate youth and young adults between the ages of 18-35 on the topics of money management, credit, debt, college financing, and investing. Program attendees will be able to learn from nationally known expert speakers and the knowledge and skills gained from attending the workshops will provide attendees with a greater sense of empowerment and financial freedom that they can tap into as they continue to build their lives and communities. This will be our final workshop for the year. It will be held at the Rainbow PUSH headquarters located in Chicago on December 5 from 10:00am until 3:00pm. All attendees who register and attend the event will also be eligible to win a free Google tablet.Lunch will also be provided.”

    Money Matters! I love the title of your post. I am focused on credit at this point in time. Credit and savings. I think I have budgeting down to a science….now if I decide to stick with a budget that particular week is another story. LOL!

    Having and using a budget is a very smart idea. You are very fortunate that your family taught you that skill.

      I agree with you Roy, hopefully budgeting becomes something all families pass down.
