It's time to get on top of your financial situation. With inflation high and the economic future uncertain, you need to take control where you can.
This class is sponsored by Financial Literacy First, founded on the principles of Dave Ramsey's model of Financial Peace University. We adopted many of Ramsey's concepts and created this dynamic, interactive class to help people understand the foundation on which they can build financial wellness and eventually wealth. The class will use Metrics, a questionnaire, to help you understand where your financial journey starts and how you might progress over time. Class topics include money mindset, budgeting, SMART savings goals, credit history, and improving your credit score. We don't just explain budgeting, savings, and credit, we give you apps, discussion, and exercises so you can work through how easy it can be to stay on top of things. A licensed tax and financial consultant, Carla Vaughn, founded the nonprofit Financial Literacy First whose mission is to create economic empowerment. New to "adulting"?, never learned the basics of money management or needing a little support to get on track? This class is for you.
