Do you want to get on track with your finances but aren't sure how or where to start? Have you had the same New Year's resolution year after year?

Do you feel that you have a good grasp on managing your money but would like to fine tune it? If any of these sound familiar, this course is for you!
This 5-week series focuses on building a solid financial foundation. We create budgets, dissect credit reports, reduce debt and build a savings plan. We even cover Investing 101 to prepare you for the next level.
We have started and will continue weekly through June 12, 2019. The course is flexible, however. You may follow the designed schedule or work at your own pace. Enrollment will remain open throughout the course.
There are assignments so grab your bills and your bank, loan and credit card statements.
Building a solid financial foundation is an investment that pays off well into your lifetime. Start now.
Credit cards are a source of endless debt for so many. They are so convenient, aren't they? Over the years, I have found that few people pay attention to just how much money they are paying out in interest and fees. Also, with all of the fine print, it’s hard to decipher what is going to really cost you and what is not.
In this course:
Grab a statement or two and be prepared to take notes.
Having trouble keeping a savings account? Want to understand your options? Life is short; do you even need to save? This session looks at the ricochet effect of what, not having funds put aside, can have on your life. It is hard to live for the moment if you are not prepared for life’s ups and downs.
Here, we look at:
Budgeting puts you in control of your money. This course teaches you how to create a budget. We go a little deeper than the numbers to help ensure long-term success. When you complete the course, you will have a fully functioning budget that will have you well on your way to meeting your financial goals. This is the step you want to take before you engage a budgeting app or software. There is homework and participation is required. Let’s do it! Are you ready?
Here, you are the lender. Would you give yourself a loan? Let’s find out.
Have you ever completed a loan application with your fingers crossed; not knowing if it will be approved? Are you a little perplexed about whether you are on track with how you manage your finances and want some direction? Then this course is for you.
In this session, we will walk through a loan application and discuss what lenders are really looking for. Most of us will be borrowing money many times and for many different reasons throughout our lives. Understanding the process now affords you positive outcomes for years to come.
As a benefit and what most don't realize is the loan application is a fantastic blueprint for a rock-solid financial plan. It offers very specific financial parameters that can be used as your lifelong guide. We dive into those specifics and more.
This is an ADVANCED course.
This isn't the information you find in pamphlets.
Knowing about credit scoring is one thing, but understanding how to move through the credit process to meet your financial goals is another. Videos 1 and 2 look at how your score is calculated with tips on how to manage it. Videos 3 and 4 are full of valuable tips and advice including types of financing that actually benefit your score, that very few people take advantage of, and ideas on how to manage credit and loans that positively impact you and your family.
This is a FREE course.
