5 Reasons To Lead A Personal Finance Study – Part 5

In this series, I am sharing five reasons to lead the I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. personal finance study at your church or business.

Part 5 Schools Are Not Teaching It Enough

Most people I meet had “one or none” classes that taught personal finances.   I personally had one class and it was called “Home Economics”.   It was about the home economy, but we only learned how to make no-bake cookies (which we didn’t even put in the oven!).

I am guessing that you would not be excited about leading a group study about calculus or geometry, but helping people with such a practical and potentially life-changing skill set is tremendously rewarding!   We can complain all we want about the schools not teaching it, but that does not address the fact that most of us are not still in school and need to learn it now.

Thank you so much for reading this series!   You can be a part of this effort by leading the I Was Broke. Now I’m not. Group Study.   You can learn more about the study and purchase kits HERE.

5 Reasons To Lead A Personal Finance Study – Part 4

In this series, I am sharing five reasons to lead the I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. personal finance study at your church or business.

Part 4 You will learn as much from the participants as they learn from the study!

As we developed the I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. Group Study, we had several thousand people participate in it.   I personally sat in on the group discussion, and each time I was BLOWN AWAY by the knowledge shared!   I learned money saving tips.   People shared financial victories that they had experienced.   They also shared failures (which we can ALL learn from).

As a leader of a group, you will learn tips that you can apply to your own financial situation and that is what makes it so AWESOME!   Every time I have led a group, I have walked away saying, “I hope they got as much from this study as I learned from them!”

We are PASSIONATE about helping people win with their personal finances.   You will see evidence of our passion in every aspect of this study.   It is the passion of every IWBNIN team member to help others accomplish far more than they ever thought possible.   It is what drives everything we do.   It is why we travel all over the nation teaching tens of thousands people live every year.   It is why we have put forth the effort to write books, classes, studies, messages, and speeches.   It is why we train financial counselors who are equipped to provide FREE 1-on-1 financial counseling to people throughout their communities.   It is why we offer our financial tools for FREE.   It is why we created the Next Steps website.

We KNOW that when we help a family or individual improve their financial situation, we are helping them fund their future hopes, plans and dreams.

5 Reasons To Lead A Personal Finance Study – Part 2

In this series, I am sharing five reasons to lead the I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. personal finance study at your church or business.

Part 2 This study is PRACTICAL and the TOOLS ARE FREE.

I graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue University, but the real truth is that most of the teaching was pretty far up in the clouds.   It was not immediately clear to me how all of my classes in Thermodynamics, Heat & Mass Transfer, Statics, and Kinematics were able to be applied in “the real world.”   There is no doubt that ALL of these subjects DO matter – a lot – but they were not always taught in the most practical way.

I resolved to myself back then that whatever I taught, I would seek to teach it at a level where everyone would not only “get it”, but they would be able to easily apply it.

That is how this study has been designed.     The feedback from thousands of people tells us that we have hit our goal.   Allof the tools taught are offered free via our Next Steps website (HERE).   We have even created a website for the I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. Group Study to guide people through each session (HERE).

5 Reasons To Lead A Personal Finance Study – Part 1

Here are five reasons to lead the I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. personal finance study at your church or business.

Part 1 People are hurting and looking for answers.

The collapse of the housing and stock markets in late 2008 have had an impact on millions (should I say billions?) of people.   People are dealing with HUGE financial issues such as:

  • Reduced pay
  • Lay-off
  • Large debts
  • House worth less than is owed
  • Car worth less than is owed
  • Divorce
  • Medical bills
  • Past due taxes

People have realized that the old way of managing money can be improved.   They are looking for this type of teaching.   By leading a group, you are helping invest in a life skill that can help someone achieve dreams that they previously thought were unachievable.
