LIVE ON-LINE EVENT: Managing Finances With A College Student

I recently had the opportunity to teach parents of incoming college students about how to “manage finances with their college student.” I am honored to say that the talk was extremely well received, and the parents gave incredible feedback.

This made me think of you, the readers of this blog. Chances are pretty high that you either have a college student, will have one some day, or you know someone who has one in their household right now.

Because of this, I’ve made the decision to teach this powerful content “FREE OF CHARGE” in a LIVE ON-LINE EVENT on Thursday, August 8th, at 8:00 PM Eastern (7:00 PM Central).

If you have a college student in your life, you don’t want to miss this great opportunity. Here are just some of the subjects that will be covered:

  • Importance of budgeting
  • Credit scores
  • How to handle credit and debt
  • How to manage student loans
  • Establishing clear financial arrangements with your student
  • Plus much more!

Here are the details:

  • DATE  Thursday, August 8th
  • TIME  8:00 PM Eastern Time
  • WHERE  On-line live event
  • COST  It’s free!

Space is extremely limited, so be sure to reserve your place now by clicking the link below. Once you register, you’re spot will be reserved and the link for the live on-line event will be sent to you. You will also receive a reminder just before the event goes live.

WORDLE: I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. Book

There is a new tool I have discovered on the Interwebs called Wordle.   You can plug in a bunch of text, and Wordle will produce a word picture for it.

I took the entire text of I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. and plugged it in and Wordle produced the following picture:

Awesome!   The words “Money”, “Budget”, “Debt”, “Month”, and “Insurance” all stand out to me.
