April is Financial Literacy Month!
National Financial Literacy Month is recognized in the United States in the month of April in an effort to highlight the importance of financial literacy and to teach Americans how to establish and maintain healthy financial habits.
Many of us spend our money without any thought about how it will effect us in the future. We might not even realize that we have poor financial habits until issues arise as a result of it. Ask yourself these questions...
Do you know how to make a budget that you can actually stick to?
Do you have enough money set aside to cover three to six months of expenses in case of an emergency?
Do you know how much money you should be saving for retirement?
Do you know how to read and understand your credit report?
If you applied for a loan, would you get approved?
If you answered "NO" to any of these questions, then you would benefit from financial coaching! Financial literacy is more than just knowing how much money you're saving and spending each month. Our financial coaches can help you understand and strengthen your financial literacy so you know that you're taking the right steps for your goals and your future.
