Join us for a six-week workshop where we will learn to create systems for success, spending plans, debt reduction strategies, and uncover the mysteries of the credit score and more. You will leave with a framework and mindset to manage your money, along with a renewed sense of optimism and an empowering, “I can do this” attitude.
