Today, Financial Literacy month comes to an end. For the first time, I joined with other personal finance bloggers in recording a series of videos on financial topics. I hope you have enjoyed them but more importantly, I hope they have been useful to you or someone you know.
However, it seems we have a lot more work ahead of us. A recent USA Today article indicates that: “the Treasury Department and Department of Education have teamed the past three years to assess financial literacy in U.S. high schools, and the results haven’t been pretty: the average score of almost 76,900 students in 2010 was 70%. Last year’s testing of about 84,000 students and this year’s of about 80,000 students were both a point lower: 69%.” The article also indicates that our young adults (20-29 years old) also struggle with financial knowledge.
I firmly believe everyone is capable being successful with their finances and sometimes it is just a matter of getting a little help. In our culture we are very used to getting help from a personal trainer to help us get on a good exercise program or getting help from a nutritionist to optimize our diet. Could you use some outside help with your finances?
A financial coach/counselor can help you in the following ways:
- Help you understand your current financial situation.
- Provide you specific recommendations for making the necessary changes in managing your finances.
- Inject hope into your particular situation.
- Provide excellent services with the utmost confidentiality.
As a financial coach, I will always offer you information and education built on biblical principles for managing finances. If you need help getting on a budget, building an emergency reserve, or breaking out of the slavery of consumer debt, contact me today. We offer a 30-minute no-cost, no-obligation consultation.
If you are struggling with finances I know how you feel because I have been there. I know what it is to feel lost and without hope, thinking there is nowhere to go. However, with God’s grace and lots of help, I learned how to gain control of my finances. There is a way to win with your money and I can show you that way. There is always Help and Hope for Your Finances.
“Without consultation, plans are frustrated, But with many counselors they succeed.”
Proverbs 15:22 (NASB)
