Are you looking for financial freedom? The way to get it is by understanding your finances. Unfortunately, many people just don't understand things from how your credit works and what your credit score means to the steps necessary to take to protect your identity. Fortunately, GreenPath is going to be part of Money Smart Week, from April 5-12, as part of April’s “Financial Literacy Month.”
That means that anyone can have the opportunity to participate in activities and workshops that will focus on financial topics including budgeting, credit and savings. There will be opportunities to attend a free webinars, download a free financial education program, and learn new ways to save money, improve your credit and plan for a better financial future.
Simply log on towww.greenpath.org/moneysmartweek for more information.
Here is the schedule for the FREE financial webinars. Don't be intimidated--you simply log on and listen. Webinars usually have a box where you can type a question. I am also going to add that webinars are not video-conferencing, meaning you will not be seen.
