November 19, 2019 
If you are one of the many people for whom the word “budget” is the same as the word “denial,” you may be surprised to learn that the opposite is true. A well-designed budget is the best way for you to reach goals and achieve financial independence – without having to sacrifice all of life’s pleasures.

The Psychology of Spending
November 21, 2019 
Do you ever wonder why you left the mall with $500 worth of clothes when you were not planning to get anything or bought one pair of shoes over another? It is not just personal preference. Psychologists have found that there are several forces that govern our consumer behavior and cause us to make decisions that are not necessarily rational or in our best interest. However, understanding why we buy what we buy can help us make better decisions in the future. 
Why is it important to make smart spending decisions? Overspending can take away from important saving goals, like a down payment for a house, college, or retirement. 
Join us for this 45-minute webinar as we cover factors that commonly affect the psychology of our spending, including: 

  • The Role of Advertising 
  • Keeping Up With the Joneses 
  • Spending Habits 
  • Impulse Buying 
  • Bargain Hunting 
  • Retail Therapy 
  • Money as Love 
  • I’ll Worry About Tomorrow, Tomorrow

Using Credit Cards Wisely
November 21, 2019 
Using credit cards in a responsible way can reflect well to lenders, open up job opportunities, help you qualify for housing and even get you better rates on insurance. It also allows for peace of mind, knowing that you can use credit cards to cover emergency costs or as a widely-accepted form of payment when you travel. On the other hand, credit cards can also be a major temptation to spend money on items you cannot afford. Join us for this free seminar to learn how sticking to a few guiding principles and staying vigilant can help you successfully use credit cards to achieve your dreams and get you closer to your goals.
