Reclaiming our Finances
Abstract: Too many people are afraid of money and are not sure how to manage it properly. They may not have goals or may live paycheck to paycheck, without clear principles for making the most of their money. This workshop will begin to dismantle barriers to proper money management and help participants develop a clear vision for their money, as well as begin to work on a road map for getting there.
