Money Smart Week® Indiana

By
Mortgage and Lending with Canopy Mortgage, LLC NMLS 124492

Today kicked off the 4th annual Money Smart Week® Indianaand will continue until Saturday, October 17th. For those who are not familiar, Money Smart Week is a series of more than 210 free educational classes, seminars and activities designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances.

"Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like." - Actor Will Smith

It's a shame that money doesn't come with an instruction manual because we all need to know how to spend it, save it and borrow it wisely. That's why the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has collaborated with financial institutions, not-for-profits, schools, libraries and a host of others to support financial education in Indiana.

If you or someone you love lives in Indiana, check out the complete calendar of events scheduled.

This sounds like it could be a very educational and necessary for some.  Is there anything scheduled close to Valpo?  I could not find it on the schedule.

Irene, You will find all the designated seminars being held in Lake County, Indiana as they also participate in Money Smart Week® Illinois when Chicago hosts in the spring. By the way, you can also reach out to my team for several of the courses as we have done them for community centers throughout Porter County.

Thanks for the info, James.  What a great idea to hold courses in community center and give back to the community.  Do you teach some of the classes?

Irene, my office has done educational seminars for the Westchester Public Library, the Hammond INnovation Center, the Swanson Center, the Duneland School District and several large businesses within the region. If you would like us to speak in front of any particular organization, please ask.

 

BTW: We missed you at the Realtor Mastermind last week.
