On Sat March 25, I had the pleasure to speak to a non profit organization Tallom Foundation Inc. that caters to the empowerment of young girls from the ages of 12-18 years old on the topic of Financial Literacy, why it’s important and how they can start taking control by forming good financial habits and mindset.
The Executive Director Amarimba Charles is doing an amazing job and strives to encourage, inspire, and assist at risk inner-city youth and their families. Her next project is helping to sponsor these girls as they prepare to go off to college. If you would like to be a part of this initiative and support this great cause please connect with her directly.
Check out the video but without being a spoiler alert here are just some of the main dimes I dropped on these young girls so that they too can begin to stack their own COINS:
- You should learn to spend less & shop smart
- You should learn to save more. A great app I highly recommend everyone to use is to help you save more money effortlessly and without even a budget is Digit. To sign up click http://bit.ly/digitco-freemoney
