My kids, who are all grown now, appreciate the lessons they learned after they left home. Surprise, surprise! 😉
My husband and I always shared our best practices and knowledge we had with our children. The saying “If I knew then what I know now”, often comes to my mind and I find myself saying–things could have been so much different. Maybe they would have and maybe not. We can’t change history, we can only review the lessons and learn from it.
Once I started working for a bank, I realized how much I didn’t know about personal finances and decided to attend an accounting and finance class while pursuing my MBA. To one who is given much, much is required. So, I decided to share this knowledge with those who have made the decision to move out on their own, whether that decision was voluntary (going off to college) or not (aging out of foster care). Living on Your Own with Entry Level Wages, will help young people just starting out on their path to adulthood, and provide those who’ve already been on their own with some insider tips on how to handle three of the most pressing issues we face during our lifetime:
1. Obtaining housing and transportation
2. Managing Debt and;
3. Saving for the future.
If you have any questions, please feel free to leave your comments and I’ll respond to them as quickly as possible.
Wishing you peace and prosperity,
P.S.- the PowerPoint has worksheets that can be downloaded and I’ve also added the option to view full screen so that it can be seen on any device.
