Do your attitudes and behaviors toward money affect your life and relationships? How can you improve your relationship with money? How can you take action to change your finances? We will explore what it takes to develop and sustain good habits while deepening our understanding of critical strategies to improve our financial situations. We will pay special attention to the foundations of finances such as creating and monitoring a budget, managing credit, avoiding debt, and protecting your money and identity from fraud, theft and our own bad spending habits.
