Virtual Workshop of the Month: Smart Money, Smart Moves

November 20, 2020 | Filed under: CareerSource Broward News

Did you know that 78% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck? If an individual becomes unemployed, he or she would not be able to meet their financial obligations because they rely solely on their paycheck to pay for expenses. Based on this fact, it is easy to see why according to a 2017 CareerBuilder report, 66% of the population would struggle to finance a $1,000 emergency. 

Chances are that you or someone you know is in these circumstances. Is it possible to turn these numbers around, and if so, how? The good news is that it is possible to attain economic prosperity – a focus of CareerSource Broward. Even better news is that you can do this even with a small income. 

You can learn all this in more by attending our virtual Smart Money, Smart Moves workshop, which teaches simple strategies to manage personal finances. Topics covered during the online seminar include taking steps to assess financial behavior, creating a practical spending plan, building savings and finding affordable banking options. These free, one-hour workshops are offered on Mondays at 4 p.m. and Thursdays at noon.
