What you will learn:
Attendees will learn how to overcome common barriers to early-career wealth building, and will walk away with an actionable five-year plan for personal financial development.
Our youngest generation to enter the workplace faces a future with hybrid work offices, uncertainty in the financial markets, high accumulations of debt, and a competitive landscape for earnings early in their career. Furthermore, media and marketing may take advantage of a lack of financial education to the detriment of consumers. How can individuals navigate this environment, and what tools can help Gen Z and future generations have an opportunity similar to predecessors? This course provides the tools and resources to help avoid costly financial decisions and amplify prudent decisions as we build a game plan for the future.
Why does this matter? Gen Z will compete with all generations for jobs and resources with limited earnings, experience, or guidance. Developing a plan provides the best opportunity to establish achievable goals in an uncertain environment.
