Capitalism got you down? Does money make you panic? Do you avoid bills or hide mail? Does the phrase 'Roth IRA' confound you? Are you convinced everybody learned how to be an adult with money except you?

Part 2 focuses on practical skills including gathering data about your financial picture, creating a realistic budget, steps for moving out of debt, increasing earned income, and establishing achievable, personalized goals for the near future.

This workshop is limited to 20 participants so sign up now! You will need a laptop, access to either Microsoft Office or Google docs, and willingness and desire to start changing your relationship to money.
