Over the last month, credit counseling agencies and debt relief companies have been putting on workshops to offer consumers free information about money management. As National Financial Literacy month draws to a close, there is still much to be gained from companies looking to educate consumers about debt and finances.
The workshops being offered around the country as part of National Financial Literacy month are valuable and free. Offering information on simple financial concepts like budgeting and saving, to learning about debt traps and how to use credit wisely, these seminars are a great tool for taking the first step towards financial freedom. Even tips on retirement planning and investment strategies can be found at such workshops.
Although April is a month for boosting consumer awareness about financial matters, any time of year is a great time for reviewing ones finances. Credit counseling companies aren’t just for bankruptcy filers. In fact, they offer a wide range of services that anyone can benefit from all year. So even if you don’t get to a free workshop by the end of this month, make a plan to attend one of many affordable courses to freshen up your finances.
