“Too often we find ourselves in a tough economic state on an individual level because of the lack of financial literacy. More recently, we have witnessed our nation undergo a tough economic climate publicly. There are basic tools I am ready to equip people with that will help all of us move forward with a much more savvy flair when handling our finances.
