Financial Study Hall: Tuesday, October 13, 1:00-3:00, Boulder Workforce
This unique workshop offers you the dedicated time you need to focus on any financial projects you may be putting off. Come and work alongside others who also feel that having some dedicated, quiet time can help you to move forward on your goals. You can use our computers or bring your own to pull those credit reports, enter spending into a worksheet or software program, or review bank and credit card statements. You can also play around with PowerPay.org to calculate how much time and money you can save with a few extra dollars towards your debt. You can even create a sparkly new spending plan that really keeps your values and goals in mind. This time is yours, so feel free to bring anything else you may need to work on! And we can address your financial and homeownership questions, as well! Your instructor is always excited to talk finances with you! If she doesn’t have the answer, she will help you find it! Bonus – We have a portable paper shredder to help you get rid of those sensitive documents in the safest way possible! This is your chance to dedicate time to yourself and your financial goals!
