Ep 7 – Financial Discipline Today for a Bright Tomorrow

Financial planning can be a daunting task. It’s like going to the dentist — you may be scared to take initiative, but you know that if you can just muster up the courage to start, you’ll be much better off.

Your finances can feel like a huge mystery – your paycheck gets automatically deposited, you swipe to pay for things, and you rarely check your account balances, except to make sure you’re not in the red. Many people feel alone living paycheck-to-paycheck, not putting money away for the future, and feeling like they’re a bit stuck. But in reality, if you’re feeling that way, you’re likely part of the majority. 

You know there’s a lot more you could be doing to plan for your future and make your money work for you, but you may not know where to start. Many people feel like they don’t have any extra money to put away. Others may want to take that next step like a car payment or even mortgage, but not have the credit to do so.

On this week’s episode, we’ll cover a multitude of topics to help you get set up for a brighter financial future. Whether it’s building or re-establishing credit, tackling student loan debt, or taking advantage of first-time homebuyer programs, we’ll cover it all, A to Z.

Experts Brian McManus (SVP of Lending, First Federal Bank of Wisconsin), Fernando Campos (Neighborhood Development Program, United Community Center), and Jeff Condit (Youth Programs Director, United Community Center) join to guide listeners and provide valuable insights. Listen in, and you’re sure to learn a lot.
