The 4-Week Financial Foundation

When you start learning about personal finance, it’s easy to read about what you should be doing with your money — but much harder to figure out how to create long-term strategies in your day-to-day financial life. In this interactive 4-week course with money coach Cindy Zuniga-Sanchez (founder of Zero-Based Budget), students will be given the steps they need to take the practical money advice they read about and actually put those tools into practice in their own lives. Each session will go in depth on one foundational money topic that’s crucial for long term financial success: building a workable budget, creating a sustainable debt payoff plan, setting up a retirement plan, and building credit to help with long-term goals.

Top-Level Takeaways From This Course:

  • Learn how to build a budget, even if you don’t know where to begin and/or have inconsistent income
  • Learn how to incorporate good financial habits into your daily life on an ongoing basis
  • Understand different kinds of debt so you can prioritize which to focus on first
  • How to accelerate debt payoff, no matter how much you have
  • Build your credit whether you’re starting from scratch or improving your current score
  • Learn what investing and retirement opportunities are available to you
  • Set doable retirement and investing goals and make a plan to work towards them
  • Set the right financial goals and actually meet them
