Are you Financially Healthy?

In this workshop you will understand what it means to be financially healthy – which is so much more than the one score everyone asks you about today – your credit score.  True financial health is based on four key components: Spend, Save, Borrow, and Plan. You’ll also get a chance to confidentially determine your own Financial Health Score and the steps you can take to improve that score.
