Sunday is National Financial Awareness Day

Celebrate the beginning of financial independence with National Financial Awareness Day on August 14, 2022! The goal of National Financial Awareness Day is to develop and instill good financial practices that will solidify a person’s current financial status and serve them through retirement.

It may seem overwhelming at first to begin your journey toward financial independence, but everyone has the ability to learn sound financial principles and save up for retirement. As long as you make small changes to your daily habits, you can start to reap great financial benefits. You can even join an investment or money management club, speak to a financial advisor, or read books and blogs about personal finance. Finances become straightforward once we differentiate our wants from our needs.

We all know that money is important to our overall peace of mind. Celebrate Financial Awareness Day the right way by taking a look at where you are now and where you’re going financially. Don’t let bad financial decisions in your past ruin the best years of your future!
