FINANCIAL LITERACY »
at West Advisory Group, we recognize that financial literacy is
the key to stability, development, and growth in our community.
While many people become successful doctors, lawyers, scientists,
and engineers with substantial salaries, the fact remains that the
majority of Americans sorely lack the most basic of financial management
skills. The painful truth is that no matter how large a salary one
takes home, a cavalier attitude towards money can lead to complete
and utter ruin.
repercussions of poor financial decisions go far beyond credits
and debits. Marriages are destroyed by disagreements concerning
money. Lives are ruined through the constant stress and financial
anguish that comes with not being responsible with one’s income.
The economy suffers greatly when homes are foreclosed upon and bankruptcies
are filed due to overwhelming credit card balances and staggering
income-to-debt ratios. We want to implement changes in the spending
habits of youth that will reverberate for a lifetime.
