Financial Literacy Series The Financial Literacy series is designed to strengthen your skills at managing personal finances and taking control of your financial decision making to assure a secure financial future. Personal financial management is important for people of all income in all life stages. Personal financial management is a set of skills that must be learned. These skills are essential for long-term success at managing personal finances to achieve goals. Spending less than earning is one definition of financial success. You can enhance your financial success by applying financial knowledge and skills to decision making with your money: utilizing tools and techniques to maximize resources; and managing risk or loss to assure long term financial stability. There are 5 modules in this series, but you are not required to attend all modules. Reserve your spot for each of the modules you would like to attend. 1: Budget Development 2: Money Management 3: Consumer Protection 4: Repairing Credit 5: Wise Use of Credit
