Letter From Nancy

Hi Friends,

You may have noticed…

It is more critical than ever that we begin to teach our youth financial and life success skills to help them reach their full potential and live meaningful, abundant lives.

What’s the cost of not doing this?

Financial stress impacts every area of life from mental focus in the present moment, to increased stress hormone levels causing mental anxiety and sleeplessness. These factors eventually impact long-term health, relationships, career and everyday well-being. Lack of knowledge in this area of life can lead to devastating credit card debt, bankruptcies as well as the more human factors of low self-esteem, depression, relationship challenges, health issues, and sometimes crime. When people live with severe financial stress they are living in a type of tunnel vision “survival mode” which makes it harder to make wise long-term decisions, eat healthy food (more expensive), find free time to have fun with family and friends, be patient with others, and be optimistic about the future. This impacts everyone directly or indirectly, including the next generation. When you look at the stats, it’s clear this is a national and international epidemic.

Our youth deserve to have hope for their future and learn the financial education and skills they need to be personally successful and fulfilled, and our world needs them to have the opportunity to reach their potential and share their natural talents and gifts.

As Ghandi once said “the future depends on what we do in the present.”
