As you know, I’ve partnered with Shalena Diva to provide financial education tips to her audience. Many of us have seen the photos of 50 Cent after he lost all that weight for a new role, but how many of us thought about the financial lessons that we could learn from it? There are 3 lessons to be learned from 50’s weight loss and I share them in this week’s video for Shalena Divas’s site.
I’m so pleased to tell you that the makers of Default: The Student Loan Documentary have partnered with Bigger Than Your Block to include the trailer for Default in all copies of my second book, 10 Things Students Need to Know About Money.
As you know, my work educating folks about how important personal finance is includes college costs as well. Right now paying for college is one of the biggest challenges many families have. Traditionally, taking out loans has been the way many college students have bridged the gap between costs and available funds. While loans are not bad in and of themselves, many students weren’t sure of what they were getting themselves into and found themselves with a mountain of debt. Default: The Student Loan Documentary will help families better understand loan products. I’m proud that this informational documentary trailer will be available with 10 Things College Students Need to Know About Money.
