Happy April! We all know what that means: longer days, the scent of spring in the air … and a new challenge from LearnVest.
April is National Financial Literacy Month, a time to boost your money savvy and understand the importance of taking charge of your finances.
This month, we want to know about a financial stumbling block you’ve encountered, and how you overcame it.
Maybe it was paying down student loans, getting rid of debt, paying for your kids’ college, or building up emergency savings. How did you figure out that you needed to make a change? A nudge from a close friend or family member? An “aha” moment? An inspirational story on LearnVest?
Whomever we select as the winner of this month’s challenge will receive $250 to put toward his or her financial goals.
