FOR SAGA GENERAL MEETING
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2019
There are some topics that we hardly ever discuss at our regular meetings, but that impact all of us.
One of those topics is FINANCIAL SURVIVAL SKILLS and FINANCIAL EMPOWERMENT.
This Monday, February 4, 2019, Amanda Giroux, a member of the Tucson LGBT Chamber of Commerce, a manger at a bank and a volunteer financial empowerment instructor for the local state prison system will present a short talk on teh basic needs for financial survival and how we can set ourselves up to meet our basic goals.
This is not a class on investments and wealth creation, it focuses on t how to apply basic money management, and understanding the impact of credit and credit ratings on our daily lives. Amanda will provide tools that will help you:
- Know exactly where you stand financially at any given time
- Help you identify your short term goals
- Help you identify your long term goals
- Help you distinguish between your needs and your wants
- Help you identify necessities versus luxuries
- Help you plan your gender transition journey
Amanda’s work in this area is not an extension of her work at her bank, but a desire to assist those who have been excluded from our financial system learn how to take advantage of that system. She has several years of success in assisting people re-entering society after being released from our prisons become financially stable and meet their goals for the future.
Amanda promises tools, not miracles. But these tools have proven successful for those at all levels improve their financial situations.
