Financial education and wellness has become a hot topic, and with good reason. We are experiencing a national crisis; more and more people do not understand how to manage their money, or where to even start. According to Forbes:
- 44% of Americans don’t have enough cash to cover a $400 emergency
- 43% of student loan borrowers are not making payments
- 38% of U.S. households have credit card debt and owe $16,000 on average
- 33% of adults have $0 saved for retirement
