I made the decision to take the Financial Basics workshop because I was really scared about what my finances were looking like. The course was excellent, because it extended over things such as consumerism, investments, debt, all sorts of things. Financial tools that are accessible for everyone are so important, because there is such a wide range of issues that people can run into.
