“While our Government is taking decisive action to promote financial stability, our Nation’s prosperity will ultimately depend on our willingness as individuals to empower ourselves and our families with financial knowledge.”
I like this statement. Our nation’s prosperity depends on us; not only as wise money managers, but also as income generators and job creators. How are you empowering yourself, your family and/or your community financially?
