What your parents didn't teach you about finances

Location: Walker Hall 311

Theme: Financial Literacy

Presenter: Ivan Hurtado

If the lottery was the way to get wealthy, millionaires would be paying people to go and stand in line for their ticket. The truth is the road to becoming wealthy isn't easy nor quick. To become wealthy it's not how much money you make in your lifetime but how much money you save and invest during your lifetime. In this session, we will unfold the concepts and habits the wealth learn and implement. These concepts will be easy to understand and no financial background is necessary to join us. I'm so excited to share what I wish I implemented when I was your age.
