THE CBC POST
Information, education and participation is vital to thriving communities. OURCBC.ORG
My name is Saundra Williamson and I’m a proud campaigner! You may say “campaigning for what?” Campaigning to help educate 1 million families by 2020 on basic financial concepts that are not often discussed and not always understood in homes. I’m married to my king Roger Williamson and we share 6 beautiful children age range 26 to 7 years old. My family moved to Georgia 4 years ago and we currently live in Gwinnett County. I was honored to sit down and share our mission with community leader Sheryl Brown in Fulton County and she invited me to introduce myself on the BLOG.
Most of us don’t wait to become a statistic to know that we’re in trouble. These problems are all around us. They happen to our own family and our friends’ families. It’s ironic that we live in one of the wealthiest countries in the world, but we always have money problems. We can work hard all our lives but retire poor. We do so much to raise our kids just to see them finish college with a lot of debt. Debt becomes a way of life. We don’t have much, and we don’t know much. Nobody teaches us how to manage our money in school. Financial issues are not often discussed, and financial products not always explained. Most people have trouble balancing their own checkbook and reading a financial statement. We use credit cards every day and don’t always understand all the hidden charges. We buy insurance policies and stick them in a file cabinet. We contribute to our 401k and hope someone will take care of it. We all want to have a comfortable retirement, but few have a plan. We may be active spenders but passive savers.
Remember: There is nobody more interested in your financial future than you are, definitely not the government or your employer. It’s your responsibility to learn the simple rules of how money works. Understanding how money works is part of taking care of your family. You can do it. You can control your future. Our staff is ready to come to your schools, your church, your home, wherever and help you build a solid financial future for FREE. Yes FREE!!!
I am very excited to share our cause and help your family. For more information you may reach me @ firstname.lastname@example.org Looking forward to meeting you and your family.
Thank you Saundra, consider teaching a class in SW Atlanta the CBC will certainly host you, let’s plan for 2019.
Hello, kudos on your willingness to serve the people.
Innovation is imperative to reach the needles in the haystack. Populations in SWAT that most need your gift & expertise are disproportionately left with no time in their schedules for prudent development. One approach is collaborating with school principals to implement a series of workshops for many single & married parents. This is one place they frequent often. Timing workshop 1-2 hrs before school ends aid their tight schedules. Just a thought & thanks for your unconditional heart.
Robbie, Thank you so much for your response and suggestion, that was invaluable information that I will share with the CBC’s Education Team at our next meeting. Should you ever want to join us for our bi-monthly meeting please respond here and I will send you an invitation.
