Opportunity to Join America Saves Week and Promote the Importance of Saving
Unless you’ve recently inherited a large estate, or perhaps won the lottery, saving is critical to reaching your goals. America Saves Week, February 24 – March 1, 2014, is an annual opportunity for organizations to promote good savings behavior and a chance for individuals to assess their own saving status. Foothills Financial Planning supports this effort, and I want to get the word out early to encourage others to participate.
