Broke

Being Broke Sucks™

The financial program you'll beg to make mandatory for your campus.

FACE IT: you can spend your entire college experience and never once attend a class to learn about one of the most important things, MONEY! According to UCLA, the #1 goal of today’s student is “to be very well off financially.” Yet, of the 4,495 degree-granting colleges in the US, only a handful have financial education in the core curriculum. This isn’t just wrong; it's educational malpractice. Being Broke Sucks is an interactive seminar designed to prepare today's college students for tomorrow by elevating their financial literacy and financial education. We all have to work with money, so it's about time we learn the fundamentals.

The average college graduate will rack up over $30,000 in student loan debt while the national total student loan debt swells past $1.2 trillion and the default rate climbs exponentially. Something has to be done! This session cuts through the jargon and keeps it simple and fun delivering real life examples with practical follow-up actions to improve your financial education and outlook. Discover that becoming wealthy is more than just money. It's a mindset and it’s about creating a wealthy life!
