More than ever consumers need to have a basic understanding of money management so they are able to make informed decisions in today's complex market place. Financing Your Future is a complete personal finance program on DVD. The program consists of five videos that cover topics such as setting financial goals, creating a budget, consumer decision-making, investing in one's own human capital, developing a banking relationship, understanding credit and debt, and building wealth. Each video is complemented with three standards-based lesson plans that educators can use with their students and clients to reinforce the concepts demonstrated in the videos. Conference participants receive the Financing Your Future DVD curriculum, which includes the videos, lesson plans, glossary, and test bank. Also, a guest speaker from the financial industry discusses key economic and financial issues, both nationally and globally, that are likely to be at the forefront for consumers in the coming year.
