Jan. 24 webinar to provide techniques and tools for making financial goals stick
The road to a successful budget in the new year might begin online.
An upcoming Zions Bank webinar can help viewers accomplish what a recent Journal of Clinical Psychology study dubbed the nation’s third most popular resolution for 2013: “spend less, save more.”
Zions Bank Financial Literacy Manager Don Milne will host the Jan. 24 webinar, “Making Your Resolutions Stick: Budgeting For Your 2013 Goals.” The webinar, to be held from 12:15 to 1 p.m., is accessible by registering online at www.zionsbank.com. Participants can submit questions to Milne, and those unable to watch live can view a recording of the webinar.
Milne will show viewers how to balance the sample income of a couple who spend more than they earn. To implement Milne’s techniques at home, participants will receive a budgeting spreadsheet and may also use the Zions Bank eZ Budget tool online at https://www.zionsbankezbudget.com.
Those inspired by the webinar can continue the momentum by attending budgeting guru Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University, hosted by Zions Bank. Classes begin in February at locations throughout Utah. To locate a class or sign up for the course through Zions Bank’s Eliminate Needless Debt program, email email@example.com or visit www.endprogram.com.
Financial Peace University was founded by national radio talk show host and New York Times best-selling author Dave Ramsey. By age 26, Ramsey had accumulated over $4 million in real estate, had a net worth of over $1 million, and made $250,000 a year. By age 30, he had lost it all. Ramsey rebuilt his financial life based on solid principals of common-sense money management, and now teaches others the lessons he learned the hard way.
The first lesson of the 9-week course, called “Super Saving,” is free to those who want to learn more about the class. Tuition for the full course is $99 per household and includes a comprehensive workbook, an envelope system for organizing cash, access to lessons online, and lifetime membership to repeat the course in the future.
Zions Bank provides scholarship opportunities for single mothers and those with military spouses serving overseas.
