Webinar to Discuss Setting, Achieving Financial Goals

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Penn State Extension will offer a free webinar aimed at helping participants stay focused when making financial decisions. 

“Your Money Matters: Setting Money Goals,” which will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sept. 28, is designed for the public, human services providers and anyone interested in developing a healthier relationship with money, building a realistic spending plan and working toward financial goals.

“Without a financial destination or a plan, individuals often find themselves on convoluted paths toward meeting their needs, desires and dreams,” event organizers said in a news release. “Clear goals make it possible to celebrate accomplishments and the small steps taken toward goal achievement.”

According to organizers, those attending the event will increase their understanding of the importance of goal setting, become familiar with SMART goals, increase their ability to identify steps to goal setting, demonstrate setting SMART financial goals and learn tips and ways to commit to and achieve goals.

Participants will receive a copy of Penn State Extension’s Build a Budget workbook to set them on a course for regular money management.

The webinar is free, but participants must register by 12:30 p.m. Sept. 27 to receive the link. Registrants also will receive access to the webinar recording. For more information and to register, click HERE.
