Financial planning is a key component of adulting, but--believe it or not--it's not an easy task at first. According to a 2018 study, nearly a third of young adults lack financial literacy. This causes them to struggle with budgeting, saving, and protecting, which are some of the skills required to make good financial decisions. When a person doesn't have those skills, they are more likely to fall victim to overspending, predatory lending, and ever-increasing debt.

To enhance their financial planning and management skills, 504ward will host a virtual workshop on Tuesday, November 16 for adults who are interested in improving their money management skills, which will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Led by Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Company's Mortgage Loan Originator Marina Manzanares, Facet Wealth's Senior Client Success Manager Eddy Jurgielewicz, and Edward Jones's Financial Advisor Daniel Toro, participants will gain an understanding of various forms of financial planning such as wealth management firms, real-estate investments, and 401k plans. After the workshop, participants should gain a full understanding of financial planning, which will help them to live a healthier, financially stable future.

504ward is a non-profit collaborative organization that is dedicated to helping young New Orleans professionals become successful. Their goal is to connect new and native New Orleanians "to key events, people, organizations, and opportunities throughout the city."
