Financial Literacy

April is National Financial Literacy Month.

In Marin, there are three noteworthy events. I really believe this is an important issue and hope that you or someone you know can utilize some of these valuable resources.
Not in Marin? Google “Financial Literacy Month + your town/city” and see what events are planned for your locale.
