Brews & Budgets

We're happy to introduce our new financial education series, Brews & Budgets.  We know talking about finances can be difficult, that's why we've partnered with River Rat Brewery to give you a 'brew' on us. Learn about financial topics while enjoying a free local craft beer. In the series, we will be discussing topics such as setting financial goals, learning about the home buying process, understanding your credit, and understanding the car buying process. 

Brews and Budgets: Financial Goals

The challenge of saving money is something most of us experience whether you are saving for something you really want, saving for vacation, paying off student loans, purchasing a new home, or saving for retirement. Having clear and realistic goals can help.  Setting these financial goals is one of the best ways to manage your finances. But where do you start? We’ll be discussing keys to saving and being realistic with yourself and your budget. Enjoy a craft beer and appetizers on us as we discuss how to save, set financial goals, and key factors to help you understand your credit.
