Every year roughly 3 million senior high school students graduate and hit our nation’s streets. Sadly, very few have the financial education they need to become financially independent. According to the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy, only 3 states require at least a one-semester course devoted to personal finance.
Denise Winston is out to change that! It is hard to find anyone more uniquely qualified or passionate about connecting with our nation’s teens and young adults on the topic of personal finance. Denise is on a mission to inspire and empower them to take control of their financial lives. Not only is Winston a 25 year former banker but she has lived on her own since age 16… she knows all too well the struggles our teens face every day… she gets them and they get her.
Winston founded “Money Start Here,” a financial education company, in 2009 to change the face of our nation’s financial health by putting educated consumers on our streets and into our workforce. Denise’s only agenda is to provide the best financial information people can use. Whether through DVDs, seminars, television, print or radio, her goal is to empower Americans to understand and take control of their finances.
If you would like to join this groundbreaking movement, let’s talk. Our educational system is failing and is in much needed support from local business and major corporations. Never ending budget cuts, higher expectations and lack of parental involvement continue to push our educational system to the brink of disaster. With the financial support of corporate America, Money Start Here provides inventive, cutting edge ways to support the system and teach our teens fundamental financial life skills. These skills, learned in a way that teens relate to, will translate into competent members of the corporate workforce and our communities.
Full and half day financial street smart boot camps are also available.
