Tips on how to improve your financial confidence and get involved in Talk Money Week:
· Talk to someone you trust: If you feel able to, speak to a family member or friend about your concerns. They may be able to offer advice, or you could set goals together.
· Figure out your money goals: Do you have long-term or short-term goals and aspirations? It’s important to measure your success and celebrate your achievements.
· Use resources: Take advantage of workshops, online articles, and books to enhance your knowledge.
· Speak to a professional: If you don’t feel comfortable speaking to someone you know or you don’t know where to start, that’s okay. Financial advisers, including those here at National Friendly, can support you with any questions or concerns you may have.
