Credit Education Week Canada 2011
By Susan Jung, MBA
?So what?? you might ask; why do Trustees in Bankruptcy care about Credit Education Week anyway? Well, we are so glad you asked.
Credit Education Week is a week of financial literacy events. Speakers include CBC host George Stroumboulopoulos, and financial writer Alison Griffiths.
Grade 12 students will write a short essay about ?What is the dumbest thing I have ever done with my money and what did I learn from it?”, and first prize is $5,000!
For adults, the subject is: ?The real empowering freedom you get after making it through a wicked desert storm ? that?s what I got when I conquered my financial challenges.? The best entry also gets a $5,000 prize.
Full details can be found on the Credit Education Week Essay Contest webpage.
Hoyes Michalos is not a sponsor of Credit Education Week; in fact, we are not involved with it in any way. So why are we publicizing it here?
Because we believe that credit education is very important, and we are pleased to support credit education.
As bankruptcy trustees we want you to gain control over your financial life. In fact, the law requires every Trustee in Bankruptcy to educate you about all of the options that exist for you to deal with your financial challenges ? imagine that? there is an actual law that makes it impossible for a Trustee to tell you what to do. By law, we have to explain ALL of your options to you, so that you can make the decision that is best for you and your family. Like Credit Canada and all of the other participants at Credit Education Week, a Trustee in Bankruptcy can help you to understand how you can manage your debt, improve your credit and enjoy more peace of mind.
We share the same vision as the founders and participants of Credit Education Week; simply put, Hoyes Michalos and Associates wants to help you to “start enjoying life again”.
So, dare to imagine that there really IS help available ? have a look at the Credit Education Week website ? there are lots and lots of things you can learn just by visiting the site, and even more to learn if you attend one or more of their events.
PEACE OF MIND and a PLAN to START ENJOYING LIFE AGAIN may be just one simple click away.
