While students spend a lot of time studying math, science or history in high school, the schools have done a poor job of educating students on how to manage their finances. That lack of financial knowledge can create bigger problems as college students try to handle college costs and real world expenses once they graduate.
Financial expert, Rick Bloom, from Bloom Asset Management in Farmington Hills will provide tips for good personal financial habits for college. He will also look at ways college graduates can avoid some financial pitfalls once they enter the work world and have to deal with paying off college loans and incurring other expenses. As Rick Bloom always says, it’s not how much you make, but how much you save.This presentation will help students and graduates learn more about being fiscally responsible with their personal finances.
Rick Bloom is a founder and partner in Bloom Asset Management and the law firm Bloom, Bloom &Associates in Farmington Hills and is a twice-weekly financial columnist for the Observer & Eccentric Newspapers. Rick has also been featured on WXYZ-TV Channel 7’s “Don’t Waste Your Money” segment.
