The book was written as an opportunity to address financial issues that young people are not even aware of as they start their work life.  It is a guide for people to learn how to live well, financially.  It gives steps and processes to create habits that can be carried long into retirement.  This book is not only for young people as it offers guidance to people seeking to hire money planners and provides pertinent information when seeking these services.
 
Questions were fielded and President Winters adjourned the meeting.
