Earlier this year, GBB hosted another installment of Money 101, our attempt to improve financial literacy. Kids and grandkids of our clients were invited to spend a few hours learning about stocks, the dangers of debt and credit, financial planning, and entrepreneurship. The kids asked great questions and everyone enjoyed the day!
**Stay tuned for the series of 6 videos that will highlight the day's topics of Investments, Financial Planning, Credit, Evaluating a Job Offer, Paying for College, and Entrepreneurship.
