“I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central for TCF Bank. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.” Occasionally I start thinking about the future and how my financial status and savings will affect the years down the line, especially since I may always be a single girl.
Traditionally, people of Color have saved our money in the mattress and then the more knowledgeable of us started saving in traditional savings accounts. Very few of us have taken advanced measures to protect our futures.
Tweet me when you take the Financial Animal Quiz @ClassySharelle!
I was introduced to this informative and fun Financial Animal Quiz by TCF Bank. I know that I have a lot to learn when it comes to my finances, because how to make money work for you and relationships with money were not really topics of conversation at the kitchen table in our home. So I decided to take the Financial Animal Quiz. Luckily, it was really easy and asked me only a few questions...they are questions that are easily relatable and that didn't make me cringe too much when I took the quiz! It was like taking a Cosmo Quiz, but about money!
When I finished it I figured out that my Financial Animal is a Seal, that I like to have fun and enjoy the moment. This is so true, but the quiz also revealed that I also may not be a good saver or think about the future as much as I should.
TCF Bank’s Financial Literacy Resource Center was really informative and easily equips you with practical and impartial information about money management.
I immediately decided that a bank that could relate to me like this was one that I wanted to have an account with, maybe they could help me get my financial house in order. So I contacted them to open an account and they will be calling me to work on some strategies beyond the mattress.
I am excited and a little less anxious about my future as well!...plus its time for me to start house hunting!
How do you prepare for your future?
