MONEY SAVING TIPS

OUT FROM UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF MONEY

We know today’s digital natives are prolific consumers, and that they greatly influence their family’s budget. In the age of misinformation, more than ever before, we’re all vulnerable to high-pressure and hidden tactics. FrogskinU programs are aimed at providing the missing link to the battle for your attention — and money. Students discover what it takes to save and invest for their future goals. They experience risk vs reward, opportunity cost and the law of diminishing returns. They see compound interest in real time — for good and bad. They gain understanding of banking best-practices, the latest and greatest schemes and scams and the pitfalls of plastic. They learn to lower the pressure on your money tree — creating a knowledge base that works.

Multi-media lesson support for group classes available.
