You're trying to save money, so you cut out that daily latte you love so much. Right? Wrong. Learn how to live within your means while spending on what matters most to you.

You can find plenty of people willing to offer advice about how to live within your means. But the real secret to wrangling your budget is to live by your unique value system. That’s what this class will help you do: Identify the types of purchases that give you the most happiness, and arm you with tactics for bringing your spending in line with what matters most to you.

Takeaways:
  • A better understanding of your priorities
  • A deeper insight into what you’re currently spending 
  • Techniques for helping to make spending jibe with what you value
  • Behavioral strategies for becoming more aware of your spending habits
  • A whole different way of looking at your money

This workshop is limited to 30 participants and is free to members of the Berklee community. To RSVP, please visit The Society of Grownups event page for this workshop, click "Add to Cart," and then proceed to checkout. You will not be charged anything for this event.

"Can I Have Your Number?:" Understanding your credit score...and why it matters.

Steve Heck Room

Boston
MA
United States

It’s not a pick-up line. No matter what kinds of grownup stuff you try to do—apply for a job, buy a car, take out a small business loan—chances are someone is going to take a look at your credit score. And what they see could mean the difference between "yes" and "no".                                                                                                 

 

Even if you don’t know your credit score, it could be helping or hurting your attempts to reach your grownup goals. In this class, you'll get an overview of different types of debt, as well as a good look at credit scores, credit reports, and why you should care about them (hint: they're extremely important). You'll also learn about free tools and resources to help you manage your credit and debt.

Takeaways:
  • Understand credit scores and reports, including the biggest factors that influence your score.
  • Get tips for understanding different types of debt.
  • Leave with a list of free resources to help you keep tabs on your credit.

Please RSVP using our online Google Form. Space is limited, so please RSVP as soon as you can!
