My financial goal is to be debt-free, financially stable, and have enough retirement income to live comfortably and help caregivers like myself. I have been taking care of my parents for the last 10 years in which I had to resign from my teaching career for them to be well-cared for. However, as a result, it put me in a place where I could not work a full-time job so I lost a lot of income. Recently, my father passed away and I am my mother’s full-time caregiver. In order to put myself in a good financial position, I need the Financial Wellness Bootcamp to whip me into financial shape. I believe that Visions can help me do this if I work hard and apply the knowledge that I receive from the program.
