Many people underestimate the influence their emotions and their sense of self-worth have on their financial decisions. Debt and other financial problems are often the results of subconscious choices that have nothing to do with how much we make and a great deal to do with how we feel about ourselves and how much we understand about why we spend.

This webinar will explore topics covered in a recent survey conducted by NerdWallet and Harris Poll. More than 2,000 U.S. adults were asked “why debt happens” and you will be surprised by both the results and by what our experts have to say. Attend this webinar if you want new, different and helpful ideas for reducing debt and increasing financial wellbeing.
