Financial Literacy Month and the Art of Starting Over

Over the last few months we’ve been talking a lot about the break-up process. Specifically, the process of breaking up with Debt. 

Being that April is National Financial Literacy Month, there couldn’t be a better time to take the first step in redefining your relationship with your finances! 

We encourage you to review the series of blog posts we’ve featured throughout the debt breakup process — from the Debt breakup letter to Sara's breakup story. And we’ll be introducing new posts throughout the month related to creating a healthy, sustainable relationship with your money now that you’ve decided to kick Debt to the curb. 

 In fact, the entire month of April is going to be focused on creating a “fresh financial start” through financial literacy. Everyone loves a blank slate — It’s a chance to start over. It’s a new beginning. It’s the ability to take all of your past mistakes and use them to plot a new — better — course. And that’s exactly what we’ll be helping you do over the next 30 days. 

 In fact, you can find each step of the 30-day journey at 

And don’t worry, you won’t be on the journey alone! In fact, you’ll be surrounded by 11,000+ people who have all made the very same commitment to financial wellness. Plus, we’ll be tweeting, posting and pinning every step of the way! 

So what are you waiting for? Take the first step today. 

Visit, take the pledge, and let’s create a better financial future together!
