Money management problems are now the number one reason students drop out of college. Many that do graduate often find themselves with so much debt, that their career choice cannot support the payments.
Presented over 500 times at colleges all over the country, Peter will lead you on a hilarious tour of the money maze. In this interactive program Peter will serve up a bunch of “start now” strategies that will help you manage your debt, control your spending, protect your identity and increase your credit score, all without ever getting a credit card.
