Are you ready to take control of your finances? Would you like to learn more about budgeting and credit? Good news! Local start-up Next Door partnered with State Farm to offer free financial coaching, and they want to help our Columbia alumni!

The event will focus on helping you take meaningful action to improve your finances. The financial coach will start with the basics by helping you scope out a budget with an easy-to-use budgeting tool (even if you hate math). Afterwards, the coach will cover the facts and fables of everything from credit reports to credit cards.

Join us and learn some simple changes that can make a big difference.
