For the past 6 months I have experienced the privilege of absorbing knowledge, insight and skills from industry practitioners and mentors while meeting and getting to know amazing artists and producers and their work.

The focus for the first week of financial literacy month (Nov 1 - Nov 3) was to 'Achieve Financial Wellbeing'. The definition of this varies from person to person, however the overall message is to ensure that you take control of your current finances and plan/budget for the future.
In order to take control of current finances, the following can be done:
- You're in control - start off by understanding that YOU are in control of your own financial wealth
- Spend within your means - We can't always control our income (as most are limited to hourly wages or a salary), however our expenses can be controlled. - Pay your bills on time - this develops good ethics, helps build your credit and avoids that interest that we all love so much.
To plan/budget for the future, you can do the following:
- Saving is key - as a rule of thumb, they say to save 10% of your pay cheque. may be you can setup a separate savings account that accumulates 10% of your net pay every cheque
- Avoid Surprises - in conjunction with the above, always ensure that you not only earn and spend for current times but also save for periods of tough times (i.e., job loss). the rule of thumb is to ensure that you at least have 3 months worth of funds to cover bills for such situations
These are all just a few of my opinions regarding financial well being. As mentioned before, it differs from person to person. Being financially sound not only ensures that you're able to prevent running 'pay cheque to pay cheque' and prepared for unforeseen financial circumstances, but it in end results in less stress and provides a better quality of life.
Open Day was a blast! From musical performances by our talented students, to art showcases, and face painting - we hope you had the opportunity to see the beauty FCAC has to offer. #openday2017#FCAC#bodymindspirit
With financial literacy month (November) just around the corner, this makes for a great post! The FCAC (Financial Consumer Agency of Canada) strives to strengthen the financial literacy of Canadians and empowers them to better manage money and debt wisely, save for the future and understand their financial rights and responsibilities. This is the 7th year where November’s been dedicated towards this great educational initiative and this year the FLM theme is ‘Take charge of your finances: It pays to know!” There are weekly sub-themes throughout the month to come so stay tuned! 😉 #SimpleCents#ItPaysToKnow#November2017#FCAC#FLM2017
