HCC to offer personal finance classes

March 01, 2007

The Hagerstown Community College Center for Continuing Education has two upcoming classes for students interested in learning more about personal finance and wealth building.

"Invest in Your Debt" will be Monday, March 26, and "Spend Smart" will be Tuesday, March 27.

Both are from 6 to 9 p.m. at the HCC Valley Mall Center and are taught by Ray Goss of Indiana, Pa., a certified consultant for Premier Financial Solutions Inc.

"Invest in Your Debt" teaches a debt elimination system and is designed for anyone who wants to live a debt-free, stress-free lifestyle that leads to financial independence. The course teaches students how to pay off credit cards and car payments in one to three years, then pay off a 30-year mortgage in another three to four years - saving more than $100,000 in interest payments. Students are asked to bring a list of their debts, along with monthly balances and payments. Students will need a calculator. The fee for "Invest in Your Debt" is $46.

"Spend Smart" teaches students to capture more of their dollars by using a simple, unique "reverse budget" technique that plans your savings rather than tracking your spending. The course will help you find extra money needed to get ahead. The course covers an easy-to-use reverse budget and ways to save on insurance, groceries, automobile, utilities, interest and more. Students are asked to bring a calculator. There are no financial planning, investment or insurance programs offered in this course. The fee is $46.

To register for these courses, call 301-790-2800, ext. 236.
