From AFCPE President Glenn Muske
March 09, 2009
As I make my first attempt at a blog, the Dow has reached a 6 year low. What does that mean for those of us in AFCPE? What can we do? Is this a “teachable” moment? And if it is, how and when do we approach the topic and those looking for help?
I would like to say I have the answers, but I don’t. Perhaps though, we in AFCPE might be able to help get people back on the right track. I know that in every issue of our newsletter and our journal my knowledge increases. Plus at every conference I add more tools to my toolkit. But getting an audience to listen and then getting long-term behavioral change is a challenge. The economic picture we now face is nothing new; maybe somewhat larger but maybe not. How do we, as individuals and communities, come out the other side stronger and more capable of being in control of our financial situation?
I am a social entrepreneur looking for AFCPE to seize this opportunity. But how do we get it done?
