Financial Wellness in America
Since the 1970’s, the United States has shifted the burden of saving for retirement from the employer to the employee. Pensions are now a thing of the past, and employees have taken on the sole responsibility for their financial futures. With that responsibility comes stress – the stress of the unknown related to money. Today, we have 80% of the workforce living paycheck to paycheck – with 46% of those employees stressing about finances at work at least 3 hours per week. Financial Fitness Group was created to help fill the void by enabling individuals to empower themselves, to become more profitable and less stressed in their daily lives. The Financial Fitness Groups online education platform was specifically developed to reduce the anxiety, lack of clarity or absence of financial planning that yields uncertainty related to money, including debt, medical bills, saving for retirement or children’s education. Financial Fitness Group impacts people’s lives by giving them the knowledge and information to confidently reach their financial goals.
