    Buy The Darn Latte: Rethinking the Financial Wellness Picture

    Description: Conventional budgeting advice tells us to cut the small luxuries in life, but does that actually have the greatest impact on our financial health? And if not, what should we be telling students instead? Learn concrete ways to implement money mindfulness in a virtual setting to walk students through three critical aspects of their financial lives and help them shape a budget that is both aligned with their priorities and crafted to create real change.
