Buying Happiness: The Emotions of Finance
This program was created out of a series of personal and community discussions. What surfaced from these discussions was an apparent need to find a way to begin this discourse. This curriculum is the volunteer effort of the professionals that you will see in the videos and BTC would like to say THANK YOU to all of them. New videos and worksheets will be released every 7-14 days so stay tuned!!
UPDATE! In an effort to create a safe space for all; our initial video recording format will be updated to audio format to protect the safe space of individuals who have volunteered to share their narratives and personal financial journeys for this project. This has created some delays but we will be back up and running with new content soon! Thank you!
