What are steps to save in the military that you can take right now? Saving money is the foundation of financial success. Having money set aside for emergencies and opportunities is essential in your money management tool belt.
Lila Quintiliani is here to talk about all things money-saving in the military community. Lila is an Active Duty Army spouse, veteran, mom of two, and the Military Saves Senior Program Manager. Previously she worked as a Personal Financial Counselor on military installations worldwide and as a contracted subject matter expert for content for the Department of Defense’s Office of Financial Readiness.
Lila and I discuss the power of saving automatically and for the unexpected. We also discuss the themes of Military Saves Month and the resources and tools the program has to help you save money all year long. We also talk about teaching kids about money, letting them make money mistakes early, and the importance of communication.
