UMB Bank executives talk with teen girls about smart spending and saving
Awesome Ambitions, get the information they need to be smart about their finances. UMB last Saturday hosted a half-day seminar called Money Savvy at the downtown Kansas City bank at 1010 Grand Blvd. Almost 20 women executives led interactive break-out sessions teaching the girls about credit, debt, buying a house, renting an apartment, and developing a budget. In one session the girls played a game using candy to learn the difference between wants and needs and how to decide priorities in spending. I also appreciated that the women executives talked about their paths to careers in banking.
