 A Note from our Director…

Hi, My name’s Elisabeth, and as the Executive Director for Chalkboard Financial, I know the stress you and your teen may feel. After high school, I merrily strolled along to college acquiring student loans, credit cards, and other debt. I wasn’t living frivolously, but the lack of understanding in goal setting, budgeting and planning (and the naive thinking after college I’d get a “real” job and be able to afford everything) not only left me broke after graduation, but strapped to pay huge loans. The harsh reality of payments coming due came crashing in. Entry level salaries didn’t meet student loan payments. It’s a scary place! At Chalkboard Financial, we’re committed to preventing debt in the first place, to stop the cycle before it starts, relieving our next generation of unnecessary financial burden.
