Teens learn about Finances!

Nick Van Jaarsveld, Edward Jones Financial Advisor, visited the Sedro-Woolley Teen Center on February 4th as a guest speaker for the Money Matters program! The Club Members learned the finer points of investing and stocks as well as the importance of saving the future. Teens also got tips on how to “pay yourself” by investing in companies whose services they actually use, for example, buying stock in the phone company that you have a plan with. Two of the best tips the group got from Nick was that stocks are available to anyone, regardless of age, and that you should invest in things you know but to keep in mind that the bigger the company the more expensive the stock. Thanks Nick for keeping Sedro-Woolley Teens informed and helping them launch their savings and investing careers.
