Farmer Angel Network’s “Financials on the Farm” Program Set for January 13th

The Farmer Angel Network will be hosting the January program “Financials on the Farm”- two-part presentation featuring Peggy Olive, Extension University of Wisconsin financial capabilities specialist -“Helping Others Reach Their Financial Goals

Take the time to consider the dreams that you have for you and your family. Whether your dream is to retire early, send your kids to college, take a nice vacation, be debt-free, or simply to make ends meet each month, having these dreams in mind will help you stay positive and motivate you to keep going. It is OK to dream….in fact, it’s required! Take some time to make a list of those things that you dream about for your family’s future. Have members of your household do the same and then talk about it. Nothing is too big or too small….include them all! In this month’s education series, Peggy Olive from the UW Madison Division of Extension, will share tips related to financial goal-setting, along with some skills to practice for having financial conversations. Part two – DATCP staff, Michael Lochner & Frank Friar will join us highlighting Wisconsin Farm Center financial assistance programs.

There is no cost but pre-registration is required to obtain the Zoom link and digital participant worksheets.
