Financial literacy rocks, AOF learned this Tuesday, literally. The band “Gooding” performed in the gym for AOF and members of Raymond James. During the concert, the band’s lead guitarist/vocalist shared his own personal story to inspire young people with lessons of finance and discipline and to help them see their dreams are possible. Some of the stories shared covered the importance of self-reliance, positive influence of education and community mentors, creating a financial savings and investment game plan, debunking the myth and hype of overnight success and managing the rise in expenses as income increases. All were lessons learned from a life in the music business. This was a great program planned almost a year ago. Thank you Raymond James and AOF teachers! – Principal, Northeast High School Academy of Finance, St. Petersburg, FL
