Veteran of the United States Armed Forces and Certified Educator in Personal Finances teaches money and communication about money in marriage.
(1888PressRelease) January 15, 2009 - As a veteran Air Force staff sergeant, Taffy Wagner, DMin, knows how challenging it is for young engaged women to military service members, newlyweds and spouses to be put in the position of money management when they have not had a chance to get used to the military lifestyle. The excitement of being a bride and saying “I DO” can quickly turn into sadness and feeling lonely because of a deployment or even a short temporary duty assignment. Let’s face it, being “Married to the Military” is its own unique community. Finances are different for military service members and families.
Wagner created Money Talk Before The Commitment Walk and Debt Stops At The Altar financial education program to teach couples how to communicate in a non-threatening manner throughout the lifetime of their marriage. “I believe this course would be a great starting point for military spouses who are placed in the position of managing money for their household.” Wagner said. “I know it is hard for spouses to be “thrown into” managing money when they might not have done well on their own. What I teach will follow them wherever they go and equip them for financial harmony.”
Wagner’s innovative Money Talk Before The Commitment Walk and Debt Stops At The Altar financial education program is a program that spouses can do in the privacy and comfort of their own home. This is the first of its kind for engaged couples and newlyweds. She’s offering a 25% discount to military spouses that purchase this program and is donating 15% of all purchases made from January 14, 2009 to January 30, 2009 to be divided between eMOM, National Military Family Association and Help A ServiceMember Out organizations to reach out to the community she still considers herself a part of.
From her own independent research, Wagner was aware that there was not a financial education program specific for engaged couples and newlyweds. Wagner said, “As a veteran, who has talked with military spouses and had friends that were military spouses, I believed military spouses could benefit from this program as well as civilians. I developed this program to help create financial harmony in marriage versus financial stress and division.”
As a happily married wife of 13 years, Wagner shares about bankruptcy, slow pays, cleaning up credit, the shopper in the house versus the saver and more. Wagner says, “There are many financial issues that couples will face some planned and others unplanned. There is absolutely no reason a couple cannot be equipped with financial guidance beforehand.”
This program is being discounted for the next two weeks. Everyone that purchases this program will also receive a pre-release copy of Wagner’s deployment and financial program, FE4PPDS at no cost.
