FPU Winter 2019 group starts Tuesday this week!

This is going to be a great group!

My name is John Nash, and I’ll be leading your Financial Peace University (FPU) group. I’m so excited to partner with you as you start your journey toward financial peace! You’re joining millions of families who have chosen to change their lives with this simple step-by-step program.

It’s not going to be easy, and you’re probably going to have some questions along the way. That’s why I’m here: to help you find answers that will inspire you to dig in and keep going!

Our first group meeting is at 7:00PM on Feb 12 in the Community Room at 3301 E Coliseum Blvd, Fort Wayne IN 46805 on the beautiful ALC campus. Remember to bring your workbook!

Feel free to email me at jdnash@alt-fw.org if you have any questions.

I can’t wait to meet you on Tuesday next week! You can do this!

All the best,

John Nash (jdnash@alt-fw.org)

Debt as a means to invoke control


I feel that debt is the single most dangerous threat to America today, leaving 75% of Americans living paycheck to paycheck – they dare not miss one paycheck to stay fed and sheltered.

Living trapped under control of that common financial terrorist state is unnecessary: there is a way out.

There are several basic steps every family (or singles) can begin following that (1) gets us a security buffer so we can temporarily weather loss of income without using credit cards, (2) gets us out of debt legally and ethically so that we are far less vulnerable to economic problems that we cannot control, and ultimately (3) provides our children with paid for college without student loans and a comfortable and happy retirement for ourselves.

It’s not smoke and mirrors magic and it’s not rocket science – it’s common sense steps that anyone can do, for free.

To learn more about how to free yourself and your family register for our next FREE FPU class.

The class is FREE. There is material you can buy from the Ramsey corporation, but the class is free and you are not forced to buy their materials, although if you can afford the $109 they ask for then you will get full web access to their videos, resources, and financial tools. You can still come to class if you don’t buy their materials. It’s called “Auditing”: you can do that! Don’t let the cost drive you off!

The registration link is https://fpu.com/1078640. You can call me at my office Tues-Fri 12:00-2:00 at 260.432.0014 x128  most weeks or email me with questions using the button on that registration link (https://fpu.com/1078640).

2018 Budget Results posted

The 2018 budget has been reconciled and results posted at http://alt-fw.org/public/?page_id=5463. Mostly on target with some exceptions.

Year 2018 was interesting with higher than anticipated maintenance costs, coordination problems that resulted in fewer FPU classes, and of course from fewer classes fewer instructors paid and less expended than anticipated for FPU instruction. FPU materials also cost less than expected (in example, a FPU-Teen digital license cost $10, compared to an FPU membership $109), allowing funds from FPU materials to cover maintenance costs.

In year 2017 we hosted eight (8) FPU classes, but there were delays and problems coordinating schedules with another important organization, so in year 2018 we hosted only three (3) FPU classes, including one (1) using the new FPU-Teen material. In year 2019 we expect to host 10 (nine week) FPU classes (combined total of FPU and FPU-Teen) with much lower maintenance costs. Take a look for yourself and see.
