Second goalThe second goal is to conduct financial workshops throughout underserved communities. Financial literacy workshops can benefit both youths and adults in my community. According to Sweet and Swanson (2016), two-thirds of Americans would have difficulty coming up with the money to cover a $1,000 emergency.It is important to be financially literate to have a secure future because financial literacyis necessary to make sound financial decisions. My motivation for wanting to hold financial workshops is to make financial education and awareness accessible for underserved communities.

It's wise to build in a cushion for your deadline to have adequate time set aside. I like to break a project down into smaller pieces to get a clear idea of how long a project will take. I also take my goals very seriously, thus remaining committed to achieving them under any circumstance. 3
WeaknessesIn week one, my main weakness was my lack of leadership skills and have remained throughout the course. While I am extremely confident in my education and skills, I usually don’t feel confident with taking the lead when presented with a task and usually avoid public speaking unless it is absolutely necessary. Another internal weakness is that I have a strong, compulsive
