Financial Literacy Month And The Art Of Starting Over

HOUSTON, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Over the last few months, Money Management International (MMI) has been immersed in an awareness campaign focused on the process and importance of breaking ties with poor financial habits.  More specifically – the process of breaking up with Debt


Being that April is National Financial Literacy Month, there couldn't be a better time to take the first step in redefining relationships with finances. Taking the first step is easy!  Simply visit and take the pledge to kick debt to the curb for good, and begin creating a healthy, more sustainable relationship with money.   

The entire month of April is focused on creating a "fresh financial start," said Tanisha Warner, communications manager at MMI. "Everyone loves a blank slate — it's a chance to start over. It's a new beginning. It's the ability to take all past financial mistakes and use them to plot a new — better — course. And that's exactly what we aim to help consumers do throughout Financial Literacy Month."   

As with any breakup, the process of ending bad relationships with debt is no easy feat. Which is why the financial educators at MMI encourage consumers to join the more than 11,000 people who have taken the pledge to use this time to join together and start the journey towards financial wellbeing.  In addition to the easy step-by-step process on, MMI's fans and followers will be sharing their experience Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.  

MMI also encourages consumers to review the series of blog posts featured throughout the debt breakup campaign — from the Debt breakup letter to Sara's debt breakup story. While there, subscribe to MMI's newsletter and future blog posts to stay in the loop on additional tips to help break the ties from debt and bad financial habits, and learn how to create a stronger and healthier relationship with money. Visit, take the pledge, and create a better financial future!
