Activity: Personal Financial Makeovers

The idea of giving individuals special time for group attention is common and can be very valuable.  Individuals simply ask the facilitator to set aside time (20-60 minutes usually) to focus on a particular problem, decision or dilemma.  In some cases, participants share information about their finances or job search or business idea to get feedback.  The facilitator plays an important role in maintaining a tone of respect avoiding unsolicited advice (only solicited advice allowed!)  It’s also important to remind everyone of their commitment to confidentially.
