"What we find is many people think they'll have plenty of time later in
life to save for the future, or they feel like they have too much debt
or too little income to save very much," said Joye Hehn, Financial
Education Content Manager for Regions Bank. "But the truth is, no matter
where you are in life, the time to prepare for your financial future is
now. And no matter how much, or how little, you have to begin, we have
insights, tools and resources to help you develop a strategy to reach
your financial goals."
Initiatives underway at Regions this month include public events where
anyone interested in learning how to take charge of their finances can
attend and gain valuable insights. The high-energy, high-impact events
