Preparing for your Financial Year Ahead


Organizing your personal finances can be overwhelming especially if you don't know where to start. Financial goals are the anchor to all financial planning and provide both the motivation and a starting point. Join Baruch alumnus Alan Chen ('17), who will discuss various real-life examples and strategies to achieve your short and long-term financial goals.

About Alan Chen ('17):
Hello! My name is Alan and I'm an alumnus of Macaulay Honors College at Baruch College. You would think after attending business school, I would know how to manage my personal finances. Unfortunately financial literacy is not a skill taught in schools. I come from a low-income family and have seen firsthand the negative effects of poor money management and not saving early enough for retirement. My goal is to help people retire happily. By day, I write code as a software engineer; by night, I study financial literacy and create YouTube videos about the subject.
