American Jewelry & Loan was proud to host a successful Financial Literacy Course at their Pontiac store. AJL founder and president Les Gold moderated a panel of financial experts that included representatives from Junior Achievement, Operation Hope, and Greenpath Financial Wellness. Attendees were treated to an expert overview of many topics related to personal finance, including what information is considered when determining your credit score, ways to build and maintain that score, as well as various alternative lending options they might consider.
“It’s very important to be well informed on personal finance matters,” said Gold. “Thanks to our partners, everyone who attended our financial literacy course is aware of the different options available to them and can begin making smart decisions about managing their money.”
In addition to a seminar on operational excellence for family-owned businesses, Les and Seth shared their secret to success with pawnbrokers from all over the country at the 2017 Midwest Pawnbrokers Convention held May 5-7 in Nashville, Tennessee.
