“I witnessed a life-changing experience for two poverty-stricken young men who were students at our school….after all, society expects certain males to drop out of high school and work in low-paying jobs. The students were victorious and took first place in the Milwaukee Finance and Investment Challenge Bowl and are now outstanding students at UW-Madison. They learned from the Bowl to compete and WIN!

- Milwaukee HS Teacher

On the ride home my students were filled with a buzz of excitement from the fun that they had today.  Immediately upon their return today they were talking about the experience with their peers and some were even promptly inspired to spend a couple hours after school tonight working with me on some accounting concepts to better understand course material prior to upcoming exams…your efforts will have an impact that will last a lifetime for many of the students in attendance today.”

“The information I received attending the Money Conference convinced me it was time to stop renting and buy my first home, and that’s just what I did.”

“I’m so grateful that you took the time to come to our school and teach us about saving and investing. With what I know now I’m going to make investing in the stock market a priority when I’m old enough. Thank you Asset Builders.”

I wanted to share with you a success story from this past weekend’s Money Conference in Appleton.  As you know I have been part of the Fox Cities Money Conference for the past 5 years.  On the day of the event I contribute by discussing with attendees their credit report and explaining the current status of their credit history and score.  This year three attendees returned from prior years all with successful, positive changes on their report.  It is very encouraging to be part of this success and notice the changes that this conference is able to make in a relatively short time.”

The Wisconsin State Journal recently named Wally Rendon, Community Activist and Staff Member at Educators Credit Union in Racine, as one of the 48 most powerful Latinos in Wisconsin!

But we at Asset Builders already know that and in fact we’d rank Wally in the top 10!

Wally “gets it” about the importance of financial literacy.  He has been a long-time and steadfast volunteer at our Racine Money Conference and at the summer day camps we conduct for middle school and high school students in Racine and in Kenosha, as well as in the Milwaukee community during his days at South Division High School.
