Last week, our co-author and daughter, Allison Beacham, accepted the EIFLE “Adult Money Book of the Year” award for our book, O.M.G. Official Money Guide For College Students. Both Michael and I could not attend. But through the miracle of FaceTime, we were able to watch her deliver the following comments. Needless to say, we are pretty proud.
Allison Beacham’s Acceptance Speech – EIFLE Awards Dinner 2017:
I’d like to thank The Institute for Financial Literacy and, of course, the EIFLE judges for this honor. Winning the “Adult Money Book of the Year” award with our book, O.M.G. Official Money Guide for College Students, says that we hit the mark when targeting our audience.
This book isn’t for “freshmen” or “18 year olds.” It’s for the young adults who – for the first time in their life – have to make smart and savvy every day decisions with their money on their own.
