Your Road Begins at Visions Federal Credit Union
The first thing you must do once you get money of your own is figure out what to do with it. Where's a safe place to stash it for weekly expenses? How am I going to buy a car? What about college? And some day, it might be nice to move into a place of my own. Sure, adults can provide guidance, but ultimately you're going to have to learn how to do it yourself. Here's how to get started...
