New online school makes it easy for Americans to learn financial literacy and offers a free course for those who would like Bible based tips.
— The lack of financial illiteracy in America is not a new topic, however, considering the present economic turmoil the need for financial education has never been greater.
The confusion and worry in the South Florida community post shutdown led Miami business owner and national author Daniel Shalach to take action. Partnering with Home-buying Educator Shasta Baker and Financial Coach Samantha Quinones, they found a vetted curriculum that was used by over three hundred Fortune 500 companies including Wells Fargo, Verizon, and AmeriCorps and turned it into an online 160 hour complete course.
With the amount of information readily available to the average American, it could be assumed there would be a better understanding of personal finance. Well, that assumption would be wrong. Every three years, FINRA-the major US financial regulator-surveys the population.
Reports in 2019 showed 76% of millennials lacking basic financial knowledge, 40% of student loan borrowers not making payments, 43% of Americans 51-65 have no retirement fund, and women (particularly married women) have far lower income and credit scores than men.

The school is formed as a non-profit to allow for the greatest reach possible. A side benefit is that each student who pays for the course is also paying for a second person who needs it but cannot afford it because of adverse circumstances. The goal is that they learn to manage their income and grow out of that adversity. Then they also may offer to help someone else get the same opportunity they did.
“I love helping people and the best way I have learned to teach is by word, and action. My Father has led me to this place in time so I could reach out and help people but especially those of His household. I know the change financial literacy plays in a person’s life and when that person is serving God with a true desire to build His Kingdom … that is a game changer and in my experience it allows Him to really lead us onto straight paths from a crooked thought-life rooted in generation financial strongholds.” Shalach said,
