The Arming America personal finance event will begin its 2012 tour in Lombard, IL on February 7.

Steve Beaman will personally host the launch of the Arming America personal finance event tour on February 7, 2012. This event is aimed at people who seek to improve their personal finance skills, with an overall goal to improve financial capabilities of people all across the nation.

The first Arming America event will take place beginning at 6:30 p.m. For locations, please call 866 308-3999. The event’s objective is for participants to leave with better knowledge about personal money matters, and a detailed plan for a positive financial future.

The Arming America personal finance tour was recently recognized by the National Financial Educators Council (NFEC) for its commitment to sharing personal financial knowledge in communities across the U.S. “The NFEC commends Steve Beaman’s efforts to share real-world financial knowledge in an entertaining environment. We’ve found that creating an engaging setting where people can learn improves retention rates and moves people to take positive action toward managing their personal finances,” states NFEC’s CMO, Vince Shorb.

While participants pick up personal financial skills, Arming America also treats them to live entertainment “for an evening of fun, enlightenment & entertainment” as stated on the organization’s website. The tour covers multiple topics including how to manage banking relationships, saving money, managing personal budgets, tips for creating sustainable wealth, and how average-income people can create comfortable nest eggs for retirement.

Steve Beaman, founder of Arming America and the Steve Beaman Group—an organization that promotes financial literacy—is hosting the event. Mr. Beaman is a self-made millionaire best known for selling his company (Chicago Investment Analytics) to Charles Schwab. He is a 25-year veteran of the financial services industry, published author and creator of Path to Prosperity – Financial Literacy for the 21st Century.

According to Mr. Beaman, “The New Year brings us new and exciting opportunities as well as daunting challenges. Never before have we seen the economic globalization and large changes to our social fabric occurring with such speed. The Arming America tour is designed to provide people with practical personal financial skills to improve their knowledge and secure their futures.”

The Steve Beaman Group mission is to transform communities, one person at a time. They focus on providing individuals with a holistic education centered on five key areas: personal finance, emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual.

The National Financial Educators Council is a social enterprise organization that promotes financial literacy. They are leaders in the personal finance space. The NFEC supports the efforts of those financial education experts whose teachings meet educational standards yet remain practical in nature to make lasting difference in people’s lives.
