Military Appreciation Month 2021 Week 1 Celebration

in Save by Lacey Langford, AFC®

My Military Appreciation Month 2021 Week 1 celebration is underway. For the entire month of May 2021, I’m doing a series of events to celebrate and show appreciation for the military community. I’ll be doing a live show every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on YouTube, LinkedIn, and Facebook, where I’ll interview fun guests on military life, money, and entrepreneurship. Every Tuesday, I’ll be hosting a fun giveaway, and on Thursday, I’ll be releasing a “how-to” video on various topics.

Before I get into all of the events, I first want to say thank you to my sponsor, Self Financial.

My Military Appreciation Month celebration is supported by Self. More than a million people have used Self’s Credit Builder Accounts to build their credit and savings. You can learn more about Self and the work they do at

To kick off the month of celebrations, I interview Lauren Bringle. Lauren is a fellow Accredited Financial Counselor working with Self Financial, which is a financial technology company with a mission to increase economic inclusion by helping people build credit and savings so they can build their dreams. We talk about easy money management tips and advice.

Next, I interview Ryan J. Clark, the founder and President of Qube Money. He began his career in the real estate market, flipping five houses at the age of 18. Later, as a mortgage broker, he found that his true passion was teaching people about money. In 2004, Ryan entered the financial services industry, where he became an award-winning financial planner. He’s also the author of The Order of Wealth.


Military Appreciation Month How-to Video

I love to learn new things, especially when it’s a recipe I can read and follow on my own. To start the “how-to” party, I credit this video with the steps you can take to build and fix your credit. It’s full of information and resources to help you in the process. Here it is, How to Build Credit (and Fix it).
