The FOMO Effect - A Panel Discussion

One of the biggest influencers in our world today is social media. As part of Financial Literacy Month we want to open the conversation around the pressures of social media in our world today. We have all felt them, but why don't we talk about them?
We are hosting a panel discussion to talk about these pressures, the impacts it has on our financial wellness, overall well-being and some tips on how you can start saying "No to FOMO"

FOMO; Fear Of Missing Out, is something we have all felt at one point in time.For many, this fear and the pressures of social media can have an impact on our financial wellness. In fact, 72% of people buy something because they saw it on Instagram and 40% of millennials have gone into debt to keep up with their peers.
