Dallas South News Wire (FAIM)

Faim Economic Development Corporation has stepped up its role as a leader in addressing local community needs in multiple areas of financial literacy. FEDC is proud to announce the re-launch of its financial literacy programs with the highly anticipated “Get Wealthy or Die Trying” Financial Empowerment Connection to be held on March 31, 2012 at the historical J. Erik Jonsson Central Public Library located in the heart of Downtown Dallas.

This event is FREE of charge and there will be absolutely NO SOLICITATION of services. According to the NCFF Financial Literacy Survey, four in five adults agree they would benefit from advice and answers to everyday financial questions from a professional. “Your attitude about money ultimately determines your wealth. There is no magic formula to attaining wealth, no matter what your profession is,” says Ellis Wamsley IV, founder of FEDC.

To address the community’s needs and its public concerns about finances, FEDC has collaboratively partnered up with Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in furtherance to provide the necessary resources and follow-up programs/workshops for the attendees. In addition, FEDC has also partnered with Tommy Jones, a local financial education leader and economic spokesperson, and KHVN 970AM in an effort to inform the municipal masses.

Also, Mr. Jones can be heard on his weekly financial segment on KHVN every Wednesday at 5:30p.m. “Get Wealthy or Die Trying” will feature other high level speakers from the public, corporate, and faith-based communities featuring panel discussions on a broad range of cutting edge financial topics.

Focus areas will consist of four key subjects with catchy subtitles such as:

  • Credit Smart- “Prisoners of Debt”
  • Small Business- “BYOB”
  • Money Management- “Money Talks”
  • Investing- “The Millionaire Next Door”

The seminar will also include introductory finance and business planning, exhibits, prizes, and a complimentary breakfast and lunch. Early registration should be completed online at or onsite at 10:00am in the foyer of the main auditorium of the library. The seminar will last from 10:30a-4p. Participants may also call the FEDC main office at 214-948-8771 for registration, general questions, and/or directions.
