NWI's Partnership with the Foundation for Financial Wellness

The National Wellness Institute (NWI) has partnered with the Foundation for Financial Wellness (FFW)— whose team includes the former Wellness Program Director at NASA, an award-winning educator, and a top-performing financial advisor—to develop courses that look at financial wellness through the lens of NWI’s Six Dimensions of Wellness model. Typically, people say that after taking part in one of FFW’s learning experience, their employees are less distracted, more engaged, and more satisfied with their work and pay, thus enhancing their overall wellness.

An NWI Education Partnership

Located in Greenwood Village, Colorado, the Foundation for Financial Wellness was founded by its Executive Director Brent Hines. The Foundation’s mission is to improve people's lives by empowering them with the knowledge and motivation to take control over their financial lives. The Foundation’s curriculum is rooted in the principles of Behavioral Finance which makes every class taught by the Foundation unique, engaging, and extremely valuable
