FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - PowerWallet, a free online money management and savings platform, is helping start the Great American Recovery movement with access to planning tools and money saving technologies.
When president and tech entrepreneur, Bob Sullivan, teamed up with co-founder Howard Dvorkin, CPA and personal finance expert, they had two goals in mind: to positively impact people's money management skills and help the American economy recover from a lagging down-turn. "As more Americans use PowerWallet to get a realistic picture of their money and expenses, they are first-handedly starting a movement we are calling the Great American Recovery. With the assistance of our free online platform, they are using technology to pay off more debt, pay their bills on time and responsibly shop for the holidays which will in turn help the economy as a whole perform better," said Sullivan.
With Halloween right around the corner, retailers nationwide are not only rolling out their Halloween ad campaigns but are also gearing up for Thanksgiving and Christmas rollouts. Many Americans are using PowerWallet's simple platform to plan and prepare for a financially responsible holiday spending season. "After getting great personal finance tips and advice from PowerWallet's blog and using their platform to see where all my money is going, I have been able to get a jump start on planning now for holiday expenses," said Vikky Sixtos, a new PowerWallet user.
"We know firsthand that people need help figuring out their finances and with the holidays approaching, expenses grow and we want to help people be smart and use their money wisely. We have dedicated time and resources into this platform because we know people want trusted advice about how to deal with day-to-day money issues and from the feedback we have received so far, I can tell that we are headed in the right direction to help people achieve their own financial recovery," said Dvorkin, CPA and Fox Business columnist.
