Tompkins VIST Bank  recently sponsored Jill on the Money, an event at which Jill Schlesinger, an Emmy nominated business analyst for CBS News and KYW News Radio feature, gave insights on how to make your financial wrongs into financial rights. Schlesinger talked about her book, The Dumb Things Smart People Do With Their Money. Bala Cynwyd Branch manager Jen Lifsted said she learned a lot from Schlesinger’s presentation and found it to be very timely.

Schlesinger’s book illustrated the thirteen pitfalls through human stories, and captured the hearts of her audience with the down to earth and simple approach of financial aspects.

“We at Tompkins VIST Bank were thrilled to have sponsored this great event, and help customers learn more about financial topics,” Lifsted said.
