Improving Your Financial Literacy
Unfortunately, most Americans don’t know how to manage their personal
finances because they were never taught how to do so. Their parents may
have avoided discussing money in front of the kids, and nearly all our high
schools and colleges lack even one course that teaches this vital, lifelongneeded skill.
Some people are fortunate enough to learn the financial keys to success
at home, from knowledgeable friends, and from good books like this one.
Others either never learn the keys to success, or they learn them the hard
way — by making lots of costly mistakes. People who lack knowledge make
more mistakes, and the more financial errors you commit, the more money
passes through your hands and out of your life. In addition to the enormous financial costs, you experience the emotional toll of not feeling in control of your finances. Increased stress and anxiety go hand in hand with not mastering your money where people learn about finances and helps you decide whether your current knowledge is helping you or holding you back.
You can find out how to improve your financial literacy and take responsibility for your finances, putting you in charge and reducing your anxiety about money. After all, you have more important things to worry about, like what’s for dinner.
