I created this website to educate people on financial literacy and empower them to change their relationship with money.
Financial literacy is defined as “the set of skills and knowledge that allows an individual to make informed and effective decisions with all of their financial resources.”
But what’s the major problem with this? LACK OF EDUCATION AND RESOURCES.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat in class wondering when I’m EVER going to use a parabola equation formula to make an important life decision.
Why isn’t it a requirement to understand how to create a budget, what credit is, how to build it, how your credit score affects you, the difference between checking and savings accounts, how to pick the right loans for you, or understanding what interest even is?
I have so many questions about why these things aren’t requirements, because they’re important. Knowledge on all of these topics can be the determining factor of your quality of life.
You shouldn’t have to be a finance or business major in order to receive this information. So cheers to this journey of spreading financial education, one post at a time.
Thanks for joining me!
