Who is Responsible for Teaching Financial Literacy?

This has been a question that has been weighing on my mind lately. I write and read a lot about personal finances and I wanted to figure out who really is responsible for financial education.

Why Checking Your Credit Report is as Important as Your Yearly Gyno Visit

A lot can happen in 365 days.

Usually, at around the time of my birthday in March, I like to get my yearly doctor check-ups done. It's just easier for me to remember and also I feel like it makes sense since I’m another year older and another year wiser. One other thing that I also like to do during this time is to check my credit report…because my birthday also means another year of being a more responsible adult.

If you are not comfortable doing this around your birthday, do this around tax season. It's a great way to put yourself in the mindset of money management. Start associating April as the month where you also take care of yourself and your finances.

Take a Personal Finance Class at Home: Watch David Bach and Become an Automatic Millionaire

Money helps you Be.

Money helps you Do.

Money helps you Have.

Alright, so I just finished binge watching David Bach's class Start Late, Finish Rich on CreativeLive. I believe this class if for everyone. That's a lot to say. I have been a David Bach fan since I've read his books, The Automatic Millionaire and Go Green, Live Rich, seeing him talk and visually explain all of the concepts from his books is amazing. This is a class I would recommend binge watching with your partner. Instead of watching the next Netflix show, watch this instead. Sit down, takes notes and take action.
