Two months ago was April but did you know it was also financial literacy month?
More and more Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. Even though college attendance rates are high and students seem to be doing better and better.
Well that’s just the thing.
No one said financial literacy was part of the mandatory education.
When I think it should be.
Not everyone is fortunate enough to learn to be financially savvy from their parents.
Or their friends.
And meanwhile you have ALL of these financial institutions stating that you should invest early, save early and plan early.
Which is true and I hope no one is questioning that.
If you start early, time makes up for the rest.
According to this lovely infographic, 76% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.
While only 33% of parents talk to their kids about money.
No wonder advertisers are always targeting the younger individuals.
They are more likely to spend because they don’t know much about money.
And how much EFFORT it takes to earn it.
But I get it.
It wasn’t on the list of priorities.
Not when you’re juggling high school coursework, applying for college and then eventually juggling college coursework as well.
Then before you know it.
You graduate and get a job.
Which is great an all but who really wants to continue working the 9-5 grind?
Empowering yourself with financial literacy is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
