Why Everyone Needs a Good Financial Education

Think back to your school years. Were you ever taught about budgeting, mortgages, or investing?
Probably not. Personal finance education is more than just how to use your money. It’s about how to put it to work for you, and achieve financial independence through making smart decisions. So what are the smart decisions to make, and which ones should you walk away from? These questions are answered in-depth in the I Am Net Worthy course, which include:
Learning through trial and error can set your progress back by decades. With the resources of our online personal finance course at your fingertips, you’ll get the guidance you need to become financially independent faster.
Whether you are just starting your adult life, or you’ve already been an independent adult for some years, you must have noticed that the financial aspect of life is difficult. The knowledge of how to create a growing net worth via saving, investing and smart financial decisions overall, is critical to your financial success. If you also manage to earn more, taking a personal finance course is even more critical. Knowing how to use your hard-earned cash well will help you avoid spending it in ways that set you back, and create more commitment than freedom.

Top 2 Financial Misconceptions Common among the Younger Generations

Mistake #1: Comparing Ourselves to Older Generations

Today’s younger generations are starting out on uneven footing, often coming out of college with large student loan debt burdens. This puts millennials and Gen Zers in the negative before we’ve even had a chance to find a job! It’s no wonder we’re feeling the financial restraints and struggles more than our parents or grandparents did. As the younger generations, we also have an immense variety of choices in life – and we need to educate ourselves in order to make choices that help us live freely, instead of helping us slave away.

Mistake #2: "I Have Years to Get My Finances Under Control"

It’s so tempting to go out and spend today what you made yesterday. Creating a future of financial independence starts today. The sooner you make the decision to be smart with your money, to put it to work for you, the sooner you’ll reap the rewards. You’ll even feel some rewards right away — focus, control of your expenses, a new outlook on what your job is for, the calming thought of a secure future. Other rewards will come in years and be that much sweeter.
