The world seems to be talking about it these days; financial literacy and education. In the news, online, and from word of mouth, it is obvious that people believe strongly in educating our teens in the area of money. Many people may agree, but many also believe they themselves do not need financial education. Young adults want their children to learn financial literacy but believe they are already fully educated on the topic themselves. Unfortunately, for many of us this is not true, and many more of us then just teens in high school need financial education.
Just because you are able to support yourself now does not mean you will be able to in ten years. The most important part of financial education is learning to plan for the future. We all need to know the right ways to save and invest so many years from now we will still have the money needed to live.
The point is, don’t say, “Not me.” when it comes to the topic of who needs financial education. Every citizen of America could use further education to better the shape of our economy. The more we learn the more we can grow and hold a successful future.
