FINANCIAL LITERACY

Definition

Financial literacy is the ability to understand and apply various financial skills, including budgeting, investing, and other financial management strategies.

Why It's Important

My, oh, my!  Financial literacy is critical to master as it affects everything in your life, from well-being and relationships to opportunities that are afforded to you.  A financially literate person has a much better chance of being "successful" with money.  This is why I built this whole platform.  My personal goal is to see as many people as possible to become financially literate.  It is imperative!  

I joke and say people treat you differently when you know about money on social media, BUT it is true!  I have had salespeople and lenders tell me this.  So, I took that information and decided to help so YOU won't be taken advantage of. 

Want to see how financially literate you are?  I made a quiz to test your skills.  You can check it...

NEW YEAR, NEW YOU? HOW BUDGETING CAN HELP!

It's New Year's Eve!  This marks the occasion when everyone decides on their New Year's resolutions.  According to statisticbrain.com, the top resolution is to "lose weight/eat healthy" followed by "life/self-improvements" as number two.  These are great but I want to focus on the third most popular resolution which is "better financial decisions".  I assume you are here because this is where you want to improve.  What if I told you that by focusing on this one goal you can positively impact the other two top resolutions?  It has been proven that money issues cause stress and stress causes health issues.  That knocks out number 2!  But, how is "better financial decisions" linked to losing weight and healthier eating?  Allow me to explain!  One of the cornerstones of being wealthy is budgeting.  Most of the time eating unhealthy (fast food/junk food) is something that can be cut from your budget or minimized.  Therefore,...

6 TIPS TO AN (UN)STRESSFUL HOLIDAY SEASON

'Tis the season of spending!  The National Retail Federation expects retail sales during November and December to be about $682 billion!  (I think we are in the wrong business)  They expect each consumer to spend an average of $967.13.  This is massive spending!  Most Americans get into a ton of debt during this time and spend the better part of the new year trying to pay it down.  Don't let this happen to you!  In this article, I'll offer six of my top tips to ensure you are prepared for next year and keep your spending in check.
 
Tip #1 - The Holiday Season Comes Every Year
Well, duh, Tiffany!  It may seem like I am stating the obvious but every year people wait until the last minute to plan for it.  This is a disaster waiting to happen!  Not planning throughout the year puts you in a position where you have to scrape together the last few paychecks before the holiday to do all of your shopping.  Talk about stressful!...
