The Personal Finance Lesson Your School Forgot To Teach You


On November 8th, 2016, America was diagnosed with anxiety, and uncertainty about the future has taken us hostage.

We may be entering an unprecedented time in our history, but if we can learn to respect personal security, there should be nothing to fear. Amidst the confusion of where we may be headed, we still know two things for certain: how much money we make, and how much money we spend.

Moving forward, it is imperative that our schools start teaching Personal Finance.

Unfortunately, I learned money management the hard way. At 19, I was completely broke, cut off financially, and facing a mountain of bills to pay — all before I could legally drink. My encounter with the reality of homelessness scared me straight, but it took dedication to Personal Finance to right my wrongs.

Failure is the best teacher, and I would rather have my faults and insecurities published than watch anyone else ride the slippery slope to rock bottom. In THE PERSONAL FINANCE LESSON YOUR SCHOOL FORGOT TO TEACH YOU, you will finally learn how to be frugal, build a budget, save properly, and avoid society’s debt traps.

You may be doubtful that a frat boy from Arizona State knows enough about personal finance to lend a helping hand, but my mistakes can help you avoid the same pitfalls I fell into with money. You should get upset at how simple personal finance actually is. You should be ignited with passion to prove everyone else wrong, and triumph against those who doubt your potential.

It only takes an elementary level of math to start investing in your future. The only other pre-requisites to this course are an unquenchable thirst to improve upon yourself, and the balls to stand up for what you believe in.
