Is it just coincidence that most Americans can’t afford an unexpected bill of more than $400?
If you are like most people, your family never talked about money. Your dad never explained your different retirement options on that fishing trip. And your mom never answered your questions about loans and credit and the way home from a soccer game.
To change the way we treat money we need to first understand how it works. No one is going to do it for us. It is our responsibility to learn the basics and teach it to our kids. Just knowing these things can lead us all to a more prosperous life.
This book simplifies money issues ranging from finding a first job and opening a bank account to buying a home and planning for retirement. Stories and examples bring to life otherwise boring concepts. This is a great resource for everyone; from parents wanting to teach their kids about personal finance to young adults that are just beginning to realize how much the world revolves around money.
