Why don't more people pay attention to their finances? Is it because people think they will work forever regardless? Is it because some people saw the 2008 Housing/Stock Market crash & they don't trust the system? ...... OR is it that people simply don't understand their options to save, invest & plan their financial future? It could be a combination or could be simply the last option.
This information isn't taught in school (so glad I got to take biz calc and anthropology, so much more useful in the real world)
They make it hard for "normal" people to understand the basics so they make money....watch Inside Job if you don't believe me
Regardless ANYONE can create their path to wealth with a little research, patience & understanding that it is a lifelong journey...don't expect to understand it instantly. Please see the FINANCIAL GLOSSARY for common terms & the links below for more information on the building blocks of a strong financial future: Emergency Fund, 401K & IRA below.
