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. For example I had to take anthropology, calculus, and astronomy to graduate with a business degree. But I never got to learn about investing, compound interest, or credit.
