Fin Lit: Budgeting
Money is an already touchy subject matter that sparks numerous first impressions when brought into the conversation. I believe that overcoming first impression notions is essential to cultivating meaningful conversation around building your wealth on your terms.
Depending on background and upbringing, wealth will mean different things to different people. To some, it may mean having material things such as fancy clothing, an aesthetically pleasing car, and a plethora of Instagram pictures to back it up. This is the majority of society's perspective. I'm just simply painting a picture.
My recommendations are to download one of these three apps: NerdWallet, Mint, or Trim, a plug-in on Facebook Messenger. These apps will automate a lot of the budgeting traditionally used like excel sheets and have organized pie charts based off of spending per month.
Fin Lit: Investments
Wondering how to become an investor? No problem, I wondered how two years ago. An easy and simple way catered for millennials is to know what you are getting into when you buy any form of security albeit a stock, bond, ETF, mutual fund, IRA, etc. My recommendation is to purchase a copy of The Intelligent Investor or my version of the book in Mindnode form.
