Growing up, there were three things you didn't bring up at the dinner table or with friends ...
Our financial problems will not be solved over night; financial instability is something we suffer with as a country. Whether you learn how to handle your finances in school or by watching your parents, there are a lot of things that get left out. We shouldn’t rely on the lottery or a get rich quick scheme to keep a roof over our heads in the event of a rainy day. It's time we start talking to each other about what we are doing financially. What's working and what we need to change.
The only way to set yourself up for success in the future is to learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others. Whether you ask someone you know or take a class on personal finance, it could only help you out in the end. Talk to your friends, family members, and co-workers. Have an open dialogue with your children. Today is the day we stop hiding behind financial insecurity and start taking our lives into our own hands.
