Talking Points from Harry Abramhamsen on
How Graduates Can Save Money During this Challenging Times
:

Students are finally graduating and are now turning a new page in their chapter in life. Understanding various money strategies can significantly impact their financial success in the real world. It is equally important to start to save money to build up short-term liquidity. All too often people will throw all the money they have at their debt ignoring building short liquidity. The old saying that “cash is king” really applies here. Start a monthly saving habit and stick to it. Do not worry about a rate of return, because it is a short-term strategy.  This money may be needed for an emergency or to purchase a new home or condo. One of the early traps is “investing” into a risky investment so the money can grow—to potentially lose money to market volatility.

What Chris Janeway can say in an interview about
Financial Literacy:

* Financial Literacy Gaps at Home & School. There’s a combination of multiple issues in the marketplace for financial literacy. First and foremost, most adults aren’t taught any form of financial literacy through either their schools or their parents at home when they were younger. As we get older it becomes harder and harder to not only understand and admit our own lack of knowledge, but we also struggle to know where to find reputable information. Along with that, we run into an issue of competing priorities. As we age we’re in the midst of our careers, raising families, and all of the busyness that life can bring. Taking the extra time to increase our financial knowledge often goes to the bottom of the pile.
