Create a budget, save money, and achieve financial goals. This information is not taught in most schools, and I would like you, your family, and friends to benefit from money management principles. Avoid making costly mistakes. Earn big bucks, save, and hopefully, with careful planning, you can become financially independent and enjoy a relaxing retirement! Learn how to set up bank accounts (Chapter 2), earn income at work and make deposits (Chapter 3), establish a savings plan (Chapter 4), deposit funds into bank accounts (Chapter 5), develop a financial plan, or budget (Chapter 6), make a debit card transaction (Chapter 7), reconcile a bank statement (Chapter 8), and learn how to complete a simple online tax return (Chapter 9). In the audiobook, you will find additional resources: In addition to a glossary containing over 200 common financial terms, there is an appendix that contains links to additional financial learning resources.
According to Brett Nelson's recent article in Forbes, financial illiteracy is killing our kids. Our education system is the source of this problem. Our population needs to be financially literate in order to compete in the global economy in the future, and we are failing our kids. Three-quarters of high school seniors failed a financial literacy test given by Jump$tart Coalition in 2008, and only 5% earned better than a "C". Five percent! But there is hope and this audiobook is designed to provide parents of teenaged children recommendations.
I recommend that parents purchase this audiobook, and review it together with your children to ensure they understand everything that is critically important to start a life without financial worries. Share your experiences in financial matters, and help them learn how these fundamental principles can help them succeed in life, avoid financial stress, and achieve their life goals.
