Most Important Personal Finance Terms You Should Know

Not quite sure you’ve got a handle on basic personal finance terms? You’re not alone. Personal finance isn’t something most of us learn about in school. You pick up things as you go through life and usually learn by trial and error. As a result, it can happen that you run across a word in your financial life that you don’t know.

Personal finance is an important area of knowledge to understand, but it can also be confusing for those who are not professionally trained financial advisors. A basic understanding of personal finance terminology can empower you to make more informed and educated personal finance decisions.

Regardless of your age or earning power, it’s important to understand how common personal finance terms apply to your financial life.

It’s easy to get hung up on confusing terms when making a big financial decision. This practical glossary demystifies personal finance so that you can focus on what’s important - taking control of your money!

This practical glossary audiobook compiles a list of over 130 most common personal finance terms you’re likely to encounter. Every term is explained in detail, with clear and concise article style description and practical examples.

Understanding personal finance terminology, whether you have a dedicated financial planner or not, makes it easier to manage your money in a way that makes sense and works for you, and with no surprises due to lack of understanding.

Make Personal Finance Less of a Mystery

Not sure what a Roth IRA is? Uncertain about the Estate Tax? Want to learn more about compounding interest? Completely ignorant about anything financial? Then this is for you!

Understanding the terminology can allow you to make decisions more quickly and easily. With this knowledge, you’ll be empowered to take control of your financial present and future.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A Concepts to fully sink in!

Audio Book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Easy to understand and follow. I have a very basic knowledge regarding personal financing, but through this audible, I feel more CONFIDENT than ever! As I go through one lecture after another, all I could think of was how I wish I'd known about this when I was younger. Well, there's no better time to start than now! With this in mind, I have been busy sharing my new-found knowledge to my teenagers, and I am very EXCITED about theirs and our future. I will definitely repeat the course over and over again so that all concepts fully sink in! Thank you for helping with my learning journey! : )

Keeps my attention.

I found this audiobook great as an introduction to finances because I'm a total beginner in this field. A lot of terms I was barely familiar with were explained in much greater detail and with a back story which helped me better understand them. Herold and Bahl are really on their game and determined to become financially independent. They've just empowered to take control of your financial present and future. Many Thanks.

Great course on Personal Finance.

For me, as much as it was an eye opener it also reiterated how I should continue managing my own finances and sticking to a consistent plan is actually key to financial wellbeing.

Learned a lot, thanks guys!

Some stuff I already know but there are some topics that it covers that I hadn't heard of before. I liked the sections on what a Roth IRA is and investing-good insight into financial planning for your life. I would like an expansion on some of the topics but I understand this is an intro course. By the way this one a very reliable course.

It worth every penny.

Because of this excellent course I just made my monthly report about income and expenses. That make me aware of all of my debt and when I will be debt free. Although I decided to save more than usual like about 50% of my income (will be for paying debt for a year) I feel that I have control of my buying habit as well as i have more to spend. I recommend any one want to have freedom join the course it worth every penny.

Wealth of information in this Audible

This is a fantastic audiobook, the pace is right and it's very informative. The resources were especially useful. I live in the outside of usa now so not everything is relevant, but it was all still interesting and where some sections were not relevant to me, it prompted me to look for and research the equivalent in the other country as well. How and where do they start? One other suggestion, there is a wealth of information in this course. I'm sure most people will have taken notes. But it might be worthwhile if you could provide a checklist of things to do (action points) for each section. We could then use these checklists to put together our own personalised action plan. Finally, thank you Thomas and Bahl for making this audiobook a masterpiece. I shall be recommending it to all my friends

Great Duo

If you already love Thomas and Bahl than why not step it up and jump into their Masterclass?! Great thoughts that dive a little deeper and uses the guidance of other professionals. This is set up like a personal finance less of a Mystery. I am half way though and I'm enjoying it so far. It will helps to get the support you need to reach your goals. Thanks Thomas and Bahl!

Nice . Information is great

Quite comprehensive. Assumes historical values to seed forecasts so maybe an issue for startups. Principles still remain sound and a working example of Goal Seeking and sensitivity analysis was very helpful.

Proficient in basic

This course was a great match for me. I'm already proficient in basic personal finance terms and have a base understanding of modelling from my management consulting background. This introduced me to the principles, got straight to the point and didn't spare too much sophistication. Thanks for putting this together!
