Personal Financial Literacy
Personal Financial Literacy is a road map of the perilous highways and bi-ways of the personal finance world. Though the landscape has changed, success in navigating still remains an achievable goal. A person who attains financial freedom scales that summit by making sound choices, staying true to themselves, living within or even below their means, paying themselves first, and remaining devoted to a solid set of priorities. These principles have always been true; it’s just the world we apply them to has changed.
