Newsletter Series On Managing Money For Beginners

It’s no secret that financial literacy in the U.S. is lacking. Just 23 states require high school students to take a personal finance course to graduate, according to 2022 data. That same year, nearly 40% of Americans surveyed said they didn’t have anyone trusted to turn to for financial guidance.

So for many Americans, the idea of saving for retirement or opening an investment account can feel like a far-off concept, solely because they’ve never been offered the tools to start planning for their financial future.

With Personal Finance 101, our goal is to help fill your toolbox.

With this free, weeklong newsletter course, we’ll break down the basics of budgeting, debt management and more, offering up expert tips and strategies to get you on the right path toward financial success.

Whether you’re already familiar with some money management concepts or have been dragging your feet in tackling your financial situation, Personal Finance 101 will provide some context and clarity—as well as motivation—on what steps you can take with your money.

Learn The Financial Basics

We’ll hit the ground running with an in-depth dive into the world of budgeting. There’s a tangled web of budgeting strategies and apps to sort through, and we’ll aim to simplify things to empower you to make the best decision on where to start. Being able to clearly visualize your money and where it’s being spent is the best way to prepare for your future financial goals.

We’ll then wade into the turbulent waters of debt—including credit cards, high-interest loans and more. If you’re struggling to pay down your own debt, we’ve got some tactics to consider.

Then, we’ll pull the curtain back on some common myths about side hustles that are often promoted to young people on social media. And finally, we’ll encourage you to start thinking about retirement and investing, offering advice on the different accounts that are available to you right now.

It might sound like a lot to take in, but don’t worry. We’ll take things day-by-day. The important thing is that you’re taking the first step to investing in a brighter financial future. Sign up for free here.
