What was your favorite subject in school? Were you a fan of math, science, language, or the arts? We all had a special subject that kept our attention and ignited our passions. Some students even go on to pursue a career in the field that they love.
But as wonderful as school was (and as important as a formal education is for a society to advance) there are only so many subjects that can be covered during the course of a school day. When you graduated from high school or college, you may have had knowledge about 18th century politicians and 16th century composers, but how much did you know about preparing a tax return or changing the fan belt on your car? You may have been able to explain how a strand of DNA copies itself every time a cell divides, but could you balance your checkbook?
Mandatory education helps a person to be well-rounded, but there just isn’t enough time to teach every basic life skill that a person will need. So once your mandatory education ends, your personal education is only beginning. The book Forever Cash explains that, often, students go out into the world to try and make money – one of the subjects that they have been taught nothing about – and often end up making some very foolish financial decisions.
A good public education is like playing financial defense – it is designed to make you fill a role in a system but is not designed not to create a financially independent life. So how can you start playing some offense? You need to work on the different aspects of your personal education, one of which should involve financial literacy. But instead of thinking that learning about finances is boring (like listening to a teacher drone on and on about a subject that you care nothing about) try to see it as your chance to learn exactly what you need to get ahead.
Learn how to deal with money; exactly what money is; how to make it; and how to invest it to create financial independence in your life.
There are three main ways to learn about finances:
- Extract lessons from your own experience
- Learn from other people’s mistakes
- Listen to someone who knows what they’re talking about
Forever Cash can help you to take advantage of all three of these learning methods. You will have the opportunity to see how countless people have followed both the traditional advice and the methods of the rich. You will see how it went for each group and what it should mean for you.
Reading the book Forever Cash is like becoming an apprentice for a successful investor who shares all of their financial secrets with you. What more could you ask for?
