Your inbox is bursting with sales and coupons from companies, tempting you to spend your hard earned cash. You’ve got Amazon up your butt, bombarding you with ‘deals of the season.’
But you’ve worked for this spending money all year long, and you want to give gifts that will mean enough to your friends and family that they actually use it, not tuck it in the back of the closest until they inevitably Marie Kondo it out of their lives.
The gift of financial education cannot be Marie Kondo-ed. It cannot be regifted. It cannot gather dust atop a shelf in the guest bathroom.
Financial education can be used. It can be implemented. It can be handed down from generation to generation, a treasured family heirloom that in fact helps your family become richer over time.
But where can you find said financial education? Who can you trust to guide you through the red light district of investing, budgeting or debt pay off?
