When I mention financial literacy to most people, they are often unfamiliar with the term. There are lots of fancy definitions as to what financially literacy means, but to me, it is being able to use your money confidently in the real world. Sadly, this is something many people struggle to do. Everyone wants money, but few use it confidently or in a way that will help them achieve the life they want for themselves.
This is one of the many reasons why I chose to become a financial advisor. I wanted to help people see money as a gift as I was taught to do and to use it to create joy in their lives and others, regardless of their circumstances. In order to do this, you have to get Financially Real. Sometimes that means confronting hard truths, like debt, emotional spending and more, but it is worth the effort.
I asked Tanya create an infographic outlining the basic steps on how to get Financially Real so you can begin the process of reclaiming your financial power. Even just starting will change how you handle your money and ultimately help you find your money happiness.
