Experts agree in unison that it is better that the earlier you start learning about your personal finances, the more likely you are to live a healthy, happy and secure life. In fact a recent article in Forbes published a survey that says that 63% of respondents think personal finance education should be taught in schools as it enables students’ independence.
But learning about finances and managing our money continues to be a challenge for most of us. It’s common to spend your first hard-earned paycheck on getting the latest gadget or outfit instead of starting a savings plan.
In July on The Level Up! Podcast, we help you start thinking about your money so that you can progress on your own terms. Our hosts Jenn and Firas review a new book entitled Money Quest: A New Perspective on Spending, Saving, and Investing.
Listen now to hear highlights from the book, and how it can help you take your first steps up the money mountain today
New and exciting
Something new and exciting – as Firas described it, the book is not the usual finance learning material limited to words on a page. It is uniquely crafted with a FREE application you can download on your mobile phones so you’ll be able to experience it in video, too.
It will definitely excite Gen Z’s and millennials as this book also uses augmented reality (AR) experience. What’s even more thrilling is that you can scan images and it will engage the user with challenges – whether it’s a quiz, or a video that you can watch.
