Financial Literacy Part Two

When it comes to investing. Who do teaches the rules? Who makes the rules? What’s the motivation of the rule makers? TicTacToe the relatively simple game, with a simple strategy. When you originally were taught the game, you probably didn’t start winning until you figured out the strategy. Simple game, simple strategy once you know the rules. The lack of rules being taught in America today creates financial illiteracy that is obvious at all levels and within all professions, the exception those who specifically study finance. This is not an indictment on investors intellect, rather an indictment on an entire industry that doesn’t feel financial education is important. Kind of makes one feel like a mushroom, kept in the dark. In Part Two, Paul Nichols, the founder of Financial Abundance, expands on why he enjoys being the “Investor Coach”. Watch this latest vidcast and you’ll find out the answers to those a few more questions! Financial Abundance operates under the core belief that education leads to clarity and confidence resulting in peace of mind.
