It’s April, which means it’s Financial Literacy Month—and not a moment too soon. Millions of Americans have filed for unemployment, the economy is headed for a recession (or could already be in one), and stimulus payments began this week. In short, financial literacy is more important than ever.
Financial literacy simply means having the knowledge and skills to make smart money decisions. Those skills include everything from maintaining a monthly budget to applying for a mortgage to developing an investment portfolio. Basic financial literacy is critical to building wealth and achieving stability in your life. And it’s more important than ever as we navigate the new normal of life in a pandemic.
That’s why Napkin Finance has decided to make all of our courses available to readers—completely free—until the end of April. We want you to have the tools and resources you need to make the right financial choices now, and well after the pandemic ends.
Financial literacy helps you develop a budget, build your emergency savings, and plan for future expenses, both expected and unexpected.
