Financial Literacy Pt. 1

Hello readers!

I know it’s late, but the chaos seems to die down around this time and my flow state is currently at its peak and I want to Share something with you all.

Since the summer I’ve dedicated my life to money. Not so much earning, well yes I want to make my money bend and curl in stacks, but I more so made a dedication to learning how much works.

Financial literacy is the ability to understand how money works in the world: how someone manages to earn or make it, how that person manages it, how he/she invests it (turn it into more) and how that person donates it to help others.

Everything has a system and the most mysterious and hidden (not really but you get what I’m trying to say) is money. Not necessarily how to make it, but how to KEEP IT!


As I increase my financial literacy I want to help you increase yours too. Because we never learned about investing, money management, or how to apply those two factors towards benefiting from our taxes in school, naturally – due to ignorance, we’re in debt.

I just found out that college debt is the worst debt to accumulate. I wish somebody would’ve told me that before I took out nearly 45-50 thousand dollars for school – don’t ask. All in the honor of a degree. Ha! smh Dooped.

To kick off this financial literacy talk, since we’re on education, I want to first let you know about EdX and coursera where you can take free online courses from top universities like Harvard, Columbia  & more.

“The more you learn, the more you earn.”-Tai Lopez

I’m taking a Spanish course, AP Physics I, Social Psychology, Philosophy I, and more. They also give you an option to receive a certificate for only $50. There are top PhD professors and specialists taking courses from these two outlets.


DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a financial adviser, nor stock broker. Do your own research, as I do my own. Don’t take my word for it. I’m only giving you crumbs to nibble on. PLEASE, PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH! I also welcome the comments of experienced financial and investment gurus. I want to learn as much as I can, and I’m sure my readers do too.

***Financial Literacy Tip:

As stated by The Black Hedge Fund Group: This week 234 U.S. corporations will be issuing dividend checks – I’m sure there’s more internationally.

Dividends checks= Passive and residual income–making your money work for you.

Google dividend producing stocks and research your options to opening a brokerage account (which are taxable as opposed to an IRA/401(k) – tax differed).

Allan Greenspan said, “The number one problem in today’s generation and economy is the lack of financial literacy.”

Well…I got you covered!
