Do you want to make a difference? Do you want to know the awesome feeling of helping to change a life? Do you want to see hope restored to eyes that had no hope? Help someone with their finances!
I don’t mean that you should give them a bunch of money. I don’t mean that you should give them any money. I mean help them with their finances! Sit down with them and help them put together their first ever zero-based budget. Help them understand what a mutual fund is and how to invest. Teach them the concept of dollar-cost averaging or compound interest. Show them that a little bit saved every month can equal a lot in just a few years. It does not take a sophisticated degree or certification to help someone with their finances. It takes caring and understanding!
There is an amazing thing that happens when you teach a person to better manage their finances – you gain a friend. You truly helped them make a tangible, real change in their financial future.
I would not have learned sound financial management techniques without being taught by friends and family. This is a case where “paying it forward” makes a HUGE difference for the future! It made a huge difference for my family’s financial future!
Go make it happen! You can do it!
