Overall Thoughts

Educational efforts primarily focus on preparing young persons to succeed in a career and as a member of society.  Sometimes education overlooks the importance of helping young people also prepare to be good stewards of the rewards they will reap, such as the income they will earn during their career.


We were recently asked to visit with students wanting some guidance or tips on how to begin managing their own financial affairs.  We found ourselves organizing our thoughts into several fundamental topics:

  • The income I earn
  • The taxes I pay
  • The money I borrow
  • The money I invest

This web site offers some thoughts on each of these topics.


Be certain to consult appropriate professionals as you address these topics, such as an attorney, accountant, insurance agent, financial adviser, or real estate agent.
