Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you don't have enough money? Do you ever feel that money is slipping through your fingers as quickly as a bar of soap? Does it make you feel more comfortable to bury your head in the sand rather than deal with your expenses or go through your bank statements? If this describes you, you are not alone in feeling this way. Being financially literate is not something that most of us take for granted. These notes are intended to assist you in gaining control over your finances by providing you with the information and skills you need to make educated financial decisions in the future. So, what are you holding out for now? It is past time to begin studying, to begin saving, and to look forward to a more peaceful and secure future.
Wouldn't it be great if you could put in your notice at your job and retire to an idyllic lifestyle surrounded by abundance? You're not the only one who feels this way. However, for many of us, those aspirations will stay just that: aspirations. For author Robert T. Kiyosaki, this is not the case. In the end, he was able to transform his dreams into the wealth and freedom he now enjoys. His own father had been an overworked government employee who had been indebted and in financial disaster as a result of his actions. After seeing this happen to his father, Kiyosaki swore that he would never allow it to happen to him in his own life. As a result, he learned to generate money no matter where he was.
