Personal Finance Basics for Beginners


Want to organize your money and not sure where to start? This course is for you.


A note on why personal finance management is important:

  1. You learn how to save well. Being disciplined is getting into the habit of saving consistently.
  2. Budgeting makes you aware of your finances – how much is coming in and going out – which allows you to have more control.
  3. There is a more positive association with money. Those that can’t manage money well likely have a negative perception of money is taught to others around. Understanding the basic principles automatically puts you on a better financial path which, in turn, will allow you to see money in a neutral or good light.
  4. It promotes financial security and stability. Through knowledge, you will make wiser financial decisions that put you on a smooth path to success.

Start building a better financial future by learning the basics included in these lectures:

  • Spending & budgeting
  • Managing (and lowering) taxes
  • Credit cards (and how to increase your score)
  • Investment strategies
  • Other relevant information to help manage your money


This course is intended to help you get control of finances (rather than the other way around). This simple knowledge will help the average person save (and earn) more money, perhaps prepare to start a business, or just be slightly ahead of the curve so that there are less worries about the financial future.
