What did your parents teach you about money?
Everyone should examine what lessons they were taught about money growing up.
My parents taught me to work hard and save money. But I never learned how to grow money money. My dad never invested anything in the stock market and my mother only talked about the stock market when it went down.
I started my investment portfolio at $0. I taught myself how to successfully invest. But I still have to be watchful, because I can find myself wanting to hoard money fearful of the future.
You have to examine the past or it might come back to haunt you and cause you to make choices that are not in your best interest.
Seek out your own knowledge about money, because schools are not going to teach you and most of the time parents are still learning about money as well.
