Be A Savvy Financial Consumer

by Cesar Garcia on June 11, 2010

The answer lies in the old saying that goes, “It’s not who you know, it’s what you know.” Yes, I changed the words around. The What in front of the Who. Say what?

Men Shaking Hands For many generations, the business world, which includes Wall Street, has been networking its corporate elite and others in order to drive sales and build a successful business. Networking is synonymous with a successful business. All the businessmen and businesswomen at the corporate level, including business and investment bankers achieve success through networking. Of course, in order to close a deal, they need to have the knowledge, expertise and the right information to complete that business transaction and call it a slam dunk of a deal.

Yes, it’s not required. It is easy to blame banks, business or governments for our current economic condition but the fact is that the education of individuals is what needs to be addressed. Some argue that a better way to teach children about money is in the home, which may have its qualities but may create something of a cyclone out of control: when parents are themselves, financially challenged. What’s the government’s role in teaching financial education? From my experience in researching financial education and the resources that can help individuals and families better prepare themselves to make that slam dunk of a deal, the government and some private businesses are going to bat for you.

Throughout my financial quest in search of answers to everyday personal finance questions, I came to realize that there is way too much information out there! Information overload! The World Wide Web is amassed with hundreds of sites devoted to help...
