Financial Friday Round-Up: July 20 – July 24
Welcome to our latest Financial Friday Round-Up, where we scour the web for the best things for you to read, watch, or listen to regarding finance every week. Below you will find a primer on the finances of homeschooling, a call to increase financial education in America, a guide to buying the perfect used car and more.
As this year continues to shake up how we approach education and schooling, Worth argues that now is the perfect time to implement financial education into the curricula of the future. Too long has it been common to hear “I wish I learned that in school” from adults talking about financial concepts as simple as mortgages and budgeting. With change on the horizon, there is no better moment to incorporate these lessons into our schools so the next generation can reap the benefits of a sound financial education.
Again on the subject of returning to school, this piece from Kiplinger aims to tell you everything you need to know if you are considering a pivot to homeschooling in the near future. There are many financial factors that can be overlooked in those early stages of consideration, so read here for more information on tax consequences, expenses and how to save.
The Wall Street Journal held a Race and Progress at Work forum on Wednesday urging black entrepreneurs to take advantage of the heightened attention from consumers by kick starting their businesses as soon as possible. “There has not been a better time to become an entrepreneur,” according to Jewel Burks Solomon as quoted in the piece, echoing the sentiment of our most recent blog post as well.
Earlier this month, we wrote a piece on how to reduce the hidden costs of buying a car, and anyone looking for further reading should check out this guide from Money Ning for additional information about how to save on a used car in particular.
