Americans spend about two minutes daily on money matters and over two hours on social media. A new book helps consumers improve their financial literacy.
VERO BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Good money habits drive financial success and wellness. But survey after survey reports that Americans of all ages have poor money skills and low levels of personal finance knowledge along with high levels of money related anxiety. They lack formal education and training in money matters. At the same time consumers are using their limited time to consult Tik-Tok, YouTube and other social media outlets for money questions and knowledge. These households have also just experienced a once in a century pandemic that has reset how they value and approach money.
Now is the perfect time for time starved individuals to improve their money skills and knowledge. They need to make learning about personal financial matters a higher priority. A new book from personal finance thought leader and published author Harry N. Stout is now available to help do just that. Good Money Habits in 17 Minutes Per Day or the “Little Green Money Book” provides the structure and framework to accomplish this.
Stout has taken his over 30 years of experience in personal finance and created a simplified book to aid readers in their quest for money knowledge. He asks readers to dedicate two hours per week or 17 minutes per day to money matters. Given that most people spend over two and one-half hours using social media this is quite achievable.
The book simplifies the complex world of personal finance and distills it into an easy-to-understand discussion of what money habits and knowledge are needed to achieve basic financial security. The book presents the actions and resources readers can take to rapidly improve their financial situation.
