If you’re staying at home to help stop the spread of Coronavirus, or Covid-19, chances are you’ve already filled your time with movies and games. Why not use this time to learn about money? 

You can earn a financial education: you just need the desire and the tools. In this article, we’re going to break down 3 ways to do just that. But first, let’s look at why you should have a financial education in the first place. 

Why Should You Have a Financial Education?

The truth is that schools and universities didn’t teach you about money. The following topics were left out of the curriculum: 

  • how to invest your money 
  • how to build your credit score 
  • how to take advantage of tax write-offs and save money on your taxes
  • how to become an entrepreneur 
  • how to begin planning for an early retirement

So, you’re left with learning how to navigate the intricacies of money on your own. 

This can lead to:

  • creating significant debt with credit cards
  • drastically overpaying for a home
  • losing money in your savings account to inflation
  • Making poor investing decisions
  • delaying your retirement — or worse — not being able to retire at all 
  • not living the life you deserve

Having a financial education isn’t about having more money; it’s about having true wealth.

Here at WealthFit, we define wealth as "the abundance of time, money and influence." 

Let’s dive deeper into that definition.

Time

An abundance of time is being able to do what you want to do when you want to. 

Money

An abundance of money isn’t about having a lot of money in your bank account; instead, it’s having financial security, which means having enough money for your needs to be met, even in the event of an emergency, such as the one we’re seeing right now with the impacts of Coronavirus. 

Influence

An abundance of influence is having the ability to financially help or bless those who matter to you, including your friends, family or people in need. 

Are you sold on the importance of financial education, and the importance of being truly wealthy — by our definition? Great!

Next, we’ll look at how you can get a financial education right now — for free.
