Why You Should Care

About once a month or so I travel to speak to groups of people about money, something I love to do. Just before I step to the podium, I look out at the audience. I can almost hear what they're thinking: Great, she's going to talk about money. Why should we care? That question revs my engine and puts me into my zone. I hope you're asking the same question, right now. Here are four reasons:

Because money is important. Its impact is also emotional, spiritual, and personal, which can be tricky, especially the emotional part.

Because money impacts our lives. It determines where we live, what we drive, where the kids go to school. It's the means by which we pay our bills, protect our families, and prepare for the future. Wrong choices and bad decisions can turn an otherwise pleasant life into a miserable existence.

Because Americans are finding themselves more financially challenged as prices soar but paychecks remain stagnant. Recovery from the Great Recession is turning out to be slow and uncertain. Those sitting on the sidelines waiting to move ahead with their lives until everything gets back to “normal” may be in for a very long and disappointing season.

Because you may be called upon to handle a significant amount of money in the future. It might be an inheritance, a job promotion, or a sizable investment portfolio. Or it might be simply a second chance for getting things right. Will you be ready?
