Hi, I'm financeforteen's writer. I'm a high school junior out to simplify personal finance and explain how teenagers can get a head start on their financial future.
Personal finance is a crucial element of life, which, when understood properly, provides a number of benefits, from stability, to growth and security. Despite this, it's not included in most schools and is often considered too taboo to discuss at home, leaving teens financially overwhelmed once they leave home.
My goal is to help teenagers understand the ins and outs of personal finance so they have a solid basis for money management once they become independent.
