A solid understanding of the basics of personal finance can only come through rigorous self-education. There is no shortcut. There are, however, excellent resources — both in print and on the internet (see below) — which can guide you with useful information on this journey. But the real learning happens when you analyze and apply this information to your personal situation. That’s the beauty of personal finance — each person’s situation and needs are different.
I developed my understanding by diligently and faithfully reading these resources:
- Outlook Money — a fortnightly print magazine
- Money Today — a fortnightly print magazine
- The Simple Dollar — perhaps the best blog on personal finance
There’s of course this blog too! That’s why you’re reading it right?
Awareness Fridays is my new initiative to spread awareness on topics relevant to personal finance — every Friday. I urge you to take some time off and absorb this information — it’s pretty useful. And, as always, do spread the word if you find this useful.
