It’s Catherine with Titan Impact Group and I’ve been asked is financial literacy important.
This is a subject I’m really, really passionate about. I’m clear that in school, the two things that doesn’t teach us is it doesn’t teach us relationship skills and it doesn’t teach us financial literacy, and doesn’t even teach us communication.
The three things that are absolutely fundamental inside of marriages working and a lot of relationships working. So I’m clear that financial literacy is important – absolutely!!
I unfortunately was born to a teenage mother, and growing up we were dirt poor and I had a really rough and horrible childhood. I believe a lot of that happened because of the lack of financial literacy. Had she had the financial literacy, it would have created different opportunities to be able to create a life that she actually loved and really was able to be everything that she wanted to be.
Due to the lack of financial literacy, it continued to perpetuate, I’m sure decades of illiteracy throughout the generations. So one of the things I’m very passionate about that is understanding that the school system is not going to teach us any of that. So it is up to us to go get ourselves self educated.
There’s more than enough books, courses, mentors, people out there to learn from around financial literacy. One of my favorite sayings is success leaves clues. And so one of the things I love is studying really successful people, and of all of the millionaires and billionaires that I know, one of the common threads that I love that every single one of them does, is they all study the book Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill.
It is a small book, but it is intense. If you do the work, like really do the work, not just “I know” (it doesn’t matter what you know, it only matters what you do). If you actually do the work, it absolutely matters and financial literacy will change your life for the rest of your life, I promise you.
So it’s not about the money. Money is like oxygen, the more you have, the easier it is to breathe and the more you can breathe and the more you have, the bigger the difference in the world you can make.
I believe we’re all here to make a huge impact in the world. I’m here to get all the adoptable children in the US foster care system adopted to loving families.
So with that, I am Catherine Bell, and we are the Sentinels of the American Dream. We leave every Person, Property and Community Better than we found them.
