Basics of Financial Literacy

I’m writing a piece on the basics of financial literacy and why it’s so important: -What is the first area someone should start with if they don’t know how to manage their money? What makes someone financially literate? -Why is it so important to become financially literate? What are the benefits of financial literacy? -What are some of the best resources to use to grow in financial literacy? -What’s the best way to juggle different financial
responsibilities and still retain focus on each area? Requirements: Preferably someone from the financial services sector, or financial advisor. If you’re from a PR firm, please have the quotes sent directly and not an offer to connect or have a call. Please send responses in quotable sentences as that would be most helpful. NO product/promotional pitches please.
