Conversations with Leslie: Financial Literacy

Happy Financial Literacy Month! In case you didn’t know every April (since 2004) has been declared National Financial Literacy Month in the United States. In honor of this month I wanted to talk a little bit about the importance of financial literacy. Financial literacy is especially important for the youth of our nations, if finances are not taught early, they may not be able to understand finances when they grow up and become independent. Yet it is important to continue these practices throughout your lifetime. Not only should you be teaching your children about finances, you should be setting an example on how to handle finances, budgeting and money.

So to celebrate financial literacy try practicing some good financial habits today! Balance your check book, check your credit report, create and follow a budget, and start taking steps to get out (and stay out) of debt! Try teaching your children some good money management skills too! Check out my blog post “Break the cycle: Teach Your Children Money Management at an Early Age” for some tips on how to instill good financial habits in your children, grandchildren, nieces/nephews or any other youngsters! Also, April 24th is National Teach Children to Save Day, so make sure to mark your calendar and think of a special way to spend the holiday with your younger family and friends!

What People Have to Say

I just wanted to thank your entire staff at The Law Offices of Leslie H. Tayne, for helping me get out of debt. If it wasn’t for your firm, I would have never been able to resolve my $13k worth of debt in less than 3 years. Your staff did a great job, I was finally able to buy myself a brand new car without using a cosigner. I can’t tell you again how happy I am. I would recommend your services to anyone.

I sleep like a baby at night now because of the work that you and your office have done. Rest assured that I will refer anyone I know to your office with conditions that are similarly circumstanced.
