Financial Literacy Is For Everyone

Financial Literacy is for everyone!

I was just browsing through my photos history on Facebook.  

Pausing at each one to think back on the memory of the night or day it was taken.  Seeing the people I was with; old friends who I haven’t spoken to in years, some I talked to just yesterday.  Laughing at how young we were – how stupid in some cases.  I also wished I had learned to smile better for photos at a much younger age.
