You want to become a financial expert, but you don’t know where to start?
Don’t worry, a lot of information is at your fingertips, and it’s easy to get started.
Read up on money matters. Libraries, bookstores, and websites can lead you to thousands of books on any money matter you can think of. The Richest Man in Babylon is a good one to start with because it is simple.
2. Take a finance course. Universities offer free online courses on a wide range of financial topics.
Hit the books again. You can learn more by subscribing to publications like The Wall Street Journal or Barron’s, talking to people who work in financial services, or taking courses at the CFA Institute.
4. Talk to people who work in the financial services industry. Talk to a professional financial advisor, a banker, an accountant, and a lawyer. Then listen to what they have to say and learn from it.
