Top 25 Personal Finance Myths
Someone once said that if you were to make a list of your 10 closest friends and acquaintances and order your earnings and theirs from smallest to greatest, you'd probably find yourself somewhere near the middle. All that this means is that we are subtly influenced by our friends, even when we're not aware of it, especially in matters of money. Being somewhere in the middle is probably more comfortable for the average person. If you are that rare person at the high end of the list, then you probably don't need to read this article. If you are not, then find out what's holding you back. There are hundreds of ... market research, surveys and trends
5 myths of personal finance (plus: stupid advice) | I Will Teach ...
– And you can just see that’s true by asking a few questions: Are you happy with your finances? How much do you spend on eating out and loans? What’s your system for getting ahead? What are your goals? – Just knowing a fact doesn’t make it implementable. As we say in persuasion, “informational influence is one of the least persuasive methods available” – Make it tactical: How do you get the right accounts? Dominate your credit card? Automate your money? Pick the right investments? Handle money and relationships? [21:33] — Myth #2: Personal finance is about more will power ... market research, surveys and trends


10 myths about investing and finances that trip up people ...
Myths, the late Joseph Campbell taught us, are fundamental truths that help people carve order out of chaos. But in personal finance, myths are often fundamentally false.

And for each myth, we reveal the reality and suggest a better path to financial security.

There’s a small, but growing movement to try and ‘package’ personal finance advice into various ‘systems’ …. heck, I am [still] working on my own Grand Unified Theory of Personal Finance … Hint: it will come with all sorts of strings attached … for example, take these Tips on Practicing Smart Personal Finance from Think Your Way To Wealth [AJC: I'll leave you to read the post, which has some great suggestions ]. But, if I were to write some of my own tips on ‘practicing smart personal finance’, it would surely begin with the end: know your objective. Then it would ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Education Quandary: My son says that he can take a GCSE in personal finance ...
One of the great debates in education has always been whether the priority is to teach children stuff (the kings and queens of England, the rules of algebra) or skills (how to amass, sort, assess information and draw conclusions from it). Within that debate is another about whether the material we teach them should be pure (the Greek myths, the periodic table) or applied (how to stay healthy, how to run a business). These divides are, of course, arbitrary as all knowledge is ultimately indivisible. But they arouse great passions. So those who believe that education should elevate young minds with Latin verbs ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Personal Finance Myths
No, no, no, that is the wrong attitude. So many people seem to think it is beneficial to have a huge mortgage so they can have a huge "tax savings". I will lay it on the line. Having to pay interest by itself is BAD! You are being forced to pay more than something is worth because you do not have the cash to buy it yourself. However, with mortgage loans you get to write off the interest as a tax deduction. This is great but it really is not a "savings", it is really a "discount". You are still paying a bucket load of money to borrow for your home, but you are getting a percentage of it back as a ...

I feel most frustrated by how much coaching is stigmatized in our culture. I used to believe that the only reason to having a coach would mean that something was "wrong" with me. What I've discovered is that coaching is about learning new tools and skills to approach the world that I didn't learn growing up-- it's just like my math teacher taught me different (and faster) techniques for approaching calculus. posted 2 months ago ★ The Leading trade show booth traffic builder/lead generator in the world ★ GREEN ★100% recycled w see all my answers Best Answers in: Using LinkedIn ...
