You may not have taken finance classes in school. In most schools, they are optional — and some schools do not even offer them at all. That does not mean, however, that it is too late for you to learn about finance. In fact, we highly recommend doing so, as learning about money and finance is the best way to ensure you make wise financial decisions throughout your life. Don't worry, though. We don't give out grades on this blog. If we did, we would give all of our readers an "A" just for showing up and putting in the effort.
