Do you think you would have benefited from taking a personal finance class?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on September 19, 2007
“Yes, in college or even high school. The sooner you get to know those things, the better. You definitely need to know them before you get your first real job.”
“Yeah. I don’t think it could ever hurt. You’re always going to be dealing with money, no matter what you do. You always need to know where all your finances meet up and what’s getting lost in between the cracks.”
“Absolutely, because I’m not a very good money manager. Thank God I have a husband who is. I think it’s definitely a skill students need to have.”
“Actually I already took one. I’m sure I didn’t learn everything, but it certainly got me into thinking about what I need to be doing with my money in the future.”
