Episode 9: Learning the Lingo
The more you know about finance, the better you can manage your money.Kathy Longo, CFP®, CAP®, CDFA®
For this week’s challenge, I’m going to encourage you to wade through something that many people avoid, but which is necessary if you really want to take charge of your money – financial jargon. Learning to “speak finance” is a lot like learning a foreign language. Yes, many financial terms are confusing, but with a little time and patience, the terminology becomes approachable. It’s important to get comfortable with financial lingo for two reasons: 1) it helps you build confidence and overcome mindset challenges about money, and 2) it allows you to understand concepts and ask savvy questions when speaking with your financial advisor.
