Today, a majority of consumers are experiencing some sort of financial difficulty causing a significant impact on their everyday lives. In fact, Americans carry more than $2 trillion in consumer debt and 30 percent of consumers report having no extra cash; making it impossible to escape the burden of living paycheck to paycheck.
April has been declared National Financial Literacy Month; and for good reason. Too many Americans are insufficiently educated about their personal finances. In honor of Financial Literacy Month, the experts at Money Management International (MMI) created FinancialLiteracyMonth.com. No matter what day or month of the year a consumer begins their 30 step path to financial wellness, it will help them to create a successful strategy to better their overall financial position.
