Do you know where your knowledge of financial literacy and competency came from? For many of us, the way we save and spend our money comes directly from the lessons we learned around us. Most of those early finance lessons depend significantly on how we see our parents or guardians spend their money. We’ve had several financial conversations on our podcast, and today’s discussion will differ. Our guests, Lola and Dupe Ajayi are twin sisters passionate about teaching others the truth about finance and kids.
When I think back to my early memories of money, the visual imagery I reflect on is seeing my grandmother keep her savings under her mattress and keep her largest bills safely pinned to her bra with safety pins. I’m sure this sounds like too much information, but if you group up around your elders, you probably can think back to someone in your family who did the same with their money.
