When you start learning about finances, all the help that you can get is appreciated. Reading books and listening to podcasts is one of the best ways to learn all there is to learn about managing your finances, making smart investments, being aware of the money decisions you make, getting out of debt, paying off loans, filing your taxes – everything under the sun when it comes to finances.
You can listen to podcasts that cover broader financial topics when you are starting out and then start focusing on the ones that revolve around specific advice in the area that you need. When you are learning what you need from another person who knows what they are talking about, it becomes easier to understand.
