My November earnings almost reached 300 EUR (288), 22 EUR more than the previous month’s earnings. It’s not really an important step, as with my current spending habits it would only cover a 3rd of my expenses, but it’s still a step I want to cross.
A few weeks ago my company invited an external speaker and he held this course named “Financial Intelligence”. In essence, it was a good initiative. Teaching IT geeks getting paid high salaries that life is not all about spending.
Our schools used to teach us math, chemistry, physics, history, geography, biology, and nothing about real life. For the generations brought up under communism, money didn’t have any value. When we finally graduated to democracy, our teachers didn’t know anything about personal finance. Since they didn’t understand its importance, they never bothered to learn and then teach us about it.
