April is Financial Literacy Month

April is National Financial Literacy Month, that time of year we set aside a few minutes to learn how money really works and apply new-found lessons to our financial lives.

This year I am honored to be working together with over a dozen Personal Finance Bloggers to promote financial literacy with 2-minute videos about a variety of topics such as Kids & Money, Roth IRA, or what do you do with a room that has no room? We will share a video each working day in April. You can watch the video of the day below. Enjoy and remember: there is always Help and Hope for Your Finances!

April 30 Video: Steve Stewart from MoneyPlanSOS.com concludes our series of videos with a strong call for continuing the efforts to educate everyone on how to manage their finances:
