Finance might not be everyone's idea of fun and interesting, but if you are good with numbers and like to stay organised then it can be a gratifying field to learn about and, ultimately, make a living from.
Many are quick to say that financial planning is just a part of everyday life admin, but financial planners would disagree. And so they should! There is so much more to finance than just money and spending, so to gain a better understanding of the field and the economy as a whole then you will need to enrol on a course or hire a tutor to explain this fascinating field to you.
Indeed we all face financial decisions on a daily basis, and trickier ones when it comes to purchasing or paying for some life's biggest possessions or occasions, but many of these involve getting advice from a financial advisor which just goes to show that their input is invaluable.
Do you want to reach retirement age, having squandered a lot of the money you made throughout your life and end up with nothing to show for your efforts?
The answer is probably no, in which case, finance could be a great subject for you!
By studying finance, you will put yourself in a much better position to make a difficult decision on behalf of your family. You could be the person responsible for doing what is best in securing your and your family's financial future, drawing from the information you learnt and the recommendations concerning investment and spending.
What's more, you might find yourself in a more confident position if and when thinking about starting up your own business. Without this grounding in the economy then you might have pulled back or enlisted the help of a financial advisor, something that you could be able to do yourself!
Finally, got loans? Or are you about to embark on your first student loan in order to study finance??

You could argue that one of the biggest challenges associated with finance is that many of us aren’t made familiar with it at school. It's not like we are taught about budgeting at a young age because advanced finance just doesn't apply to us at that stage in our lives. But imagine how it might affect our younger generation's perception of money and attitude towards spending if they were taught how to look after their money now!
Sadly, though, schools will rarely offer any kind of subject related to finance, and so the first time you come across the academic field might not be until the university level.
Finance is an important lesson and should be introduced much sooner in our opinion - don't you agree?!
