Introduction

One of the biggest steps toward leading an independent life is financial independence. This means taking control of your money - both the money that you earn and the money that you spend.

Money is necessary to live and live well in our society, but you don't need a lot of money to be independent, successful, and happy. You do need to know how to manage the money you have and make it work for you.

This course is meant to help by explaining some of the most important elements of finance: Understanding where your money comes from (your income), where your money goes (taxes and expenses), and how you can manage that money (budgeting and saving.)
