Financial Literacy for Educators.

In this article, we will be looking at What is financial Literacy,  why do Educators need financial Literacy, and how Educators can get involved in making money.

These three areas are what I will briefly touch on with this article on financial Literacy for Educators.

What is financial Literacy?

Financial Literacy is the possession of the set of skills and knowledge to help you make, manage and multiple money.

You can pick the different key phrases and begin to ponder and Expand on them etc

  • Set of Skills
  • knowledge to help
  • Make, manage and Multiply 
  • Money

One of the lowest earning sector in Nigeria within the private sector are  the educators in the private sector.

This has become a dogma, a way of life for the educators especially those in the private sector.
One question every educator must ask him/herself is:

With my meagre salary, what will my life look like 15-20 years from now especially for those  who are now in their late 40s

Why are Educators not making money?
Does it mean that they don’t know any of the key phrases above?
How Can the people who teach others to be great be among the poorest?
Poorest mentally and financially for that matter
Why are Educators so comfortable in lack?
So vulnerable to insult ant deprivation?

There are so many questions to ask
At this point in time, educators need to

– maximise whatever income they have
– increase their financial capability, financial intelligence

Prayer and Money answers all things, thus Educators must learn how to Make, manage and Multiply money

Do you as an educator know how to make money?
Let me re-ask that question in pidgin
You Sabi make money?
Where is money?
Are you following the money?
Don’t come and tell me about passion
Passion without money will put pressure on you
The Truth is
Any dummy can make money
But can he/she duplicate and repeat the process?
Remember,Passion  –  money = Pressure 

Making money is action, managing money is behavior an multiplying money is knowledge
Dear Educator, in your journey to making money, Never:

  • pity yourself
  • Excuse yourself
  • Underestimate yourself

For today’s session
Our focus is on the make part of the make , manage and Multiply
How do you make money
As an educator who is an employee

Never quit your job because of unfounded passion
Hunger will teach you the meaning of being broke, so receive sense.
When you work on your school owners school during the day, work on your set of skills during the night.

You must push yourself to make money.

1. Invest in yourself to acquire a skill that is marketable, sellable and can be monetized
2. Don’t save to spend, but save to Invest.
If you are able to save money put that money saved into an investment and not use it for expenditure
3. Avoid keeping money in the bank beyond the money you need for transaction, precautionary motives

The question I have often been asked over time is: Where do I invest?
You can invest your money into
