Success isn’t developed in a bubble. Oprah Winfrey credited Maya Angelou for helping her develop as a TV personality and a human being. “She was there for me always, guiding me through some of the most important years of my life. The world knows her as a poet but at the heart of her, she was a teacher,” Winfrey wrote in a touching Instagram post after the famed poet’s passing in 2014. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sought advice from Apple’s then-CEO Steve Jobs during Facebook’s early stages, and late CBS anchor Walter Cronkite publicly thanked a high school journalism teacher for inspiring his path.
Remember when mom taught you to balance a checkbook? Unfortunately, not every child learns how to manage their personal finances at home. Or even at school. One recent study of young adults by The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development showed that more than 60% of American teens don’t know how to complete basic financial tasks such as budgeting and balancing accounts.

Having a spending plan allows us to be intentional about spending and provides a roadmap to financial goals.
