• Personal finance management

    For a very long time I have been so ignorant about my finances that after gaining some knowledge, I felt like I have been living under a rock. Yes, like any other basic knowledge you need for your day to day life, knowing how to manage your finances is equally important. Very recently did I dive into stuff like these but trust me, I’m finding it very interesting now. Finance management is something that you need to do yourself and not trusted to any other person. So, it is very important that you know what you are doing.

    I’m a freelance developer and I was not bothered until recently I found that I could save a lot of taxes by investing a part of my earnings in a few returns based funds. This is a very great thing as you get the returns benefits as well as you save on your taxes. But how well you do that so you get the maximum returns, depends on how well you know about it or research on it. I still don’t have a clear idea about it. I really think that every college student should be taught well regarding this. In my college I remember having accounts classes which I think is crap. Not everyone needs to know accounting and stuff. But finance management is something every citizen needs to know and have good knowledge about.

    Lately, I have been reading and researching online about equities, mutual funds, insurance and I have gained considerable knowledge about them. Thanks to the internet! I have found a few well-acclaimed financial websites where I’m bound to be frequently visiting for the rest of my life. Also, a few blogs, some of them even personal ones, have turned out to be a huge help to me because of their explanation of both basic and advance stuff in lucid language. I highly recommend Personal Money which I’m very impressed of for their easy to understand explanations, reviews and advices on making efficient investments and better financial management.

    I find that a lot of my friends are still ignorant as I was about this, but I’m sure they would dive into the market paranoia very soon. I suggest you start researching today!
