“5 Best Finance Videos for Beginners”

Finance is by no means the easiest things to manage, and for most of us they are hardly any fun to worry about either. Most bad news begins or ends with the monetary economies of adulthood. However, they are an important reality about getting older, so knowing a little bit about the basics early can help you tremendously down the road. Anything from tackling student debts, planning early for retirement (which will be a focal point of a future article here as well, watch for that [here]), auto loans, credit cards, and even just the purpose of a general savings account anymore. These following videos do a good job being both entertaining and educational about the topic of finance. So skip your usual vlogs and add these to your Watch Later list for the next time you have a minute of free time of the train or in that Uber.
