A foundation sits on top of a footing and supports the rest of the building. Your Financial Foundation is your knowledge. At no fault of our own, we are given limited information and that alone is what we use to manage our finances. With that limited information, if what you knew to be true turned out not to be true, when would you want to know that? A quote by Alvin Toffler, author of Future Shock, puts it this way- “The illiterate of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn” (The “unlearning” part is important, because you cannot install a new program unless the old version is uninstalled). Your willingness to build on your Financial Foundation will be key to building your Financial Fortress.
