Financial Forum

I think it would be awesome to have a Finance-Forum where shroomerites could share financial tips and secrets and spread the wealth of knowledge!

If you're like the average North American, earning at least $25,000 a year, then in your lifetime over $1 million will flow through your fingers. That's a lot of money. Now for the bad news. If you're like most people, you'll spend it all and, after a lifetime of earning, end up with almost nothing. How can that be? Frankly, nobody teaches us about money. We recieve no formal education in the most critical of all life skills--how to become financially successful. Did you ever, in all your years of public education, attend a class entitled "Money 101"? Why isn't such a class mandatory in every elementary school?

How have you learned what you know about money? You picked it up, a piece here... a tip there. You absorbed attitudes from your parents, from the media. You observed the examples of friends. You proceeded through trial and error... the school of hard knocks. What you learned was haphazard, mostly wrong, and certainly out of context. Most of the books you read about the subject probably overwhelmed you with details or bored you with useless facts. If you're like most, you're confused and frustrated.

Yet money is one of the most important subjects of your entire life. Some of life's greatest enjoyments and most of life's greatest disappointments stem from your decision about money. Whether you experience great peace of mind or constant anxiety will depend on getting your finances under control. Your relationships will be greatly affected. In fact, most divorces in our society result from disagreements about money. Understanding money--how to make it and keep it---is absolutely essential to your life, to your relationships, to your happiness, to your future.

So what do we have to lose by trying out a Finance forum for us Shroomerites? I propose that this would be a great, solid idea that can benefit and help many of us, including yourself!  :sun:

it might take traffic away from the culinary arts forum. And we can't have that now can we?

Oh god forbid people stray from special cornbread recipes and learn financial wisdom and Money-tips instead!  :wink:

Because if new forums explode like a type II supernova, the Shroomery might collapse into a singularity.


Sorry, too much studying for Astronomy final... :yawn:
