How To Increase Your Personal Financial Literacy with Harry Stout

In our country there is a huge deficit of financial education!

In today's Better Wealth, I had the privilege of interviewing Harry Stout who has worked over 25 years in the financial services industry all around the world. Harry is also an author of the “Financial Verse Series” which covers topics on money, life savings, annuities, life insurance, and more. Listen as Harry shares his desire for personal finances making it understandable for people of all ages.  Harry discusses with us the importance of financial education as our societies are changing and why people are now realizing how precious money as a resource really is. I ask Harry to explain two most important “Must DO” items from his book 1.) Have A Budget and 2.) Spend To, as well as, two points from his 8 Key Risks being 1.) Longevity Risk and 2.) Mortality Risk. Listen as he shares the reason why these are extremely important to him. I also ask Harry to dive into topics like inflation, adulting, the cost of learning, college tuition, up scaling, striving stage, credit cards, and long term care planning. Harry gives an incredible answer to the legacy question on humility and I am so honored to have had him on our show. Be sure to check out his books! “Financial Verse Series”
