If you are like me, you feel strongly about having more financial literacy in our schools. Many of us have learned about money and its importance for our own autonomy but a lot of times the hard way. We can prevent the hardships we have gone through and improve the financial education for future generations if it is included more often in the school curriculum.

In this episode, Yanely Espinal, also known as MissBeHelpful, is a financial educator and Director of Educational Outreach at the nonprofit Next Gen Personal Finance ( shares her upbringing and experiences/lessons she has had around money and led her to piling $20k in credit card debt.
