About Nickavatar About

I've been interested in financial education since soon after I graduated college.  I had to.  After I graduated, I found myself heavily indebted, overspending and unable to save anything despite relatively high earnings for a recent college grad.

I learned through a lot of pain and heartache that the dumb financial decisions can dramatically impact enjoyment and quality of life for years.  I established this community in the hopes that I can spare others the pains and troubles that I unwittingly allowed myself to experience when I made poor choices.  The purpose of this community is to help young people, kids, teens, young adults and others learn the money lessons I wish I had learned when I was young, but had to learn later under much less fun circumstances.

Helping young people succeed is a primary motivator for me.  By giving them new ideas about money, I help young people get ahead.

Youth Financial Education is a site that is exclusively dedicated to helping young people plant their feet safely on the road of financial success.  It is my hope that you will visit here often.  If you are a parent, we will work with you to help you empower your children so they make financially smart choices.  If you are a young person, you will find this forum a great place to learn from others, interact and develop skills that take most of us years to develop–if we ever do.
