There is little doubt that many are facing financial hardships in our country today.
The statistics can be startling:
70% of Americans have less than $1000 saved for emergencies (SOURCE)
73% of Americans who die today are $62,000 in debt (SOURCE)
78% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck (SOURCE)

While it can be easy to point fingers and blame those who live in these circumstances, the truth of the matter is that many Americans lack the basic financial knowledge to avoid these pitfalls.
