Career Girls Empowerment Lesson Video Series:
Financial Literacy (1:35 sec)

This video is all about money: how to make it, spend it, and save it.

What do you want? What do you need? Understanding what you want and what you need is a big part of learning about finances. Finance has to do with how people manage money, and the role models in this video share some good advice about managing your money. Whether it’s birthday or babysitting money, you'll learn that putting some of it away will pay off later. (You might even discover that you'd enjoy a career in finance so you can manage other people's money!)
