Don’t go to a financial adviser to learn about money, don’t go to a life insurance agent to learn about insurance, and definitely don’t go to a car salesperson to learn about buying a car. This is important, because these people have a conflict of interest (they make a living based on what they sell you). Instead, you should learn about money from teachers like Jane Bryant Quinn, Eric Tyson, etc.
You nailed this one, Katherine. Please allow me to add a few more names of teachers that are worthy of your attention. Here they are, including the two names Katherine provided:
Eric Tyson (all things money)
Jane Bryant Quinn (all things money)
Jonathon Clements (all things money)
John Bogle (investing)
William Bernstein (investing)
Burton Malkiel (investing)
Daniel Solin (investing)
Jason Zweig (the psychology behind money)
