Confession of 20-Something Professional
I'm still new to this "on my own" thing, and have a confession to make. I do not understand a zip about my 401K. As much as Mint tries to "explain" it to me with graphs, I am thoroughly confused about how I'm making or losing money. I truly believe there needs to be a personal finance class given in either high school or college (or both!) so that people like me and the rest of the working world can understand investing in an easy-to-swallow way. Anyone else with me?
PS I also thought the "Confused Ikea Man" was super cute to use in this post.
