C-Note Instant Poll* results—Personal Finance
High school students have their eyes on the future. The majority of C-Note readers voted "paying for college" and "saving for the future" as the personal finance topics they wish they knew the most about. "Buying a used car" came in last.
In "The College-Bound Shakedown: Affording Education," Kelsey speaks to young people who feel like quitting before they reach the front doors of their first classes.
"I'm here to tell you that you don't need to take a [financial] beating. There's money out there—it just requires some work to get your hands on it," she says in her first-hand account. Share it with members young and old!
Here is the recent instant poll question* and responses:
Q: Which personal finance topic do you wish you knew more about?
1. Buying a used car
2. Getting a credit card
3. Using a debit/check card
4. Paying for college
5. Saving for the future
