Adulting 101: A Guide to Personal Finance: Things Young Adults Should Know About Finances As They Enter Adulthood - 3154


Pickup available at Bookstore

Usually ready in 4 hours

With over 40 years of industry experience, Steve Mayer takes subjects like reading a paycheck, or doing your own taxes and explains them in an easy to read format that young adults can relate to. Personal finance isn't taught in school and students are leaving without the basic fundamentals in how to run their lives from an accounting perspective. The goal with this book is to ensure that teens moving toward adulthood have the basic skills they need to make decision regarding their personal finances. This book is provided free of charge to young adults through donations to The 5 Bucket 4 Shovels Foundation, whose mission it is to fund financial literacy for young adults. Through the sale of our other two books, 5 Buckets, 4 Shovels, a Beach and a Map, and The Toughest Guy I Ever Knew and Other Short Stories, both available through, all profits go directly to the foundation to fund the mission. We also receive donations directly through our relationships with our corporate sponsors. Our hope is that Adulting 101: A Guide to Personal Finance will easily become the go-to reference book for young adults looking for basic information about personal finance. Many of SD Mayer & Associates clients provide this book to their own kids and find it to be very helpful in explaining these basic concepts.
