Financial Foundations: Saving, Spending, Debt

Life Skills

On Demand

30 mins


Host: Sam is a Particle Physicist turned Data Scientist and is now the CEO of Moneyed, a company committed to improving financial wellbeing at work using tech and applied AI.

Sam will briefly introduce the different ways that you can save, the importance of having an emergency fund, and will talk about how you can earn free money via compounding.

She’ll cover the difference between essential and discretionary spending and outline the SMART way to stick to a budget.

And finally, Sam will discuss the different types of debt, what to look out for to make sure your debt doesn’t become unmanageable, and learn about how, for most people, student loans aren’t really debt - they’re an additional tax.
