My passion for financial education is rooted from a deep concern for youth aging out of foster care and their caregivers who havent had a formal education on the importance of money management and financial literacy. As a former foster child, I know firsthand how devastating the lack of financial education and resources can be for a child who already has one strike against them: being uprooted from their biological parents due to abuse and/or neglect. So I have dedicated my life to raising awareness and educating parents, teachers, and youth about the importance of having a sound understanding of the basics of personal finance to achieve success. Journey Into Finance is about a young womans journey into the world of personal finance while working for one of the largest banks in the United States. This book tells of her transformation out of poverty, lessons she learned from the rich and not so famous clients in the process, and spans over her lifetime. Copyright 2016 by Elise Towner.

Reviewed by Tshombye K. Ware for Readers' Favorite Journey into Finance by E.N. Towner is a testimony of one woman’s experience with eliminating debt and restoring credit after bankruptcy. The book deals with all aspects of monetary responsibilities that many people take for granted. These responsibilities include: balancing a checkbook, understanding the value of checking and savings accounts, knowledge of maintenance and overdraft fees. The author educates the reader from an inside view about the mindset of a banking institution when dealing with its customers. She shares banking tidbits to help financially educate readers. It is an educational book on the finances of banking that will empower you to create a better monetary portfolio. A profound statement made by the author can be found in the early pages of the book. “Manage your cash flow by creating a budget plan and stick to it using discipline." I found this book to be quite helpful in view of the valuable information the author provides. "You are the person responsible for filling your life with happiness, new and exciting career options, nurturing family time, and compatible relationships because you deserve it, and that is true freedom." The author makes a philosophical point concerning the mind. “Lesson learned: The key is to change one's thought process; thereby, breaking the cycle that keeps us mentally poor. The only limitation occurs within the mind.” Throughout the book are treasures of knowledge about goal setting, banking, investments, success, and establishing a legacy. This is definitely a book I would recommend to anyone suffering financial difficulties and to those looking for a mental edge concerning every facet of life in relation to economic awareness.
