"People don't understand money, they don't understand budgets, they don't understand accounting, they don't understand insurance. They don't understand a lot of things," said UL professor of Finance Dr. William Ferguson.
No more excuses says Learnvest.com. The website is offering a financial boot camp to help women understand and manage their finances--and it's all free.
"Education is the key to success in any endeavor. Having that information available to people is a good thing," said Ferguson.
"I think everybody goes through a time when they spend money on things they don't really need," said UL student Karlencia Calvin.
The way the website works is simple. Women who are interested can sign up at learnvest.com. Once signed up, they will receive daily e-mails on how to manage their finances. Each e-mail is written by an expert and includes how-tos, tutorials, and quizzes.
The different boot camps range from managing personal finances to getting out of debt. Each one lasts about 15 to 17 days.
