Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy a lot of important stuff. Like a car (hello, freedom!), college and travel. Plus, all the necessities, like food, rent and clothes. But you can’t do any of that if you don’t know the basics about personal finance. That’s where we come in. “Financially Inclined From Marketplace” is a show about all the money lessons we wish we learned earlier — the ones that can help us live life on our own terms. Each episode, financial literacy advocate Yanely Espinal talks with some really smart people — influencers, high school students and a few experts. Together, we break down important money lessons. Consider us your one-stop shop for financial confidence. This show is created by Marketplace, in collaboration with Next Gen Personal Finance.
