At Investment Moats, we have profiled that Mint.com be one of the good choices for online personal finance software.
What makes Mint.com so good vs the competition is that it is such an innovative company when it comes to not just making their products very usable to users but also provide value added info and training to get you to take control of your finances. Here is a profile of Mint.com’s founder Aaron Patzer’s take on the importance of good design to encourage usability.
Today, we got the news that Mint will be partnering with Scholastic to offer a free online personal finance program to middle-school students, teachers and parents.
This program will aim to
- build money management skills at a young age
- use colorful classroom lesson plans and materials
- interactive game
I thought this is a great idea and puts an emphasis to what I said previously that one of the important life skills not thought in school is money management skills!
Since money is such an important part of our lives why aren’t the schools teaching more of it.
It is my belief that this will equip our next generation to be prudent and self sustaining.
