An Educated Illiterate

Hello to you my savvy readers, fans, followers and viewers. You have been such great support and inspiration on my Facebook page, instagram and the many many social media platforms where we hang out together.

Let’s get to it. Is it possible to be educated and illiterate at the same time? Well…I never really knew that was possible. Despite all that I know, I still have an element of naivety in me…don’t we all.

What I’m referring to here when I say illiterate isn’t to do with academic literacy per se. My brain is thinking about how a person can acquire so much academic qualifications and accolades and still remain financially illiterate!!!

I know someone like that. Earning huge rates of pay on a daily basis, with not a pot to piss in. It’s shocking, to say the least.

On the other hand, I also know someone who has absolutely no formal academic qualification whatsoever, who puts me to shame when it comes to their level of financial literacy – they’ll wipe the floor with me…literally.

As I like to keep everything I do very simple, I will leave you with just 1 thought – or perhaps another question to which I don’t have the answer….I’ll never claim to know everything there is to know about money.

Is it better to be academically literate, but financially illiterate or financially literate and academically illiterate?

Let’s have a debate about it and feel free to leave your comments.

Until next time, be good and keep smiling my savvy, stylish and sexy community.
