A Behavioral Approach to Financial Education

Scottmarsh.com provides the public with a collaborative, dynamic, and growing wealth of personal financial information and resources. Nearly all of the content on the website was developed and contributed by students at a well-known research university.

In order for a financial strategy to be effective, it must not only be based on sound financial principles, but also be automatic in nature. Research has repeatedly shown that the more automatic an investing strategy, the higher the chance of success. What good is an investing strategy if you quit one month after beginning?

We at scottmarsh.com suggest three automatic, proven tactics to begin your path to financial freedom. Click on any of the three steps below to see ideas about how to get started.

  1. Purchase a home
  2. Contribute at least 10% of your income to a 401(k)
  3. Begin using an accelerated debt reduction program


If you would be wealthy, think of saving as well as getting.
