Financial literacy isn't a skill -- it's a lifestyle. Take it from Curtis "Wall Street" Carroll. As an incarcerated individual, Caroll knows the power of a dollar. While in prison, he taught himself how to read and trade stocks, and now he shares a simple, powerful message: we all need to be more savvy with our money.

What everyone has been saying about Mr Martin dale is true. I'm three weeks into his trading and have BTC in wallet waiting to be cashed out, I still can't believe it, finally a tutor that teaches something that actually works. I recommend him to anyone who has lost or is new to trading. Email [email protected]
Love this guys speech and I agree with many points he makes, but unless those classes also show how a person can make, and then increase their income it won't matter. There are people who are financially literate, but for some reason they can only get so far in their careers if anywhere at all that it prevents them from being able to save money to invest, These jobs are mostly low wage jobs that are considered dead end jobs as well. There are even some still trying to get a higher education, myself included" but cannot seem to get further than that low wage job. as stated by Jean luc Picard in Star Trek: "It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. " This isn't the full quote but I feel this part still applies even though the quote is from a fictional character. I believe to solve the issue is we need to adjust our bottom line, People in low wage jobs should be able to live easily in this day and age with even a dead end job and in most places that is still very difficult even with two jobs these days. Fighting for minimum wage increase won't help either and everything will go up in price. What really needs to be fixed is inflation as the value of the dollar decreases the prices of things must increase to equal their original value, however not everything increases at the same rate where minimum wage has only increased slightly the cost of houses has nearly tripled while the cost of higher education has quadrupled.
Wow i didnt expect the vidio to be this good. This guy was great. This is definitely one of the best ted vidios ive watched. Deserves much much much more views.
The honest truth is the system is designed for failure. The powers that be have it that way so only some succed and the majority fail.60 percent of americans have less then 1000 dollars in savings that says it all. They know how to hep those with financial problem and all the aspects of live and behaviour that effect it but choose not to. America and the world would be such a great place if the powers that be wanted to help people rather then see them fail.
Simply BRILLIANT.....we need this in the UK too. We have Martin Lewis but we desperately need to teach the kids at school, as well as prison!, about finance and business, in this complicated modern world.
If they are NOT taught this then they just become defenceless mice scuttling around on the ground wasting their money. Unfortunately, the immoral 'business' vultures are circling around above these poor youngsters, working out how to get what money they have out of their pockets into theirs.
Uploading contracts to an online database should not take too long, and with the right solution, there should be a way to quickly drag and drop them into folders. Of course, the contract management team may want to give some thought as to how those folders are categorized. In some industries, it may make sense to classify them by agreement type, whereas in others they may need to be grouped by timeframe or date. It is obviously important to do what makes sense for your company and to ensure everyone understands the classification system that is instituted. With this sort of well-oiled system in place, it is a lot easier to keep a handle on things.
Divide and Conquer.
This is another area that is very industry-dependent, but it is highly unlikely that any company can afford to have an entire contract team devoted to managing one portfolio. More than likely, it is more realistic to divvy up the team and the contracts so that there is a leader for each relevant sphere. The entire team will obviously have to coordinate and communicate, but resources must be allocated in the most efficient manner possible. In turn, this will allow for several individuals to keep an eye on a smaller batch of contracts, thereby facilitating those periodic reviews.
