April is Financial Literacy Month – by Scotty Jung

Being in the mortgage industry, I’ve observed that being more financially literate enables you to make smarter money management decisions that can lead directly to a financially secure future.

With that in mind, I wanted to share a few tips I recently came across in an article that could help you increase your financial literacy:

  • Read on the subject

    Reading on financial issues is one of the easiest & fastest ways to engage in financial literacy.

  • Take a class

    You can also benefit from taking financial literacy courses on a number of subjects. Online financial courses are easy to find. Your local community college may also offer some options.

  • Listen to podcasts and radio shows

    Tuning in to a finance and/or investment podcast or listening to Dave Ramsey broadcasts can be a good launching point to financial literacy. These shows usually offer real-world personal financial scenarios.

  • Watch Video/YouTube
    Video is a great way to absorb some personal finance lessons. It can help you understandmoney, saving and investing better—and best of all, it’s free.
  • Talk to a financial professional
    Getting the facts from a financial expert in person is a great learning experience. Plus, you get the valuable opportunity to ask personal financial questions that are important to you.

It’s never too late – or too early – to increase your financial literacy.


Why Your Networking is Ineffective
was my topic at various events like Carriage Inn, Habitude Warrior Conference, HWCOC Business Wellness Networking, CBFA – Cypress, Sugar Land, & Katy Networking Lunch,  Alvin Sunrise Rotary Club, InHouston Katy Premier Networking Event, Small
Business Today Magazine Meet  & Mingle, and others. If your group would like to have a presentation on Incongruent Networking contact me  at or see me at one of the top networking events.

My Interview by Don Terell on Top Networking Tips


Listen to my interview on Top Networking Tips on the Don Terrell Show at:


 Messed Up Spelling

In the early 1500s  printing press technology meant publishers—rather than scribes—became in charge of language, and they started to standardize spelling. Simultaneously, the Great Vowel Shift was underway. People changed the way they pronounced vowels in vast groups of words,
without telling the publishers! This is why we ended up with so much inconsistency: ‘ea’ sounds different in knead, bread, wear and great.


Book Review:  The Good Millionaire  by T. Harv Eker

Would you like to make a lot of money? Would you like to help others? A lot of people want to do both of those things. They want to make a lot of money so they can make a difference in other people’s lives. But most people will tell you that you can’t do both. They say it’s one or the other. You can either make a lot of money, OR you can make a difference in the world.

But guess what? This couldn’t be further from the truth! In The Good Millionaire, you’ll discover how you can combine making money and helping others. In fact, you’ll learn why you HAVE to do both if you want to create true financial wealth.

This isn’t just something that business school grads or “well-connected” people can do.

Every second there are about 40,000 searches on Google. And many of those searches are people looking for a solution to a problem. They’re looking for a solution, but maybe it doesn’t exist. Or they’re looking for a better solution than what’s out there.

And when you create one of those solutions, you not only make their lives better, you can make a LOT of money, too.

You can learn this skill. You just need to learn it from someone who’s been where you’re at, and who has achieved the wealth you want to achieve. That’s where The Good Millionaire can help. Not only will it help you find the right problem to solve, but you’ll discover the answer to questions:

How do I know if I’ve chosen the right problem to solve?

How do I get the word out about my solution, so I can get customers?

How do I handle competitors who are solving a similar (or the very same) problem?

How do I help a lot of people without working myself to death?
How do I go from making a living to making a fortune?

How do I make sure I don’t get in my own way?

Join me in learning from T. Harv Eker, author, businessman and motivational speaker known for his theories on wealth and motivation. He is the author of the book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind published by HarperCollins. Using the principles he teaches, THarv Eker went from zero to millionaire in only two and a half years. He is president of Peak Potentials Training.


Have a healthy, happy, prosperous networking week!
