April is Financial Literacy Month! So even though you probably won't read this until you've decompressed from the busy season, we thought it'd be a good idea to remind CPA's, and those working on becoming
, of the importance of spreading the word on financial

While the current economic crisis has reminded us of the importance of financial literacy, it can still be a daunting
subject. We don't expect CPA's to verse the entire world on the
intricacies of economic policy, but the wealth of knowledge CPA's posses
should not be limited to clients and colleges. The basic principles of
personal finance apply to everyone, despite age or income, and who
better than the trusted financial authorities to inform their friends
and communities about healthy financial practices.

We've come up with 3 simple things you can do to spread the word on this important
topic and we'll be introducing them separately over the course of the
coming weeks. First step:

Know Your Resources
The AICPA has tons of information available for people of all different ages and different
stages in life. 360
Degrees of Financial Literacy
contains guides and advice on
everything from setting up a retirement plan to putting a household
budget together. The Feed
the Pig
campaign goes another step further to suggest and encourage
lifestyle choices that encourage a savings plan and planning
financially for the future. They even have a campaign targeted to
teenagers to instill good financial habits at an early age.

So be aware of the resources that are out there, so much work has already
been done for you. You just need to know where to point others. Here are
some additional resources:

Federal Reserve Education

US Government's My Money
Jump Start Coalition for Financial Literacy
