Before you get into specific financial topics, understanding the fundamentals is crucial.


Banking accounts allow you to store your money and transfer funds to other accounts or individuals as you need.

Debt is money you owe to another party. It isn’t always negative, but debt can become an issue without a repayment strategy in place.
