Money Quote #7

Homo doctus is se semper divitias habet – A wise man always has wealth in himself. -Latin Proverb

Today’s quote comes to us courtesy of the-twenty-per-cent.com

Katie says,

“I like this quote for a few reasons and not just because I’m always looking for an excuse to use my Classics degree! 
I’m really passionate about improving financial education and believe that knowing more will help you gain wealth and manage your finances far better in the long run.

Also, if you educate yourself, or are privileged enough to receive a good education, you will be equipped with skills and knowledge that will allow you to always be able to make money and forge a successful career.”

About- The Twenty Percent

A financial journalist, Katie created The Twenty Percent to help young people like herself. Financial education is practically non-existent, but now more than ever, it is important for us to take control of our finances.

The idea for the name came from the government’s furlough scheme, where many people are currently missing 20 percent of their income. It is also a nod to the gender pay gap – in the US women on average earn just 79 cents to the dollar.
