Money talks, buys us freedom, greases the wheels.
But let's face it... it can also be really awkward.
In fact, no topic induces as much squeamish conversation, passive-aggression and etiquette confusion as the green stuff. Forget sex, politics and religion--try asking someone how much they make and watch conversation come to a screeching halt and the awkward silence descend.
Money is our society's last taboo, and we'd like to change that. We at LearnVest believe in trying to make money more of an open topic of conversation, so we can start sharing and supporting each other in our journey to financial freedom and living richly.
