Americans need to spend more time managing money matters.
VERO BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, July 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Americans spend just over 2 minutes per day managing their financial affairs. At the same time they spend over 2 hours per day on social media. This time difference reflects how most people prioritize money matters. According to personal finance thought leader Harry N. Stout, this lack of dedicated time to making their money lives better is increasing household stress and anxiety levels. Stout is the author of the FinancialVerse books and blog.
