Imagine you get laid off. Or that you have a new exciting job opportunity that doesn't pay very much in the beginning. Or that you have a great idea for a business.

In all of these cases, imagine you aren't financially secure. What do you do? Do you let go of these opportunities?

Financial freedom can give you the wings you need to protect yourself and follow your dreams. Being financially prepared with an emergency fund, the right insurance, a strong budget, and planning cash flow is critical to navigating such situations in your career.

So financial literacy is an essential skill for career mobility.
