During this stage it is your parents, your inner drive to learn from various sources, your school district, the effort of others and the larger society all help to get you on a positive path to understanding at least the basics of personal finance and effective money management.
Growth Years Ages: 20 plus to mid 40’s or early 50’s
This is a time that you are working and attempting to strive to reach the goals that you set and at the same time possibly start a family. This is the stage that you must begin to show real responsibility (even if you did not do so during your formative years) as you must at this stage get an effective and highly beneficial understanding of how credit and finance really works and how you can use that understanding to better serve your interests and that of your family’s.
Conservation/Protection Years Ages: late 30’s to 40’s up until you retire or scale back on working
Once you have accumulated assets such as cd’s, stocks, bonds, retirement accounts, insurance policies, personal residence and vehicles etcetera–you must conserve and protect them and not go backward. If you get this stage right you can put yourself in a highly favorable position as you navigate the next stage.
Gifting Distribution Years Ages: 40 plus, particularly if you have planned right early in your life
You at this stage can truly be a blessing to others as you may have accumulated more than you can utilize during your lifetime.

You could possibly pay for your grandkids education, travel more extravagantly, and help others achieve success in a manner where your living standard would not be diminished.
