Let's face it, even if you didn't buy or sell GameStop or AMC lately, your investment values were still impacted by the market volatility caused by these stocks. And if you are a keen market watcher like us, it is highly likely that you were caught up in the news frenzy around these shares. But at least one market observer, Shark Tank’s Kevin O'Leary, does not think the crazy swings are all bad.“[Investors] are learning about the risks of the market. We forgot to educate them in high school so let them learn in the real world, which is even better,” he said on CNBC. So if you have a high schooler at home, be sure to introduce them to Finhive's Financial Adulting Toolkit. [ICYMI] Last month I had the wonderful opportunity to be a guest on a panel hosted by the town of Wellesley and Babson College, Sustainable Wellesley Presents: Banking on Our Values. I enjoyed sharing my perspective with the community and was impressed by their insightful questions. I know this topic is close to heart for many of us as we have had many conversations in the W&I classes on investing our values. I hope to continue the conversation on this important topic.
