Better Financial Decisions and Improved Financial Literacy

Austin Texas at Night

My name is Greg Rice and I am the founder and President of Sightful Software of Austin TX, the provider of FinanSavvy. We created this new kind of service because money is a difficult topic. We have a plan to make the topic of money easier for millions of individuals and families by making our service available to employers and directly from our site.

Our approach is based on the idea that learning by engaging and experimenting with a dynamic system is the best way to improve financial literacy. This contrasts with watching videos or having infrequent discussions with experts and certainly with having someone hand you a ready made to-do list.

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." - Benjamin Franklin

People worry a lot about money whether they earn a lot of it or not. I did for most of my life. I worry a lot less about money now. This is because I now understand the things that using FinanSavvy illustrates. Some of those things include:

  • You have a lot of control over how things turn out for you financially in the long run, even if you have what feels like very little control in the short term.
  • You can gain a feel for the factors that combine to determine your financial success over time. There are many different things to consider in combination, but not infinite things.
  • Uncertainty can be managed. There is a lot of uncertainty about the individual things that effect your financial outcomes and about the short term, but looked at on the whole and with a longer term perspective, that uncertainty is far less.
  • Financial literacy cannot be outsourced. A "black box", whether software or a person, where you feed in a pile of information and get told what to do will not lead to success. Things will change quickly invalidating that advice. More importantly, if you do not understand yourself how specific behaviors connect to long term outcomes, you will not be inspired to engage in them.

The Company

We are a small company. This means that we will not compromise our sole mission of helping people take control of their financial well being. We do not sell investment products or take money from people who do. We do not want your portfolio or even to tell you how to invest. Our users are our only customer and who we are entirely beholden to and dependent upon.
