No worries. Happy to help :) I would recommend taking a course though if you're interesting in pursuing for work. There are free university courses you can do online through coursera like this one that actually starts today: https://www.coursera.org/learn/uva-darden-financial-accounting#syllabus

There are a few Coursera courses on beginning accounting. I liked University of Virginia's "Financial Accounting Fundamentals". If you don't want a certificate the courses are free.

I'm kind of in the same boat are you in terms of knowledge.

There's also "Accounting for dummies", which you can probably find in hard copy or ebook at your local library.

I'll also plug the book "I Will Teach You to Be Rich" if you want to learn the basics of managing debt, budgeting, and investing.

It was admittedly a little difficult finding courses not part of a specialization that requires paying for. Here's the goods though.

Older ones that may/may not still be open:

Upcoming:

I think there's more but this should get you started. When you click enroll it will ask if you want to pay for it, just select the second option (free).

Good luck!
