Teaching Young People About Money

I taught over 500 young people about money at West Ridge Church in Dallas, GA recently, and it was INCREDIBLE!  I was teaching from my book, What Everyone Should Know About Money Before They Enter The Real World.

Here is what stood out to me:

  • They were very energetic – but also paid attention very well
  • The compound interest example captured ALL of their attention – even the 6th and 7th graders!
  • Young people dream more than adults
  • Their dreams are much less impacted by the potential financial cost
  • They are just more passionate about life – period!
  • Most of them are more aware of money and money issues than the young people I was teaching five years ago.  I think the global recession has caused this generation to truly pay attention to money.
  • They clearly know that it is EZ™ to win with money!

FIRED UP!

I am excited to bring the crusade to the Portland, Oregon area THIS WEDNESDAY – March 16th – at Mountainview Christian Church (Pastor TJ Southard).

We will be training financial coaches on Wednesday afternoon with the Financial Learning Experience that evening at 6:30PM.   At the same time, a member of our team will be teaching the youth how to PREVENT financial mistakes in the first place.

I’m FIRED UP!

If you are in the area, I would love to see you there!
