This book grew out of teaching a class on Personal Finance. Every week, I asked teens what they wanted to learn. After they told me, I went to work: I interviewed everyone from self-made millionaires to happy couples. I scheduled over 60 guest speakers on every money and relationship topic imaginable. I read, researched, and experimented. And then I asked the teens again! And again.
Result: parent and student demand for the class went up, we doubled how many teens we reach, and I wrote this book so I could give it to every graduating class as a gift.
With over 100 bite-size chapters and exercises, Money for Teens: A Guide for Life discusses everything we could think of:
* Investing with index funds, which beat 99% of everything else that’s out there (if you’re looking at 15+ year time frame)
* Starting a business week
