Welcome to Episode 237 of Building My Legacy.
In this podcast we talk with Vince Shorb, a thought leader in teaching and scaling financial education programming. Vince shares with us how he developed a passion and interest in money from a young age and was always frustrated that high schools didn’t teach students financial literacy — something that benefits all students. If you’ve ever wondered how to begin educating your own children about money management — or you need help yourself to reach financial wellness — you’ll find our discussion especially valuable.
So if you want to know:
- What financial literacy really means
- When children begin to develop habits about their finances and what influences them most
- How parents can take advantage of financial “teachable moments”
- The biggest challenges most people face with regard to personal finance
- The role behavior and sentiment play in money management
