When I explain that I teach money habits to college kids, adults often tell me "I wish I had that kind of #personalfinance training when I was younger." I'm excited to see these kids getting a head start. It's never too early (or too late!) to start a conversation about money!
According to @guardian, 63% of people recalled a story, while only 5% recalled a statistic after a presentation. That's why I use stories to educate students about personal finance. For ex: how my grandma taught me about the power of showing up and standing out. Thanks, grandma!
I love college #FinancialAid offices and #FinancialLiteracy programs because the work you do is SO valuable. It’s life-changing when students learn good money habits. Keep up the amazing work you do - we are all better for it!
Great advice from @adamcarroll at #FinCon18. “If you’re asked to do a speaking event, and they don’t have a budget, you can still get paid: ask them to shoot photo and video.”
Good reminder to advocate for yourself!
