Zoey is 6 and Calvin is 3. I’ve got a long way to go before they’re off on their own, but I’ve heard it’s never too early to start. According to a survey by NEFE, only 24% of Millennial respondents showed basic financial literacy.
Since my kiddos are the children of Millennials (Generational Alpha), I’ve been working hard to improve my financial know-how so my kids are NOT lumped into that 24%.
As part my learning process, I asked Bill Dwight to join me on the show today. As a father of 5 and a former Oracle executive, Bill took his passion for software, his love for his children and his desire to promote financial literacy and started a company called FamZoo.
This company offers a prepaid card for kids so they can learn about how money really works. FamZoo’s goal is to bring financial literacy to 40 million American kids through thoughtful parent-moderated payment technology.
