Knowledge is the New Money

The world is open to them in a way we, as adults, sometimes have a tough time remembering. And when they are young, their minds are very open to new ideas and concepts. It's those same ideas and concepts that become their concrete reality, shaping who they become later in life. Traditional education prepares kids well to be employees, which is really working to help achieve someone else's dream. I believe financial education gives kids the tools to achieve financial freedom and pursue their dreams without any limitations.

The problem is that those rules of money are obsolete; they don't work any longer, and there are a whole set of new rules for financial success. Teaching kids about how money really works sets them up to be successful in this new financial reality. And, as we like to say at Rich Dad: Knowledge is the new money. - in a recent interview with
