Did you know that the U.S. ranks 14th globally in Financial literacy and rates only 57% of adults as having financial literacy? When we look at stats that show us that more than half of adults are financially anxious and four out of five youths fail financial literacy quizzes, we NEED HELP!

Thankfully we have financial experts like, Cindy Couyoumjian, to help us navigate the world of finances!

FIRST, you need to know that if you don’t have a strong financial literacy, It’s not your fault! I think we need to talk about money more openly because the days of “we don’t talk about money” haven’t served us.

In this episode, Cindy and I talk about:

When to teach children to talk about currency and why

when to begin using piggy banks

When to start involving their children in financial transactions

When to get them a bank account
