The ultimate kids’ guide to money: earning it, saving it, and investing it.
Hey, kids, want to become a millionaire? Or get a business off the ground? Or save up some money to buy a new bike? All it takes is understanding and putting into practice a few simple strategies and concepts about money:
Make it: Learn the ins and outs of scoring a first job, or even better, starting a business.
Save it: That’s right, millionaires are people who have a million dollars, not people who spend a million dollars.
Grow it: Invest and use the most powerful force in the financial universe––compound interest.
Next thing you know, you’re a bona fide financial whiz on the road to your first million. Now get going!
A thorough introduction to finance from the people behind BizKid$, How to Turn $100 into $1 Million includes chapters on setting financial goals, making a budget, getting a job, starting a business, and investing smartly – and how to think like a millionaire. Plus: a one-page business plan template, a two-page plan to become a millionaire, and a personal budget tracker.
“As you follow their plan, your interests will grow––and so will your money. Meanwhile, excuse me, I’ve got to reread a few sections.”––Bill Nye the Science Guy
