But you don't get anywhere.

Are Your Kids Money Savvy?

While reviewing current interest rates at, I came across this article on teaching kids to be money savvy. It's definitely worth a read.

Here is an excerpt:
"Children between the ages of 5 and 14 have direct purchasing power of more than $40 billion a year and influence $146 billion worth of purchases. Yet, few children are taught, either in school or at home, about managing money.

With schools forced to make tough choices on which "noncore" subjects to include in curriculums, parents are often left to teach financial skills on their own. For parents, many of whom don't feel confident in their own money-management prowess, teaching their kids how to manage money can be an intimidating task.

But don't put off addressing the issue."

Financial responsibility is one of the most valuable lessons parents can teach their children. It's never too early (or too late) to start.

Yours for success & properity,

Empty Pockets?

Empty pockets never held anyone back.
Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.
- Norman Peale

Norman Vincent Peale must have been talking to some real estate investors when he coined this quote. As the old saying goes: "Where there is a will, there is a way".

Have a great week-end,

Education vs Catastrophe

"Human history becomes more and more a
race between education and catastrophe."
- H. G. Wells (1866-1946)

The above quote struck me in view of current events
in the world. It's my belief that it's important to
look at the catastrophes as an opportunity to correct
some major problems and make the intelligent decision
to make things better, not try to recreate the lost for
the sake of nostalgia or fear of the unknown.

Have a great day!
