It's a jungle out there

The best lesson I learned about life and money was from my dad.

I grew up being very budget-conscious,

I always saved part of my weekly allowance provided by my father.

I focused on how much I spent on lunches with friends which was tough as a kid living in Beverly Hills!! 

Giving me an allowance taught me about trade-offs and the value of making good decisions (and bad decisions) from the time I was in high school. 

As Einstein said, the true value of education “is not the learning of many facts but the training of the mind to think.”

For those who have been following me for a while, not only did I balance my own bank book as a kid, but I also balanced my mom’s check book while in high school (not by choice but by necessity) so now I’m realizing maybe my calling is to help your kids balance their allowance?

Who knows but it can't hurt to try!

And if you have been following my last few posts, I’ve talked about developing a simple budgeting tool. Thank you for all of your support and for encouraging me to go ahead. 

Getting your kids to start thinking about making small, micro-decisions about what they are buying and working within a budget is the best love you can give them. 

A thoughtful and caring father who wants to set his daughter up for success can be one of the best investments he will ever make.
