Do your children have wealth and success habits? If not now, when and where will they learn them? 95% of what we do each day is by habit.

There is significant urgency to teach our youth these skills due to the fast paced, high tech world in which they are growing up. Money beliefs and attitudes have been proven to be developed by the age of seven and the daily decisions we make with money affect every part of our life from health to career to relationships.

Most schools do not teach these critical life skills as a part of the curriculum for more than a few hours in an entire year. How do we teach our children to develop good money habits and have a healthy relationship with money when the pressure to spend is so great in our society?
