This week we are talking about what it means to be financially responsible, how to save money and how to start thinking about money management even in your teens. We’re joined by Dan Fooks of TheFinancialFix.co who started his financial adventures at age sixteen and has seen great success in growing his money.
Dan gives us some hints, tricks and advice on how to make our money work for us. From looking at multiple streams of income to how to wisely invest your money safely we learn how even with a small savings from an allowance or doing chores can get you started with your own portfolio with the help of your parents. It’s never too you to start saving money, and it’s certainly never too young to have your money start working for you.
This week we talk about how to handle some of the typical changes that teens face both emotionally and socially. We discuss the what some of these changes are, the tell-tale signs of teens struggling to cope with these changes and techniques to help recognize when teens are struggling and how to help deal with them. We also touch on what we as parents can do proactively to help prepare our children to face these changes and the type of environment we can offer our teens that will allow them the ability to better cope with these situations.
This week we explore the wonders, benefits and rewards of the furry, feathered and scaled members of the family folks refer to as our pets. We look at reasons why people keep pets, the benefits teens gain from their pets and the health benefits we all get from our pets. We’ll also take a look at some interesting statistics on pets to better understand their impact on us and then we’ll introduce you to our pets. Another great podcast!
