As you know my mantra is
“Live the Life you Deserve”
I think there are many people who do not believe that they should have wealth let alone generational wealth. My parents both came from families that did not have a lot of money. They instilled the importance of education in my sister and I and education is one of the keys to wealth. My upbringing was filled with the value of a dollar which instilled a very strong work ethic in my sister and I. My father worked for a company my entire life but he also was an entrepreneur. We traveled a lot as a family and that is definitely something I want my children to experience. I believe one of the biggest things missing in our community is classes on investing. My parents have learned a lot about investing later in life and I wish this was something that was taught in school at a younger age to help us to understand how to create generational wealth. I mentored some kids who attended Ariel Elementary School which is a Charter School started by Ariel Capital Management. Each student gets money when they start the school and learn how to invest and when they graduate they receive the money that they have earned. I wish this was the norm for schools everywhere.
Please watch the trailer and definitely check out “Generation One” and start the conversation with your family and friends about how you can teach the next generation about wealth building.
