Discussing finances can be intimidating, especially for beginners. However, initiating regular money conversations early on can be a great way to introduce the topic and potentially set yourself up for financial success. In today’s roundtable, we welcome Dan Sheeks, author of the new hit book, First to a Million: A Beginner’s Guide to Achieving Early Financial Independence, Katie Brewer, a certified financial planner and professional money teacher, and OG, our in-house money expert and father of three. They will discuss the importance of having money conversations and provide tips on how to set yourself up for a life of financial abundance.
But wait! There’s more! Doug will try to stump our panel with some this-day-in-history-based trivia. It’s a tie ballgame in our year-long competition; who will pull ahead?

So glad to hear Joe and Katie talk about their positive experience with Junior Achievement. I’m a long time volunteer and recognize the value of the hands on learning that JA uses in the classroom.
