Want to become smarter with your money? Mentor someone else.
Ted Gonder was a student at the University of Chicago when he and his friends decided to teach financial education to the kids living in the neighborhoods of the south side of Chicago. Once they saw positive results, they began setting up formal programs to help teach kids about money. As they saw great results, Moneythink was born, and Ted became the first CEO of the non-profit. Fast forward a few years and now they’re not only working on technology to help their growing student relationships, but he’s also working with the President of the United States and the Department of Education to create better opportunities for his mentorships. It’s an idea that’s picking up steam.
Today’s interview raises some great points. What are YOU doing to help educate those around you? How are YOU working in your community to help raise the level of discussions about finance. This is an inspirational interview that’ll have you ready to jump in and get working!
