Delighted that I have been invited back to continue working with the Young & Rising Moguls at Worldofmoney.org, on November 9, 2013, to teach at Lincoln Center, NYC.

My Young & Rising Mogul classes will first attend a jazz concert to benefit worldofmoney.org before heading to my financial literacy class.

The lesson will focus on investing and the stock market. The teaching tools will be fun, engaging and relevant.  We will combine different ages so that the younger and older students can work together.

My focus will include teaching children the language of the stock market, stocks, bonds, mutual funds and why investment is a key part of money management.

These will be returning students who are always encouraged to expand their thinking about money. “Don’t be afraid of words you don’t know! Ask questions and learn.”

The Socratic method of asking questions is used to open the mind as part of child development and good money management in my classes.

The mission is to provide financial literacy to encourage children to think about investing and using money to make money.

The children will learn how to find the ticker symbol for their favorite companies and how the stock has performed over the past few years and think about invest for the future – financially, of course!

I’ll bring my money balls and some other bells and whistles that brand my financial literacy for YOU(th) classes. What child would not want to have some fun bouncing a ball in class? The money balls will help to demonstrate stock fluctuation, volatility, initial public offerings, splits and we can talk about FaceBook, Twitter and all kinds of fun stuff that explain the world and how to walk in it.

Saturday, November 9th at Lincoln Center, Candi Sparks, the Dean Of Young & Rising Moguls will be there with bells on!
