ME: “If anyone can tell me what a stock is I’ll give you “$1000 right now.”
THEM: super excited but don’t know.
ME: “if anyone can tell me what a bond is I’ll give you $5000 right now.”
THEM: going crazy now but have no idea
ME: “ok tell me what passive income is and I’ll give you $10,000 right now!” (Also rubs money on their hands and in their faces)
THEM: absolutely losing their minds at this point but unfortunately were never taught these things.
OUTCOME: for the next 60 minutes there isn’t a group of people in the country who want to learn more about stocks and bonds than these 6-7th graders! I’ve been doing this for 18 years and it never gets old. Some of my mentees and students are working on wall street now or running their own businesses. 🙏🏾💰✊🏾
