NEED YOUR HELP - Writing A High School Money Book - Part 5

May 28th, 2009 at 05:30 am

I announced http://iwasbroke.savingadvice.com/2009/05/20/need-your-help-... that I am in the process of writing my next book. It will be a book that is addressed to high school students, and I am sharing 12 Things I Wish I Had Learned About Money Before I Hit The Real World.

That is not necessarily the title, and it might end up being 10 things or 15 things. All I know is that I want (and need) your help in writing this book!

For the next few days, I am going to ask you to take a couple minutes of your time and share some things you wish you would have learned about specific money topics.

Part Four Financial Decision-Making

Here is the question that I want to hear your thoughts on today:

What is the worst financial decision you have ever made? What led to that decision? How would you teach young people to avoid that type of decision?

NEED YOUR HELP - Writing A High School Money Book - Part 1

I do not know what the title will be yet, but it will be something like:

12 Things I Wish I Had Learned About Money Before I Hit The Real World

It is our passion to help others accomplish far more than they ever thought possible with their personal finances. In http://nextsteps.iwasbrokenowimnot.com/all-iwbnin-resources/ (and its related http://groupstudy.iwasbrokenowimnot.com), I told my story of walking out of financial disarray, and I teach the tools we used to become debt-free. It is mostly focused on providing a CURE for an existing negative financial situation.

In this new resource, we are focusing on PREVENTION of negative financial situations. I know that I went through twenty years of formal education (13 years of K-12, 4 years of undergrad, 3 years of grad) and I had exactly zero classes on personal finances. It is my hope that we can provide a resource that can be utilized in schools and in churches to teach high school students how to manage their financial resources well.

I need your stories! For the next five days, I will be asking a series of questions about what you think teenagers need to know about money before they hit the real world.
