What is taught in the game?

In the Money Mavericks game, your teen will understand:

Happiness - A clear understanding of what he’s motivated by in the short and long term

Income - How to project and plan for upcoming income, even if it’s irregular

Spending - Where he wants each future dollar to go, in order to achieve maximum happiness. These include: Fixed expenses, Discretionary expenses, Short term savings, Long term savings, and Debt reduction

Control - The game provides various opportunities to show him how to follow-through and maintain control of impulse spending.

Surprises - Life happens and there are several teaching moments where your child will have to adjust her plan, based on emergencies, new priorities, and temptations to spend. This exposure to situations to which she’ll be able to relate will plant the seed for how to manage curveballs when they arise in real life. The idea is to expose her to these emotions and scenarios now, so she’ll choose a better course of action in real life.

Your child is exposed to the idea of multiple streams of income, as it can become a critical component to financial independence. This is done through the introduction to entrepreneurship, where the player has the opportunity to start a blogging business based on something he is passionate about. The focus isn’t on writing, but rather helping him connect the idea of generating income by focusing his talents where his passion lies. The game helps the player learn the elements of a business, how they relate to personal finances and balance with his life goals. Concepts he will learn include but aren’t limited to;

Setting a business budget

Juggling work, life, and business time

Marketing Opportunity Cost

Irregular Income

Scaling a Business
