In the Money Mavericks game, your teen will learn:

  • Happiness - A clear understanding of what they are motivated by in the short and long term
  • Income - How to project and plan for upcoming income, even if it’s irregular

  • Surprises - Life happens and there are several teaching moments where your child will have to adjust their plan, based on emergencies, new priorities, and temptations to spend. This exposure to situations to which they’ll be able to relate will plant the seed for how to manage curve balls when they arise in real life. 
  • Entrepreneurship - Start and manage a blogging business that connects the idea of generating income from existing talents and passions. Learn the elements of owning a business, how they relate to personal finances and balance with his life goals.
