No one is born making smart financial decisions.
Money has an enormous impact on our lives!
Yet it is missing from our education. Most of what we learn is from trial, and let's be honest, error.
What kids don't learn about money will significantly affect their opportunities, life outcomes, and levels of health and happiness. Look at these stats!
63% of millennials are financially dependent on their parents.
80% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck.
Millennials are making 20% less than their parents.
70% of students are stressed out about their finances.
"I don't want them to need to move back in after college!"
"I am afraid that my kids
don't understand the
profound impact money
decisions have on their lives."
"I want my children to be content
in their career, and to support
a family without having
too many burdens."
"I want my kid to know the
reality of debt, so he doesn't
have to feel the pain of it."
What if it was fun to develop financial intelligence!?
Money Club is an interactive online game, course, and community that engages young adults to develop their Financial Intelligence.
Money Club teaches vital financial concepts, vocabulary, and most importantly how one's mindset, habits, and decisions shape the future.
High energy videos help you develop a relationship with money and make learning feel like an open conversation.
Learning sinks in when you get hands-on, so we created special mobile games to assess your personality and activate you where you are.
