“Through interactive games, videos, challenges,
and group discussions, my kids learned about
money in a way they could understand, relate to,
and practically apply. I was shocked by the depth
of conversations it sparked between us.”
~ Michelle, a mother
from Baltimore, MD.
"No one gave me the skills to make smart money
choices. I took a dierent online course and I could
connect or relate to the people trying to teach. It was
all outdated and stale. Money Club was fresh and I love
that it is constantly being added to."
~ Kevin, a father
from Philadelphia, PA.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if this is right for my family?
If you’ve found yourself wanting to have the conversation of money, self-worth, overspending, credit, investing, careers and all those other money intricacies but are not sure where to start, this might be for you.
If you are noticing the sweeping trends of overindulgence, marketing to younger audiences, a numbness to debt, and a lack of mindfulness with our money, than this is definitely for you.
If you are mindful of the way in which you grew up using money, and feel that because of your lack of financial education you made money decisions that you wish you could go back and fix, then this education is most certainly for you and your family.
We spent a lot of time listening and creating the conversations we wish our parents, peers, teachers and friends would have had when it comes to money. Money Club is for those of you that feel that the way the world is changing with usage of technology and money requires a new type of conversation; one that has less to do with the optimization of your rate of return and more about how you develop financial and emotional independence and stability in radically changing times.
Won’t they get this somewhere else?
We hope so, but the reality is, it’s unlikely. We’ve seen a lot of ‘financial education’ come and go – but it’s all focused on the mechanics of money, rather than the behaviors and habits that we develop that ultimately doom us.
More importantly, the question is when – when will they learn it? Will they come to the epiphany after hundreds of thousands of credit card debt? Or will they look to get more formally educated after they spiral into credit card debt that is sweeping through young adults and families? Or will they get this at home on your time and your dime?
The most important thing to us is that they learn about this subject early, not only so they avoid mistakes, but so they make decisions that are in line with their values and long term goals. Money Club is designed to be a meaningful learning path and community so that they can develop their own way forward with the support of a network of like-minded people encouraging their independence.
How is this different from other Financial Literacy providers?
What has been doesn't work.
Money is emotional. We purchase, save and invest with our feelings, not our logic, so we’ve got to approach learning about money as if it’s personal. If you weren’t able to get through to your kid, maybe you were going at the problem like everyone else – as if they don’t have their own personality and feelings that are driving their view of money.
No matter where you are on the financial thermometer, you want the best for your kids and want to help them develop a healthy relationship with money. If that’s the goal, talking about interest rates will never get their attention off of their phone. It’s a never ending conversation, but it has to be on their terms.
Our main goal is to put money lessons into a way a young adult can enjoy and relate to. The way people are learning about money is boring, impersonal and impractical. Learning about choosing a career, building a business, or creating a healthy, successful lifestyle should be FUN! That’s how positive habits and values will take hold in their lives and carry them into financial independence as an adult.

• Give your young adult assessments and tools to understand their own values
• Introduce topics like money attitude, earning more, spending less, budgeting, investing in education,
paychecks, taxes, banking basics and more.
