I had to learn about finances when I was already in college. I think that I learned about investments only when I entered the banking industry. I never really thought about learning more about investing or saving up for the future until I was 25. But gone are those days. People, even kids now, are different. As early as 7 or 8, kids know the concept of “interest”.

This is good actually! For those who need help teaching their kids to become money smart, Manila Workshops under the Ready to be Rich workshop series will hold a rerun of the Money Smart Kids Workshop on April 27!
