WRITTEN FOR TEENS BY ALLI + SHELLY
Not Another Money Statistic
“A must-read money guide for any teen or high schooler!” Learn how to PREVENT financial mistakes that plague most adults. Learn how you can secure your financial future now, even if you don’t have a job yet.
High schoolers: ready for some scary stats? In November 2017, the US consumer debt total rose to $3.927 trillion. An estimated 73% of Americans will die with debt from their cars, houses, and credit cards (AKA consumer debt).
Yes, these statistics are TERRIFYING. We don’t want YOU to become another money statistic. Most high schools don’t teach personal finance. We learn calculus and the periodic table, but do not learn how to stay out of debt and how to create a budget. It’s shocking and why so many young adults like yourself sign their lives away with poor money decisions like overwhelming high-interest student loans and credit cards.
You might be thinking… “If I am in high school, I don’t need to worry about money yet…” and that couldn’t be further from the truth. Even if you’re not yet working, the earlier you start thinking about your finances and preparing, the better off you will be! When it comes to growing your money and creating a secure future, starting NOW is the way to go.
It doesn’t matter if you were prom king/queen or if you were the most popular person in high school: it won’t help you stay out of debt.
There are a million money books out there for personal finance, so why did we write one? Instead of fixing your money mistakes in your late-twenties, we want to help you PREVENT them!
WHO IS THIS BOOK FOR?
Loved it! Should be a graduation requirement for all high schoolers!
“Excellent read with easy to understand and valuable information for high schoolers and anyone looking for the necessary basics when it comes to money! All juniors and seniors in high school should be required to read this one. I’m in my mid 30s and even learned a few things! Can’t wait to see what the authors come out with next.”
