Change your mind about money with Crystal McLean
This week we are speaking with Crystal McLean, an author that is dedicating her talents to teaching children financial literacy. There is a saying that the rich get richer, that's because they look at money differently. Crystal says that in order to break generational financial disparity, you need to start teaching children about money when they are young, and do it in such a way that it's fun to learn and easy to understand. It removes the fear and intimation out of money. Children grow into adults knowing that they can control their finances, not the other way around. Check out her book "Harmoney and the Empty Piggy Bank" https://www.authorcrystalmclean.com/
