Financial Prep 101: Simple Tips for the Next Generation 


… An Introduction for Teens and Young Adults to Financial Terms & Concepts and their Application for everyday life.

  • Written from a personal perspective, coupled with real-life friends/family/client financial experiences, Janis draws on her 30+ years of experience to present a creative resource for educators – traditional, private, and home-school – to employ when presenting students with the basic terms of:
  • Budgeting & Saving
  • Borrowing & Financing
  • Investing
  • Retirement Planning
  • Protection Strategies
  • The easy-to-read, activity-based content is designed to engage and promote students to use this workbook to learn about the Brave New World of Financial terms to encourage better personal fiscal money management and set the reader on a road of financial success throughout their lives.
  • An Uncommon, Story-based presentation style adds variety and interest to a subject that is often complicated and ignored – learning through someone else’s experience adds texture to the topic and enforces understanding.

Becoming Financially Strong is Hard Work.
