Dismal State Of High School Financial Education

• 41 min

A high school teacher reveals the sad state of financial education today.  Most students still think the path is: go to school, get good grades, go to college, get a job, work until you’re 65, and then start enjoying life.  Dan Sheeks is a Denver, Colorado-based high school teacher and real estate investor.  He enjoys working with teenagers. He also volunteers for the Colorado Attorney General to advance financial education.   Just last month, Dan released a book with Bigger Pockets: “First to a Million: A Teenager’s Guide to Achieving Early Financial Independence”. See it here. He discusses solutions for teenage financial independence:  1) When you turn 18, get your first credit card  2) “House hack” real estate by age 21 3) Good debt vs. bad debt - do teens understand? 4) Mindset 5) Avoiding mistakes like “meme coins” 6) Saving Dan tells us the two main reasons why there’s a pathetic lack of financial education in school today - funding and politics.   Resources mentioned: Show Notes: If you have a child, get Dan’s book: First to a Million: A Teenager’s Guide to Achieving Early Financial Independence Dan Sheeks’ online community for young people: Dan Sheeks’ e-mail (It’s OK to message him): To learn more about eQRPs: text “EQRP” in ALL CAPS to 72000 or: By texting “EQRP” to 72000 and opting in, you will receive periodic marketing messages from eQRP Co.
