African Wealth Little Money Bird
Have you asked yourself why financial literacy is not taught in school? Are your children learning about all they need for money to make a better financial decision in the future? What money values are you teaching at home? Are there any practical measures at home to ensure that your children have a day to day activities on money and business that will give them a head start in their financial future? What investments are your children involved in? These are the questions that the author seeks to address in this book.
As the author of the bestselling African Wealth Paradigm Shift, a book on personal finance and business with selling in Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, and Tanzania, Kgopa was frequently told, “I wish I read your book when I was young.” This book is then a response to that wish.
This practical money and business book is written for African parents who are ready to take steps in ensuring their young once learn about money and financial literacy from as early as 6 years of age. Included in the book is the collection of coins by parents, incentives on chores for children, exploiting the power of compound interest and getting children to learn from it by investing in bonds, and lastly getting the children to invest in stocks as minors. Another important element of the book includes learning about cryptocurrencies which is arguably the future of money. There is a parental guide in the book to help the parents to help the children along on their financial literacy journey.
