The man who acquires the ability to take full possession of his own mind may take possession of anything else to which he justly entitled.” -Andrew Carnegie

Prevent financial illiteracy:  1.  “Our kids must know that they are not entitled to money or wealth…or anything for that matter, even Christmas presents.  They must earn money.”  2.  “Our children need to understand debt.  Debt is expensive.  If you abuse it, it will destroy you.  It robs you of your independence.”  3.  “Our kids need to learn the power of compound interest and the best way to harness it.  Compound interest is the most powerful force in finance.  And it’s mathematically guaranteed.” -Tom Dyson
