  1. Happy Friday! Not that the days are the week really matter to you much any more. 🙂 Looking forward to Monday’s post. I’ve been preaching this topic for awhile now and I’ve been working with my local school district to try and make a change.

    1. Amen to that, Brian – thanks for reading; there is a LOT to be done in our schools to better prepare our kids for the realities of life.

  2. Great roundup as always Steve! I enjoyed Matt at The Resume Gap’s take on how he decided to move away from his “side hustle”. It was interesting getting in the thought process of something like that! Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Hey, Steve. Awesome roundup as usual. I look forward to these weekend reads. I also look forward to hearing what every school should be teaching our children. My guess it’s programming. And I only say this because I have done far more coding in my adult life than calculus. I think the last time I used differential calculus to solve a problem was in 1980.

    1. Thanks Mr. Groovy! Actually, nothing programming-related. I’m getting even more basic than that, and skills that will directly help combat one of the biggest problems that we have in this country – debt! 🙂

  4. Thank you for the mention Steve. I’ll be watching your blog a bit more closely, so I can get some more inspiration. And thank you for the Airstream advice – will save it for later, when the time comes! 🙂

  5. I taught a Personal Finance elective course for Middle School students. Students were assigned a yearly salary based upon their current GPA and were taught how to develop a budget based upon their income. It was an eye opener for my students to say the least when they saw what type of housing, food, entertainment and transportation they would be able to afford.

    1. Sounds like an excellent simulation to run, Paul! I’m sure that was a major eye-opening experience for those kids. Wish we got to do something like that while in school.
