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?
5) Avoiding mistakes like “meme coins”
Dan tells us the two main reasons why there’s a pathetic lack of financial education in school today - funding and politics.
