In today's BetterWealth episode, I had an extremely special guest on the show, Armita Hosseini, Founder and Executive Director at EmpowerEconan and author of Roadmap to Financial Literacy: An Introduction to Personal Finance For Teenagers. Armita is only 16 years old and one of the most articulate people I have spoken to about money. Listen as she talks about finding a book “Secrets of The Millionaire Mind” at 8 years old and discovering the world of finance and financial literacy which lead to a determination and desire to educate and inspire teens to financial success. Join me as Armita shares her story, her journey in authoring her book and the work she is currently doing to impact young teens in financial literacy. Listen as Armita shares two big habits she would share for financial success as delayed gratification and becoming a long term thinker. Armita also breaks down her book and the components. If you know someone young who would be inspired by Armita’s story and financial education make sure to check out her book: Roadmap to Financial Literacy: An Introduction to Personal Finance For Teenagers - https://amzn.to/3y1WpWQ (https://amzn.to/3y1WpWQ)
