    "Learning Financial Literacy" with Entrepreneur & Best-Selling Author Paige Cornetet

    "Learning Financial Literacy" with Entrepreneur & Best-Selling Author Paige Cornetet

    Paige Cornetet is the bestselling author of the Spend-Then series, a collection of children’s books teaching financial literacy by simplifying traditionally complicated concepts. A forward-thinking entrepreneur, Paige founded Millennial Guru at the age of twenty-six to provide companies like Kroger and Capital One with business coaching and strength-based team-building workshops.
    Paige, the eldest of four, is passionate about helping parents teach children imperative life skills and financial management techniques. She lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with her husband.

    About My Dad's Class
    As a parent, it's easy to feel insecure. What vital knowledge from your childhood should you pass on to your kids? How do you teach the importance of kindness and respect? When do you introduce the concept of money? How are you intentional with the lessons you impart?
    For Paige Cornetet and her three siblings, a childhood designed by their dad was a series of educational experiences woven into family activities. From investing in McDonald's as a stock market activity to using chore assignments as an opportunity for negotiation, the Cornetet kids gained insight into important subjects at an early age.
    Now, in My Dad's Class, Paige shares the strategies and principles her dad used to lay the groundwork for a happy, successful life. Told from the child's perspective, this is a parenting book unlike any other. Paige shows you how to get creative with tactics you're already using and customize a plan that works for your family.
    Parenting isn't always easy, but that doesn't mean it has to be hard. With daily, weekly, and monthly ideas you can use immediately, My Dad's Class is the simple framework you've been looking for to parent with intention and provide you with peace of mind.

Must Listen

In an age of division, what a breath of fresh air this podcast is. Nothing more important than fostering and nourishing a community of like minds and empowerment to be productive and creative. Deb Bailey is a great host and I look forward to more shows.

Eva Jannotta ,

Highly recommend!

I love Deborah’s emphasis on building community, bolstering women’s economic power, and helping women entrepreneurs succeed. She selects great guests (I learned of her through Eleanor Beaton!), and her background as a published fiction and nonfiction author is especially appealing. I’m an avid reader, and the fact that Deborah brings that perspective resonates with me. The conversations Coach Deb’s hosting about staying motivated and connected to one’s passion are so important. Highly recommend!

KServi ,

Love this Podcast!

I recently listened to the episode with Nancy McKay. Hearing her past, what she went though and her vulnerabilty was so refreshing to hear. She's absolutely right, the thoughts in our head become our reality. This was a wonderful interview, Deborah. Thank you for putting this out!
