Raising Financially Responsible Kids

Raising Financially Responsible Kids

Money is a generational issue. Most of us weren’t taught it, our parents weren’t taught it, and our grandparents weren’t taught it. Unless we break the pattern, our kids will have the same issues, overspending on credit cards and not investing enough to provide a secure future.

What lessons are you teaching your kids about money?

What about personal accountability, savings, and investing?

How do they see you spend money?

There is a balance between money management and enjoying life. We don’t have to teach a scarcity mindset for our kids to be money smart.

Today we talk to a special guest who tells us his dad’s approach to raising financially responsible kids and how it made him leagues ahead of his peers of the same age.

Side Hustle in Real Estate

4 Key Elements to a Side Hustle in Real Estate with Billy Keels


What if you didn’t have to do the 9-to-5 thing any longer? What would your life be like if you were the owner of your time? What would it be like to be with your wife and kids as much as you wanted?

As fathers, we’re always looking for ways we can provide a better lifestyle for our families. Today, author and real estate genius Billy Keels tells us how we can break the golden handcuffs with a side hustle in real estate, even if we’re starting out with next to nothing.

Billy Keels

Billy Keels has been married for almost ten years and is the father of two sons that are 6 and 8 years old. He currently lives in Barcelona, Spain and has traveled through more than 58 countries as part of his corporate job. Billy makes a great living, and he worked hard to put money into his 401K and IRA. So he felt helpless when he watched the fluctuations and crashes in the market.

He read the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad and decided he would need to try something different to get different results. The ideas were contrary to everything he was taught, but they made sense and this inspired him to put them into practice.

Billy wanted to take more control of his financial future and had a dream of building a real-estate empire.  He still maintains his corporate job, but after buying his first property 18 months ago, he now owns 27 and plans to own 300 by 2019!

How to Pay Off Debt and Create Financial Security for Your Family with Jeff Bouwman

60% of parents have at least three forms of debt with the average household debt being around $33,000. Do you fall into this bracket? How do you get out?

Jeff Bouwman is a CPA. financial advisor, a husband and a dad to three little girls. He has just released his book, Your Income, Your Life and is on The Good Dad Project to tell us his experience of achieving what most Americans would consider a successful life, but was, in reality, a stressful financial black hole. Listen to how he got out of debt, quit his corporate job, and now enjoys the life he was truly meant to live.

What appears to be success from the outside is not necessarily a happy life on the inside. Jeff Bouwman spent most of his life following the path he thought he was supposed to take. He excelled at school, graduated from college, and worked hard to provide for his family. Jeff earned more and more money each time he moved up the corporate ladder. He also spent more and more money, buying stuff to fill a void that could never be filled. When he and his wife started a family, they built their dream home and racked up a 100 K debt.

Jeff was unhappy and full of anxiety. He felt pressured to work harder and would put in 60-70 hours per week to maintain the lifestyle he and his family had become accustomed to. He was rarely home with them, and when he was home, he was not emotionally or mentally present. When he was at work he felt guilty for not being with his family. When he was with his family, he felt guilty for missing work.

One night, for the first time in their whole marriage, he and his wife finally sat down to talk about money. They reviewed their family budget and discovered where they were throwing money away. They made some changes to the way the spent and saved money and reduced the cost of their lifestyle. Jeff noticed that because they worked on it together, the budget didn’t feel like much of a sacrifice.

With a little discipline, they saved thousands in payments and interest and paid off 75% of their debt in less than a year. They also began an emergency fund, which allowed Jeff to free himself from his demanding job and take 9 months off to be with his family.

Jeff Bouwman now works for 50% less income, but is happier and gets to spend time with his daughters every day. He discovered that consciously managing money as a team brought his family closer. His book, Your Income, Your Life, shows you how to define how much money you truly need to live the life you want, how money is about choice, and that money can be a catalyst to improving your relationship with your family.

Jeff’s Amazing Offer

Jeff is committed to helping other families get out of the same financial trap he was in, and is so intent on his mission, he’s giving away copies of Your Income, Your Life to anyone who wants one. Send an email to jeff@yourincomeyourlife.com and he will send you a FREE digital copy of his new book!
