Past Due: Radio 156 – Mother’s Day: My Mom the Money Maestro
Send me your feedback or leave me a voice mail: (919) 374-0501
This is a special Mother’s Day edition of Past Due Radio! In an effort to honor the moms out there, I decided to honor my mother by sharing a few stories of how she taught me plenty about life and money during my childhood.
From the time when I couldn’t sleep through the night (there was a five foot tall banana in my closet that laughed at me…), and how she developed a reward system to help me stay in bed; to the amazing big boy bicycle I wanted at age nine and her response to how I could earn it (hint: I’m an incredible weed puller to this day); all the way to the car accident in my senior year of high school and how she helped me help myself in paying for the damages, my mother knew what she was doing.
Kids & Money Contest: I’m looking for stories of parents teaching their kids about managing money and understanding how money works. If you have a great story (humorous, big life lesson, etc) of what to do – even what not to do – please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Kids Money Content” in the subject line. Entries will be gathered for the next few weeks and the winner will receive Junior’s Adventures, the boxed set of money lessons for children by Dave Ramsey, and a copy of my book, Get Naked: Stripping Down to Money & Marriage.
If you have a specific question, I’d be happy to answer it and further cultivate the wisdom of the Past Due Radio masses. The experiences of our listener base provide plenty of insight we all can learn from; don’t hesitate to ask – I’m happy to help!
