We are a family and team with a vision of the future.
We want to stop the perpetuation of generational poverty.
We think it would be great for other families to help their children get a head start in money matters which in turn will develop financial responsible adults.
We greatly appreciate your interest in our home-school project My Money Diary.
Your contributions will help us purchase the necessary materials and equipment to make the diaries/books but most importantly your contributions will help us create micro business grants for youth entrepreneurs.
My Money Diary will help children see their spending habits.
We're creating this book as a simple way of keeping a handwritten journal allowing children to see all the money that comes in, where it comes from, where they spent their money and why they spent it.
When we teach children about financial matters early it will give them a head start at being financial responsible adults.
My Money Diary will help youths learn concepts to build wealth and control their financial futures.
All of the My Money Diary's are hand made and all of the covers will be original designs.
When we get enough interest in the My Money Diary's we will sell them publicly- adding them to our business venture.
We are also offering investment packages in a few of the perk levels. Keep reading to learn more.
- This Indiegogo Project will enable us to create the micro business grants for youth entrepreneurs and make the diary available to you plus the investment package. That's pretty cool, so thanks!
Please commit to helping us reach our goal of $550 to complete our project and create micro business grants for entrepreneurs.
Most of the money raised by this project will go into applying for a trademark, copyright, and the perks (getting you all the book and other fun stuff).
More than anything we want to know there's some demand for the book before we invest the time and effort in making more.
- We're trying to keep all our reward levels low so you can get at least one of the My Money Diary's. You'll get the book cheaper now than when we release it to the public (remember that shipping is included!).
When the project is over, any extra money (after fulfilling all the perks and paying for everything) will go to;
- purchasing more homeschooling material and equipment (inluding a computer for my children),
- expanding my children's business,
- CREATING micro grants for other youth entrepreneurs.
My Children and I agreed (concededly) that creating micro business grants for other youth entrpreneurs would be better than them buying more toys.

*The Money Diary
The Money Diary will help children GET IN THE HABIT of logging their money entries reminding them to always date their entries, so they can see how often they spend. The categories listed below will give you an idea of some headings they might use in their diary. One heading is “cash I spent and I have no record.” They can make note of cash they cannot track. Over time this should happen less often when they practice THE HABIT of SAVING, keeping receipts and keeping their diary updated.
The youth can have some fun with this. Like make notes to themselves. If they spent money on a movie, they can write a short review. What did they think of the new video game they bought last month? When they put some money they earned babysitting or from their *bubblegum candy vending machine into the *piggy bank account, what are they saving for, investing in, giving to a charity, or going to buy next?
*The Piggy Bank and the 10/10/10/70 Concept
It is very important to give children some guidance about how they might use whatever monies they earn now and in the future. An idea for helping children build wealth and control their financial destinies is - for every dollar they earn, have your children:
GIVE - 10% to a charity of their choice
INVEST – 10% to build their fortunes
SAVE – 10% for the future, and
SPEND – 70% for everyday expenses.
This basic concept can begin to be taught to your children very early in life. The piggy bank we offer have four compartments for each purpose, as mentioned above. With whatever dollars they earn, distribute the coins into the separate compartment as the 10/10/10/70 ratio indicates.
*The Gumball Candy Vending Machine
(an asset that has the potential to generate passive income)
Teach the children to make money work for them instead of them always working for money. Instead of feeding into your child's "I want's" and "Gimme's" show them how a simple investment can give them great returns, a investment that has the ability to buy what they want instead of always having to come out of their pockets or your pockets. It is also important to allow children to experience their lessons. The gumball vending machine can be used as a teaching aide as well as a means to have a stream of their own passive income. When the vending machince is placed in a high traffic business it has the potential of generating at least $150 a week!
