Setting Teens Up for Financial Success as an Adult

Setting Teens Up for Financial Success as an Adult

  Parents want the best for their kids. Because of that, it’s a balancing act of helping them and helping them help themselves. That applies to finances too.   In this episode, I talk to Bobbi Rebell about how to set your teens and young adults up for financial success. Bobbi is a CFP® and the author of Launching Financial Grownups: Live Your Richest Life by Helping Your (Almost) Adult Kids Become Everyday Money Smart. She is a financial literacy advocate, the host of the Money Tips for Financial Grownups podcast, and the founder of Bobbi was previously a global business news anchor and personal finance columnist at Reuters and held various journalist positions at top news outlets, including CNBC, CNN, and PBS.   Bobbi shares what you can do now to help your kids be financially successful on their own. From budgeting and saving to understanding their first 401k, and homeownership Bobbi gives some practical steps on how to go about it.
