Money Lessons for Kids (with Sam X Renick)

He will share with us how to influence healthy money habits to set children up for future financial success. Sam is an award-winning financial educator, children’s author, songwriter, and entrepreneur. He is the driving force behind Sammy Rabbit and Sammy’s Dream Big financial literacy education strategy.
