Episode 20: Allowance, Chores and How to talk to our kids about money - A REAL Convo with Colin Ryan

In this episode, I have a conversation with author and speaker, Colin Ryan. Colin travels around the country speaking to college students about money. Can you believe they actually have a good time while learning about money?!? I picked Colin’s brain about his views and suggestions re: the pressure we face as parents in terms of raising kids that will go out to responsibly earn in the world. Colin really has his finger on the pulse of productively speaking to young people about money and setting them up for success. His book is called A Comedic Guide to Money.
