My Interview at Tackling Our Debt

Interview at Tackling Our Debt

I recently chatted with my good friend, Sicorra from Tackling Our Debt about children and money. In my interview, I share my thoughts on why parents need to be good financial role models and how to talk to your kids about money. You can read the full interview here.

Financial literacy is my passion, and it is my mission to help parents teach their children how to make value-based money decisions. It is a honor to share my knowledge and passion with others, and I appreciate the opportunity to do so via Tackling Our Debt.


The Heavy Purse Store is now open! My new downloadable Money Club Workbooks are now on sale. Each workbook provides five targeted lessons to help you raise Financially Confident Kids. Please check them out in The Heavy Purse Store.

    Very interesting interview. With 3 young kids I am always looking for money lessons to teach them. Your book looks great!

      Thanks Kyle. Our kids are always watching us, so it's critical to demonstrate good financial behavior. They see more than we think. :D

    I really enjoyed your interview with Sicorra. I think it's never too early to start teaching our kids about finance.

      Thank you, Kim! I'm glad you enjoyed the interview. And I couldn't agree more - the earlier we start teaching our children about money - the better!
