Recently I was fortunate enough to give a workshop where the purpose was to get people thinking about some financial concepts and to get them talking and thinking about how they view money so they can improve their own situations.
In our first blog, I wrote a story about the parent of a child wondering whether a Kindergarten curriculum is likely to have greater success getting their child into Harvard or Dartmouth. While the question was fairly ridiculous, in some ways it showed a thought process. The parent has a goal and wants to take the necessary steps to attain that goal. So while the parent has done things incorrectly in understanding the measures needed to attain that goal, what have they done right?
