382: Dismal State of High School Financial Situation

Happy New Fear - RV Ratios, Property & Crypto Taxes with Tom Wheelwright

A high school teacher reveals the sad state of financial education today.

Most students still think the path is: go to school, get good grades, go to college, get a job, work until you’re 65, and then start enjoying life.

Dan Sheeks is a Denver, Colorado-based high school teacher and real estate investor.

He enjoys working with teenagers. He also volunteers for the Colorado Attorney General to advance financial education.

Just last month, Dan released a book with Bigger Pockets: “First to a Million: A Teenager’s Guide to Achieving Early Financial Independence”. See it here.

He discusses solutions for teenage financial independence:

1) When you turn 18, get your first credit card

2) “House hack” real estate by age 21

3) Good debt vs. bad debt – do teens understand?

4) Mindset

5) Avoiding mistakes like “meme coins”

6) Saving

Dan tells us the two main reasons why there’s a pathetic lack of financial education in school today – funding and politics.
