Here it is! I mentioned last week that we had launched the next phase of our business. Here’s the newest place to find me writing about money. And this isn’t just any money, it’s Kids & Money!
I joined About.com as the Kids & Money Guide focused on teaching children about money management.
What better way to combine two of my favorite topics – parenting and finance – into one? If you are a parent or grandparent, it should be a great resource for you.
Kids & Money Articles
Here’s a sample of some of the articles I’ve written:
I’ll highlight articles here that you might enjoy from the Kids & Money site; otherwise, feel free to visit me at About.com!
Small Business Launch
Back in February, I made a goal of expanding our business beyond My Dollar Plan in the results of my Stay Home or Go Back to Work Decision. I’m pleased that I met that goal just a quick four months later.
With the addition of About.com to our business plan, we’ve completed the first two phases. We have plans for two more, but between My Dollar Plan, About.com and freelance work with Mint, I’m pretty much exhausted. (Don’t forget to count the kids, my husband, and my day job in there too!) It might be time for me to revisit my Life Mix Pie Chart.

Hey, congrats! Now we can be about.com buddies 😀
Congrats on the new gig! How much of a time commitment do you think the new about.com site will require?
Great to see a site on kids and money.With kids business knowledge coming from trial and error any early training is welcome
Wow! About.com? I’m going to have to check this out. Congrats on the new venture. 😉
There is a definite need for information for kids about money. A book I read about starting my own business (written for kids) called Making Cents is among my favorites from childhood. I’ll bookmark your site and check it often.
@ Jeremy: Thanks, I’m excited to join the group!
@ MDJ: I’m not sure yet, but I’m guessing I’ll be spending more than 20 hours a week with about.com and My Dollar Plan put together. I’ll let you know once I get into a groove.
@ Steve: You are right, it seems trial and error is the most common way kids are learning financial concepts. Hopefully it will make a difference for some families.
@ Marc: Thanks!! And yes, be sure to check it out!
@ Nicole: Thanks for the recommendation on the book, I’ll be sure to check it out!
