#46: Smart Money Smart Kids w/ Rachel Cruze

These days you can’t Google the words “financial literacy” without coming across the name Dave Ramsey. As a well-known financial columnist, Ramsey is perhaps best known for his compelling rags to riches story and rules for financial independence which he shares with millions of people across the country every day.


Today on The Money JAR, Ramsey’s daughter, Rachel Cruze gives listeners the inside scoop on what it was like to grow up with one of the most well-known financial gurus of our time, and shares practical tips on beginning a dialog with your children about money. Cruze recently co-authored a book with her father titled Smart Money Smart Kids, and she currently travels the country speaking to teens and parents on how to talk about personal financial responsibility.
