Discovering what life is about

Financial Literacy Cartoon for Kids

 

Secret Millionaires Club (SMC) is an animated series about a group of kids learning how to make good financial decisions and solve business problems. Episodes are available online for free. Their mentor is none other than Warren Buffett! Here’s part of a Reuters interview with Buffett regarding his involvement.

 

 


 

Q. How do financial literacy and entrepreneurship fit together?

 

A. Not everybody’s going to be an entrepreneur, but everybody should be financially literate. Financial literacy is a base requirement like spelling or reading or something of the sort that everybody should acquire at any early age. The financial habits you develop when you are young are going to go with you into your adulthood. But you can’t be an entrepreneur unless you’re financially literate.

 

 


 

They also run the annual Grow Your Own Business Challenge (GYOB), a nationwide contest for entrepreneurial kids aged 7 to 14. This year’s finalists included an intergenerational online community, a custom bow tie business, a worm composting kit, and a community garden that also helps feed hungry children. You can watch their pitch videos on YouTube.

 

After watching a few episodes, they are actually pretty good. The concepts are short (~5 minutes long) and digestible.

Secret Millionaires Club. Warren Buffett's 26 Secrets to Success in the Business of Life

 

Description: Priceless finance advice everyone can relate to from one of the world's most respected businessmen and the most successful investor of all time

Of course you know who Warren Buffett is; he's the most successful investor in the world—maybe of all times. But what do you know about his approach to business and investing? It's an approach that, over the past four decades, has made him richest man in America and the third-richest man in the world, and that has earned vast fortunes for his business partners and investors. But as Buffett himself will tell you, at the heart of any wealth-building system there are certain core beliefs, not just about finance, but about business, work, morality, your responsibility to yourself, your family and society, and about living a decent life. Written in conjunction with the hit television series, "Secret Millionaire Club" and with Buffett's input and

full support, this book makes Buffett's financial philosophy and homespun life lessons available to everyone outside his "Secret Club."

 

- Warren Buffet's goal in spearheading this book was to share lessons about personal finance he has learned and that he hopes will benefit you (and your kids) for a lifetime

- You'll learn the fundamentals of personal finance by reading Warren Buffett's war stories and personal reflections on money, life, business, ethics and more

- All of the finance principles covered in the book were personally approved by Warren Buffett as those which he himself follows

- Unforgettable Buffett quotes include: "Price is what you pay. Value is what you get"; "Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing"; and "Profit from folly rather than participate in it."
