    • MoneyBags E-Book – The Joy of Delayed Gratification Strikes Again!

      Leave a Comment

      After much delay, MoneyBags has entered the 21st century!!!!

      I am most excited to tell you that it is official, you can now buy “MoneyBags: A Guide to Teaching Your Kids About Money” as an EBook for $9.99! As a person from the “old school,” I have always enjoyed holding and reading a physical book.  However, I am surprised that I really like the EBook too.

      I found the whole process rather easy. I made MoneyBags my first purchase (of course) and I am impressed at how crisp and easy it is to read.  Furthermore, I like that you simply swipe to turn a page and that there are hyperlinks take you to the chapter or website with a simple click.  You can navigate back and forth to different chapters via the table on contents.  Plus, I can also change the font style, font size, line spacing, background color, margins, and brightness for my desired reading pleasure.

      Furthermore, most people carry their electric devices everywhere, so now it is super easy to walk through a quick chapter with your kids when you are waiting at the airport, on a long car ride, or simply waiting for you meal at a restaurant.

      For your MoneyBags Mission, please take a peek at the new EBook, rate it in the “Before You Go” section, and tell a friend!

    • MoneyBags hits the airways on KDWB’s The Dave Ryan in the Morning Show!

      Leave a Comment

      Earlier this month, MoneyBags was the subject to an “un-boxing” on KDWB’s The Dave Ryan in the Morning Show.  If you missed the segment, never fear, you can see the video at the following link.  Just click the little picture of Dave below and hit the “play” triangle to start the video.

      We just loved how Dave called out several chapters of the book on air and really understood the importance of the chapter on Delayed Gratification.  Big thanks go out to Dave and the team at KDWB for recommending MoneyBags: A Guide To Teaching Your Kids About Money.

      Wendy did appear on the Miller in The Morning Show to discuss MoneyBags, but sadly the audio for the show was lost.  Instead, here is a picture of Wendy getting ready for her on air debut.  We hope you enjoy!
