Welcome to Creative Wealth International
Are you looking for a financial literacy education curriculum, camp or youth and adult program that's unique and different? One that's effective (i.e., students remember the information so they can use it later), one that's FUN and doesn't revolve around worksheets and lectures? A personal finance program that's interactive, experiential and makes you laugh so hard your face hurts sometimes?
Are you looking for a financial education program that includes more than saving, budgeting and how to have a great credit score so you can use other people's money to buy Piddlyjunk (we call this Bad Debt!)? Maybe it includes how to shake hands, how to catch yourself judging others by the amount of money someone's earning or what type of car they drive and even explores the common financial beliefs that keep us from ever having the money we need and want in life?
Perhaps you're looking for a financial literacy program that includes investing in real estate, business and the stock market in ways that others don't talk about? What if it included 30 really powerful financial principles that students could easily memorize because they're saying them all day long. Heck, what if it included a list of financial habits taught in a way that were so easy to remember and taught in such a profound way that students of all ages couldn't forget them?
What if it included the most important, time-tested financial principle and habit of all times...the principle that all financially free people use to get, and stay, financially free? What principle is that? It's Pay Yourself First!
If you're looking for something different, and better, we're glad you stumbled upon the world of Creative Wealth International.
Here's a question for you...
Where did YOU learn about money? At home? In school? Thought the school of hard financial knocks? Ouch...if this is you, you are certainly NOT alone. Most of us learned this way and we shouldn't have to.
Chances are, like most adults on the planet, you didn't learn about money in school
or at home...most of us didn't.
AND chances are,
you want to help change this!
"Creative Wealth International’s mission is to empower people to achieve a life of
financial independence, philanthropy and gratitude."
Teaching kids, teens and adults about money and investing isn't just important, it's critical to a nation's economic health...and important for the health and well-being of every person on the planet and yet we don't teach it the way it should be taught. Most financial education programs are boring and they are missing two of the most important aspects of growing up financially responsible, secure and most importantly, independent!
Those two missing pieces are Investing and Entrepreneurship. For the most part, we're still pigeon-holing our children into following in the standard path of growing up, choosing a type of job so they can 'be a fireman' or 'be a doctor' rather than 'be an honest person' or 'be a generous person' and 'be a person who learns how to take their unique gifts and prosper from sharing them with the world.
One of our favorite mentors, Zig Ziglar, said...
"You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want."
There are so many ways to grow up and live your purpose which is to be of service (ask most adults...we've figured out that the thing that brings us the most joy and satisfaction is to help others in some way). We teach this important principle in all of our programs.
So...if you are searching for the Most Profoundly Unique and Effective Way to Teach Financial Literacy...you found it.
Presenting Camp Millionaire, Moving Out! for Teen, The Money Game, Creative Cash for Kids, Celebrating Women and Wealth...our intensely unique financial education programs that work.
We know how to teach kids, teens and adults about
money and investing and we do it by making financial education fun and relevant to our participants,
not by using a boring curriculum no one can relate to.
How do we do this? All of our financial literacy programs are activity based and use our proprietary financial education game called, yup, you guessed it, The Money Game, a revolutionary new financial literacy game that's changing the way human beings learn about money.

p.s. My personal mission is the invite every person I touch to 'think' differently about money and wealth. If we're going to affect change in how our nation's citizens handle money, we must start with the way we think about money and wealth. From there, change happens natually and financial responsibility at all levels follows.
