Creative Wealth International
Creative Wealth International develops and delivers amazingly powerful financial education programs, curriculums, and products for kids and teens. Combining relevant, time-tested financial principles with the power of accelerated learning techniques, Camp Millionaire, Moving Out! for Teens and The Money Game have changed the face of financial education for teachers, financial advisors, youth group leaders, and anyone else wanting to teach financial education to kids and teens (and the adults who love them!).
Why and how we started teaching financial literacy education to kids, teens, and young adults, AND the teachers and parents who care about them.
Creative Wealth International began as an inspiration for Elisabeth Donati when she read Robert Kiyosaki’s book, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad“. Relating to her lack of financial education and parental guidance in the area of financial literacy, she began considering the possibility of developing summer programs for kids and teens that were both fun and educational, with the central theme surrounding the basic concepts and principles of money and investing that she never learned as a kid or young adult but wished she had.
In 2002, Elisabeth created a nonprofit called The Money Camp to teach kids and teens about money and train others how to do what she was doing. This worked great until she realized she wasn’t able to practice what she preached. With a nonprofit Company, she couldn’t create a business asset that would bring her passive income streams to become financially free and be able to work because she wanted to, not because she had to.
In 2006, Elisabeth shifted the structure of the company, Creative Wealth International, to create a for-profit company that did a whole lot of good and would help her create an asset that could provide income for as long as she wanted.
The first Money Camp for Kids
The first Money Camp for Kids (now called Camp Millionaire) was held in August 2002 in Santa Barbara, CA. We had 39 kids! What a start! We weren’t really sure what we were doing but evidently, we were doing something right because we still run into parents from that first camp who tell us it made a huge difference in their child’s future.
The summer of 2003 brought 4 camps, several additional kid’s programs (home school, after school, private programs) and several adult programs (corporate and individual). Evidently, we were onto something big.
Each year we just kept trying additional areas and held more camps…until we realized we couldn’t do it all.
In 2004, after getting tons of phone calls, emails and even letters from people asking us what we were doing, we created our first Train-the-Trainer. The rest is history!
“One of our goals is for your kids and teens to leave the programs so excited about what they just learned and experienced about money that they don’t stop talking about it on the way home!”
As we continue to grow by training others around the planet to do what we do here locally, our goal of having financial literacy camps and programs AROUND THE WORLD becomes more and more of a reality.
A little more about Creative Wealth International
CWI was owned and operated by Elisabeth Donati and her staff until March’22. Now Silvia Alambert Hala is the new owner and continues the legacy of Elisabeth. The company licenses Camp Millionaire and the rest of its financial literacy programs DOMESTICALLY and INTERNATIONALLY to others wishing to offer programs in their local communities. There is no licensing fee for those teaching in a school environment in the USA. Our goal is to continue developing effective products that teach financial education differently and effectively.
How can we become financially free by buying stuff that goes down in value? We can’t! That’s the point and that’s the cornerstone of what we teach. That and this one wonderfully powerful concept…by having more money coming in each month than you have going out, you can take the extra and do a whole lot of good in the world!
Want to know more? We’d love to talk to you. Call us at (786) 627-8520. We’ll pick up the phone if we’re here so we can talk to you in person! You can’t make a difference very easily with a bunch of machines:-).
Why we named our company Creative Wealth International?
Because when you allow yourself to learn something new and to think differently about money and wealth and how to create it for yourself, something magical can happen if you wish.
That’s why we love the words “Creative Wealth” and we hope you do, too!
