We read. We discussed ideas. We sang. We danced. We colored. We solved puzzles. We built dream big saving banks. We journaled about our dreams, goals, and money mindsets. We sang again and shared what we learned with parents and leaders from the Garrett Planning Network and financial services community. 5 year olds. 9 year olds. 11 year olds. Outstanding volunteer teen leaders. Adults. We worked and learned together. We grew our financial knowledge and spirits.
Everyone left with a bag filled with resources to grow their learning. Everyone left with a heart and mind full of money memories and lessons. Everyone left with goals, dreams and steps to talk to their parents and colleagues about.
It was a Dream Big Read financial education experience that will be remembered.
It was a Dream Big Read financial education experience we have been building and testing for twenty years.
It was a Dream Big Read financial education experience anyone can and everyone should replicate throughout the world. It starts with a story!

Hi Sam, It was awesome meeting you in person too! Thank you so much for taking the time and effort out of your schedule to be there with us and offer the workshop. Charlie is in the process of deciding if he wants to save up to take the whole family to dive in the cage with sharks or just two. He researched the costs with his dad, and he figures if it’s just two people, he can save up in about 10 years. 🙂 He already had me put all his spare cash in his FamZoo (have you seen that app?) saving account. Thanks for being such a great teacher and influence! Abby
