Big Ol’ Dream Song


First, think. Second, dream. Third, believe. And finally, dare! -Walt Disney

We hope Sammy Rabbit’s Big Ol’ Dream song makes it fun and easy for you to inspire kids to think about, read about, write about and declare their dreams – their BIG dreams!

And then as Walt Disney is quoted as saying – (more or less) – go after them, one step at a time!

Dreams can be powerful in shaping habits and behaviors – that includes money habits and behaviors.

They can bring more purpose and meaning to our lives. They can inspire us to sacrifice, delay gratification, save and invest.

The can help us use our time more wisely.

They can help us discover who we are and what we are capable of accomplishing.

Dreams have lots of potential payoffs and R.O.I – return on investment.
