Here are seven simple steps that will have parents, teachers and trainers talking to and teaching young kids about money in no time at all! It will also inspire them to dream and do big one step at a time!

Step 1. Read Song Lyrics Together


The record shows it for sure

This is a land of dreamers, doers, and entrepreneurs

Where big dreams can come true

For everyone that means me and that means you

It’s knocking at my door, it’s worth shooting for

This vision I see is tugging at me

Whispering in my ear, forget your fear

Nothing you perceive is too big to achieve


I got a big ol’ dream, it’s a beautiful thing

Makes me want to whistle and sing

It’s a beautiful thing I got a big ol’ dream

Twinkles and gleams and it sparkles and beams

I got a big ol’ dream, it’s a beautiful thing

Inspiring, I feel I can do anything (anything)


It’s talking straight to my heart, this big ol’ dream

Saying if I dare, if I plan and prepare

I’ll lift you up and sing, let me take you there

I’ll get you flying high like a jet in the air


In Tallahasse and Silicon Valley, Green Bay and LA

In this land of ours you can shoot for the moon and the stars

In Kansas and Atlanta, Austin and Boston

From the desert to the sea

Anywhere and everywhere in between

In this land of ours a big ol’ dream can take you far


It’s calling out my name, so I’m taking aim

Unless I’ve tried, I won’t be satisfied

Everything I need is here inside of me

To turn this big ol’ dream into reality


I’m going to find my dream

I’m going to get my dream

I’m going to be my dream

I’m going to live my dream

Step 2. Listen to the Song

Now listen to the song Big Ol' Dream together. Listen as many times as you like!

Step 3. Discuss Song

The song is filled with powerful personal finance, dreaming, goal setting and planning concepts. Have a discussion with your child, children or students about the song. Ask them what lyrics from the song they like the most and why.

For example, I love the lyrics:

"...I got a big ol’ dream, it’s a beautiful thing...Inspiring, I feel I can do anything"

"... if I plan and prepare; I’ll lift you up and sing, let me take you there; I’ll get you flying high like a jet in the air..."

"Everything I need is here inside of me...To turn this big ol’ dream into reality"

Ask your child or students:

  • What is one of your big dreams?

  • What is one of your big money dreams and goals?
