Broke Is No Joke is a real discussion about money, wealth, and freedom for teens and tweens (and parents too). All those things that schools don’t teach, parents don’t know, and the financial industry would rather you never find out are openly taught, discussed, and challenged
This is not just a workshop, radio show, board game, book series, and international competition. It’s a movement to save entire generations from the regrets of our parents and to build a new appreciation and access to the freedom we all desire. It’s also not just a financial discussion. It’s an approach to life designed to build identity, appreciate and leverage time, and to provide the mindset for becoming the best version of ourselves.

When you take old knowledge and try to apply it to a new world, it often does more harm than good. With a school system not designed to teach money, parents and even grandparents in the same or worse financially-devastating position as their kids, and a $70T financial industry that does a far better job at marketing and selling than educating, is it any wonder how we got here?
The good news is that we can still right the ship, educate a new generation about money, and give them a fighting chance in our new world. Hey, we might even learn something ourselves!
