Earning vs. Making Money Activity Lesson

Most of our children are still being groomed for getting jobs when they get out of school…but there are so many other, more satisfying, ways to bring money into our lives in order to be financially responsible for ourselves and our families.

With this simple lesson called Earning vs. Making Money, your participants learn key distinctions between the two. In the end, they generally realize that MAKING their own money brings them a lot more freedom and opportunity in life. It also makes them fully responsible for themselves.

For every future adult that we prepare to be be independent, we keep one more from being dependent on a system that keeps people locked to jobs they hate for years on end, most never realizing there is any other option!
