We’ve covered some basic questions here that are also included in the Instructional Manual. As you learn and play the game, you will probably have additional questions. Please give us a call at 805-957-1024 or email us at info@creativewealthintl.org

A. This is one of my favorite questions to answer. Think of it this way…if you didn’t learn basic money skills when you were 16, do you know them when you’re 36? Here’s another scenario…if you’re going to build a house, don’t you always start with a strong foundation? Yes, you do.

So the answer is, “There are adults in the adult program!” We have taught our adult financial education camps with the exact same games, activities and information that we use in our youth financial education program and quite frankly, it’s a profound experience for most adults and here’s why…

When you teach a child something new, it’s new. They don’t know any different. They just say, “Oh, cool.

When you teach an adult something that they then realize they SHOULD have been taught, and WISH they’d been taught when they were younger, there is an emotional component in this context that doesn’t exist with the kids. Adults are dumbfounded, as was I, when they realize how simple proper managing money really is.

Why didn’t anyone ever teach me this stuff when I was young?” is the most common question we hear from adults.

A. Not difficult at all. All of the steps are laid out clearly and if you don’t understand something, you can pickup the phone and give us a call at 805-957-1024 or send us a quick email. And if you really want to be an expert at it, simply teach it over and over again and you’ll have it down.

A. You have two choices: 1) you can download the high-resolution PDF files and print them either in color (expensive) or b&w, or 2) you can order replacement stock from Creative Wealth. Most people create their own. We wanted to keep it simple and make it so you didn’t have to keep ordering product if you didn’t want to.

A. Yes, of course. They can not use Moola though if you are using it as an incentive.

A. Sure, they can sell an asset at any time for whatever someone else is willing to pay them for it. Ask them why they want to sell an asset that is providing Passive Income/Cash Flow for them to live on each month. There’s no right or wrong answer, just get them thinking about it.

A. No, they are all individual players, unless you want to put them in teams from the start.

A. Do your best to return their questions about what they should do back to them in the form of a question such as, “What do you think?” They must learn to make decisions based on the best information possible and then experience the consequences of their decisions. You CAN answer specific questions about assets that you are familiar with.

A. No, you receive Passive Income the following round/pay period. They must own an asset for at least one round before receiving passive income for it.

A. Replace it, have a larger conversation about losing things of value (ask questions about this to the entire group) but DO NOT replace the money they lost or the asset chips if they had any. Decisions and choices must carry consequences to be lasting lessons.

A. Sure. This game has been a collaboration of everyone who has ever used it so please feel free to expand it, make it better, more fun and more entertaining. All we ask is that if you create something great, pass it along to the rest of us and please post what you did on our Creative Wealth Coach’s Facebook Page.

A. First, let go of the idea that just because they aren’t doing the activities, they aren’t grasping the lessons. Our experience is that each child will have his or her own way of participating. Second, if a student won’t buy assets, it’s generally because of a fear they have developed about assets being too risky from a parent or other relative, a friend’s parent or relative or something they heard on the radio or watched on TV.

All you can do is ask questions to uncover the student’s underlying subconscious beliefs about money and wealth. Playing our Monkey Wants a Corner activity (see Additional Activities on the DVD) may help reduce the fears associated with risk.

A. YES! We’ve played it with practically every age group and it always works.

A. YES! Poor to rich, everyone needs to learn about money.

A. No, you can use any music you wish, as long as it’s upbeat, playful and full of energy. Simply make sure you use the exact same song for every single round of the game. The reason for using the same song is because you want to ANCHOR the activity to the song. Anchoring is an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) term and refers to the process of associating an internal response with some external or internal trigger so that the response may be quickly, and sometimes covertly, reaccessed. Feel free to learn more about NLP if you’d like to be an even more powerful teacher or coach.

A. We have played this game in as little as three hours. You can make it through 6-8 rounds so that the students get a feel for what it takes (cash flow) to win the money game. End the program with a great discussion on how they can continue moving forward in their own lives in order to Win The Money Game!

A. Absolutely. Our experience is that you need one set of game bags for every 25-30 students and at least 2 volunteers for every 20 students. Just enlist the parents of the students to be your volunteers. You will be surprised at what the parents learn playing this game with their children.

Note: In a shorter version of the game, give $200 in Passive Income for every Asset the students own so they have the ah-ha sooner about cash flow being the answer to financial freedom.

A. Yes! Our entire program is now available as an online training program. We only host TeacherYou can attend one of our amazingly powerful Train-the-Trainer workshops in order to license the program for your school, community or state. It’s a great way to create extra income for yourself. Give us a call at 805-957-1024 and we’ll fill you in. Or visit:


A. This not an unusual question! And here’s what we honestly think… Just do it!

Once you read the Instruction Manual and watch the training DVDs (and laugh), you’re ready (well, more ready than you think!). You may well feel nervous, awkward, uncomfortable, and uncertain when you step into this “new” role but you can do it! Even if you teach for ONE HOUR, you will have a wealth of experience you didn’t have before. In a very short time, you’ll feel confident, empowered, energized and more at ease.

We understand the desire for more certification, more credentials, and more experience BEFORE getting out there… but we say DO IT ANYWAY! What this really boils down to is YOU giving YOURSELF permission to be messy, be awkward, be uncomfortable, make mistakes, and not be perfect…because there is no such thing. You’re not alone in wanting to avoid that… but DO IT ANYWAY!

We would love to help you brainstorm on what your first group looks like.  Gotta call us though!
