Next Gen Personal Finance

Aug 23, 2017

From his first job delivering newspapers to assorted "side hustles" he had in high school and college, Lothar Konietzo learned early on the value of saving money. I became aware of Lothar's work as he was recently recognized by VISA as an Innovative Educator. You will enjoy hearing about the creative activities he has developed to engage his students. These include using sneaker culture to teach entrepreneurship and how he has adapted the stock market game to teach the importance of long-term investing. Enjoy!
