Teaching Children About Money – Stacking Benjamins Episode #1


Subscribe to the podcast through iTunes and new episodes will show up every week!

Never subscribed to a podcast before? Here’s Apple’s fantastic tutorial.

The Stacking Benjamins website isn’t yet ready, but the first episode of our new podcast is complete and hot off the grill! THE Shannon Ryan from The Heavy Purse joins us in the basement to talk about educating children about money. Not looking forward to bored kids this summer? You’re in luck. Shannon’s brought some great tips that we know you’re gonna love.

This week we’ll have new shows for you Monday, Wednesday and Friday to celebrate the launch of Stacking Benjamins! I’m incredibly glad you’re listening. Make sure and do us two favors, if possible:

1) Chat about the new show on social media.

2) Write a review for iTunes.

Why am I asking? While most of the time I like reviews but won’t ask for them, the next few weeks are important. If we have enough listeners in the first week AND we garner enough reviews, we may land a spot on iTunes New & Notable section, and that helps our show marketing tremendously.

Coming later this week:

Wednesday – We introduce PK from DQYDJ (wait till you hear his new intro….) and Kathryn, the Makin’ Sense Babe. Also we have a couple stats from Bank of America that are worth talking about.

Friday – Len Penzo and Dominique Brown make their debut on Stacking Benjamins by interviewing each other about their values, financial goals and money habits. Joe & OG discuss movies for the first time on the new show.

And now….show notes!

Shannon Ryan on Stacking Benjamins podcast

Shannon Ryan shares some cool tips to make your summer easier.


Shannon Ryan is a CFP who believes strongly in the value of financial education. We’re glad she could visit the basement to share some not-so-obvious tips. These hints will make the summer easier for you as a parent and more fun for children.


Don’t have children? Check out these tips anyway. Shannon’s approach is familiar because she’s teaching kids early the same skills that many adults struggle to internalize.
