I absolutely fell in love with this The Lemonade Stand Millionaire after just reading 1 page! That is the power of a good book. Gail Haynes, the author, starts her book with sharing her amazing story about when she became a single mom, and that she promised herself that her children would never experience the financial hardships she went through, and with that, she started teaching them how to make money work for them. This story is very similar to my mom’s story…our story!
In The Lemonade Stand Millionaire, Gail Haynes teaches how to encourage and find the Entrepreneur in your children. She includes astonishing stories and amusing, entertaining, and fun cartoons to go along with the lessons. I’d like to share a few things I learned from her book:
- I learned we must have the attitude of abundance if we want to be abundant. I really like the creative “Jar technique” Gail uses to help her children use their money in a balanced way.
- I also learned the 4 types of spenders. When you read it, let’s see if you can guess which one I am!
- And finally, I learned that our thoughts create our feelings, they create the actions we take, and, the results we receive.
I learned so many things I thought I would not be able to fit them all in here. I couldn’t. You can learn more too, that’s why in my book review I’d like to encourage you to buy The Lemonade Stand Millionaire book by Gail Haynes (published by Morgan James Publishing) so you as well can learn to help your children understand money and make it work for them.
Be an example!
