From Tadpoles to Teaching About Money

Background Information


As a Money Coach for the New Economy and founder of Money Lessons for Life®, Garrett Jay passionately makes learning about money interesting and easy to understand for students and adults. He continues to develop creative, innovative, and interactive financial literacy programs including Money Field Trips, The Trading Game, and Bid for It. He believes being aware of your money, making well-informed decisions, and saving early and often are essential to achieving financial independence.

From Tadpoles to Teaching Money
Garrett Jay's financial experience began when he was nine years old and decided to capture, raise, and sell tadpoles to his friends.  His early entrepreneurial ventures didn't stop there.  From seal coating paved driveways, to deejaying parties, to selling pumpkins from his NYU dorm room for Halloween, he envisioned opportunities and seized them.
            Garrett Jay learned the value of money at a very early age.  His parents didn't force him to learn about money, but they encouraged him to earn and spend his own money.  He doesn't remember ever receiving an allowance or getting paid to help with chores around the house.  He says, "I never expected any money from my parents and believe I am a better person monetarily today because of it."
