Mike Kelly is an author, father, and pilot. He is an amazingly sincere person with a natural love of financial education. He turned into a self certified expert at an early age. Just after military basic training, his sole motivation for getting into financial education was helping his mother after a divorce. After all, if your parents aren’t financially fit, who can you turn to for help?
Life Lessons at Any Age
I learned a lot from the book. I even used the stuff I learned from the negotiating chapter to negotiate a sweet discount for all of our loyal Untrained Housewife readers. So take the code, and go enjoy 35% off the list price. Simply go toMoneyMechanix and use the special code UTH. It will be good until January 10th, plenty of time to stuff stockings and recommend friends to buy for their graduating kids.
Financial Advice from Personal Experience
For those that have read his book, financial advice for the high school graduate, you know that financially fit parents are important for kids to learn good habits from and to build the blocks of their future. Mike took the reins for his mother and away from financial planners that were focused on commission and not client needs.
From Counselor to Author Mike Kelly Writes Book for High School Graduates
After counseling soldiers Mike decided to write a book, to reach a bigger audience, and serve a demographic that is often ignored. It is also the toughest demographic out there – newly released teenagers. Insanity. Teens are hard to teach, especially those that just graduated high school, because they think they know everything, they think their parents are idiots, and they want to live on the beach and study comparative literature, play sports, or just Rock and Roll.
Acclaim for High School Graduate Finance Book
Financial Advice for the High School Graduate is a fast and fun read. The best part is that each chapter stands alone, and the teen doesn’t need to sit and read the entire thing. If he is buying a car, he can glimpse at the car buying strategies chapter, if she is thinking about renting an apartment she can read through that. I recommend dog-earring or bookmarking the chapter on Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll. Don’t tell the kid what it’s about, or even mention the chapter. Just hand over the bookmarked book. You can even download the book as an e-book, upload onto a reading device like a Kindle, and bookmark on the device. Make it easy. Teens struggle.
I asked Mike where these stories came from. He said that all of them are real life stories that happened to him or people that he knows. There is one hilarious story that involves a table, roaches, and roommates. I’ll leave it up to you to get the book and read all about that story.
