What would happen to communities when families and students are more financially aware and educated? Just imagine...
When high school students plan for college, they will have the financial knowledge for how to pay for it instead of the many families with students who are accepted to their dream colleges yet decide not to go because they lack proper financial aid knowledge.
When high school students graduate, they are prepared to make smart financial decisions dealing with the many debt financing offers such as buying their first car and to learn how to manage living expenses with proper budgeting and saving best practices.
When college students graduate, they are prepared to make the right career choices, invest, plan for retirement, and be financially independent.
Now, being financially aware and educated is just the beginning as the real practical value is in developing money skills through experiential learning and practice. Just imagine...
When teachers and parents want to teach their students and kids about money, they will have the tool to effectively do so without unengaging them with just lectures...instead, they will have a way to create a fully immersive experience using the money simulation game for the students to practice and develop money skills of making, saving, borrowing, and investing money.
Uniquely, this uses real accounting principles, actual mortgage and credit lending procedures, and investment rules. Similar to developing flying skills with flight simulations, this is developing money skills with money simulations. Learning money is like learning a foreign language, it is best to be immersed in the environment such as living in the foreign country for a few weeks instead of sitting in the classroom for years. This game will immerse the student to master the language of money.
