Intro tease:

So, you got some cash, maybe from an allowance? Or, that money your grandma gave you for your seventh birthday.


Here ya go, sweetie! Woo hoo! Thanks, Grandma! Whatever it is, what are you gonna do with it? Spend it? Hide it away? Or maybe invest it? Let's start learning how to make that money grow. Time to learn how to be a Cash Kid. 


Welcome back to this special episode of the Cash Kid Podcast. I can’t believe it’s already been one year since we launched this podcast. This podcast started as part of a school project.


In the 5th grade, I was asked to create a passion project. And for some reason, starting a podcast came to mind.


The first four episodes were really just me talking about what I’m passionate about and scripts I wrote while in class. We may actually go back soon and revise those some as they were written before we had a clear mission statement… or knew we were going to continue the podcast after the school project.


We got such great feedback on our first episodes and were told by many we should continue the podcast but we needed a clear mission for our audience.

So, after producing 7 episodes for 7 weeks my Mom said, “I think we need to seek some advice and get some help.”


And so, we used my summer break to meet with a podcasting expert and get some guidance on what steps we needed to take to grow this podcast.


We set-up our website,, and a YouTube channel to publish our episodes. We started an Instagram page as well. But the main focus, was putting a plan together of where we wanted to take the podcast.


The mission was clear to me. I wanted to teach kids and adults the financial literacy skills they need to start saving and investing money early. My goal is to help my generation grow the greatest wealth with a slow and steady approach and be the most financially literate.


No get rich schemes here.


Since then we completed season 1 with 15 episodes.

Then we launched season 2 which was all about building “Super Financial Skills.” This is currently episode 17 of that series.


So far, we’ve interviewed 15 different guests on the show that represent a wide range of individuals from a kid running his own car detailing business, to a financial advisor, tax expert, a high school finance teacher, book authors, and CPAs running their own training courses to help others get out of debt and start investing.


I have learned so much! And it’s affected how I invest and think about money.


What have I learned?


I’ve learned that running a podcast is harder than it looks. There are numerous aspects beyond just recording audio. 


And talking into a microphone takes some training. 

There may be a few blooper clips added to the end of this episode. My Mom likes to torture me and save them.


So stayed tuned to the end. She said I’ve gotta learn to laugh at myself when I make these mistakes.


Running a podcast has taught me you must remain persistent and continue to think outside the box. It takes planning and learning new skills.


I’ve had to learn how to write more and write faster than others my age. I’ve had to learn how to communicate confidently on-camera, plus interview skills, and editing skills in creating content to post on our social channels.


We also went from producing audio only podcasts to now an audio and video format these last two months.


Where are we headed now?


In future episodes, we’re going to focus on ways kids can make money. We plan to interview what we consider to be fellow Cash Kids who are using their skills and entrepreneurial mindset to make some cash, while still kids.


We’ll continue to build super financial skills by helping you all break down financial terms and understand what your options are.


We’re going to continue talking with others on how to push for more financial education in our schools.


We want to make money a more common topic in homes and encourage kids and parents to talk openly about money to build good habits early.


We plan to talk about how to research publicly traded companies and what options you have as kids to start purchasing stocks to begin your investing journey.


We’ll dive into the world of employment. How to find that first paying job whether a part time job while in school or summer job. How to be a good employee and build your way up!


And, ways we can give back with what we’ve been blessed with.


These are all skills to tie into having healthy money habits and a good money mindset earlier in life.


Remember, my motto on the Cash Kid Podcast is that anyone can be a Cash Kid, you just have to learn how to become one. That’s why we created this podcast. Time is on our side to learn these financial skills earlier in life and carry them into adult years prepared and avoid big money mistakes.


Now, I’ve got a few things to let our listeners know about.


First, if you aren’t following us on social media, please be sure to head over to Instagram, YouTube, or Facebook and start following the Cash Kid Podcast. We post content here between episodes with helpful tips and advice.


Next, we are launching a new Cash Kid Podcast website at very soon. Be sure to head to our website to subscribe to our mailing list.


And finally, I’ve wanted to offer this for months now, but we said we would wait until the one-year mark but we are now offering Cash Kid Podcast merchandise.

That’s right, we’ve got merch!


We’ve got t-shirts, hoodies, athletic wear, shorts, mugs, and hats. I’ve been wearing my Cash Kid hoodie or t-shirt to school for a few months now and kids are always asking how they can get one. Now you can, just go to and select the tab for merch to purchase yours today. And watch for our instagram because we are going to do a merch and book giveaway.


We welcome you to become a part of the Cash Kid mission to build super financial skills at a young age.


We can’t thank you enough for your support. Honestly, your kind words to me and encouragement are overwhelming. It helps me push forward with a project that most kids my age don’t understand or would never attempt. Just remember, anyone can be a cash kid, you just have to learn how to become one.


Cash Kid, out!
