MONEY RULES 101: Master Your Money Before it Masters You

A Guide for Parents and Teens

This book will entertain, empower, inspire and teach your teens about money and life.

We start with some of the basics, such as the importance of our mindset, debit and credit cards, balancing a checkbook and spending habits. As we move through the book, we’ll discuss investments, credit scores and even cover mortgages and how to buy your first home.

To inspire those with the entrepreneurial spirit, Patti covers the steps necessary to start your own business, including some fun, simple ways to generate money relatively quickly.

Teens can oftentimes struggle with stress, dealing with school, work and outside obligations. Patti offers practical steps to face these challenges with tips and tools that will equip your teen.

As a mom herself, she couldn’t help but include some “Mom lessons” that entertain and empower. It seems as if she is speaking to her own son, which she is, but the messages are for every single teen reading this book! Every mom will relate to these mini-lessons, no doubt.

This book is a must-have resource for every parent who has a desire to instill smart money habits in their teens and college bound kids. In fact, it is suggested that parents read this book alongside their teens, which can help get the conversation started.

Every chapter ends with ‘Action Items’ that will help reinforce what was read.

Pick up a copy today to put your teens on the path to financial freedom and peace of mind.

Testimonials from Back of Book

Patti has written what should be a core document for parents teaching their children about the proper use and stewardship of their financial resources.  While she is immensely practical in the implementation of these principals, she starts where we all should – living a life of meaning and purpose and viewing our financial resources as the means to expressing those values.  I know I will have my children read it.

As a business manager with the responsibility of making sure clients stay on financial track, I can confidently recommend Patti’s book “Money Rules 101.” Not many books can make you money and save you money with business ideas and expense control but this one does.

This is not a lengthy financial book that requires tedious study but direct useful information about the full range of monetary subjects.

We highly prize good, solid financial advice and Patti delivers a multitude in this book. I would be shocked if you came away with less than 15 new ideas for you or your teen’s financial wellbeing. Make it required reading and fill out the Action Items!

Not only does Patti give great financial advice in this book, but she also offers invaluable inter-personal insight, and the personal-development perspectives that most CEO’s and business leaders learn in a lifetime.

She not only teaches us about money, more importantly she teaches us about our ability to relate to ourselves and our relationship with money. 

In this book is everything that you wished the wise and successful shared with you when you were young; teaching you the things that most people are not fortunate enough to have access.
