Even 14 Year Old Preston Gets It

I've been a mentor to a 14 year old boy named Preston here in Cincinnati for over four years. We've had a lot of fun going to a Reds baseball game, bowling (I'm terrible btw), golf, basketball and many meals at his favorite place, Chick-Fil-A. He's a super smart kid who watches a ton of informative Youtube and TikTok videos on various subject matters.

One month ago he said to me, "Hey I'm starting to earn money and I want to start investing. Can you show me how?" I told Preston that its super simple but to not expect to be a millionaire next month. He laughed and said "I know".

I helped his Mom open up an Acorns account and told him that he could have a custodian account under his Mom's account because he's not 18 yet. He said "sweet, let's go". You see, even a 14 year old knows that investing at a young age will set anyone up financially for decades to come.

I hope you want to do the same thing as Preston and open up your own investment account. It does not matter how old you are now. Just start today and let time do the heavy lifting to create real wealth.

I'm a big fan of starting with Acorns. They will even give you a $25 bonus just for opening up an account. Click HERE to get started! Remember, you have what it takes to live a life that fits your dreams.
