About

Ever since I was a child, I was always passionate about maths, business, and teaching. However I really never applied that love for numbers to my own financial life until my late 20s. I have two beautiful daughters ages 3 and 11 as of writing this book. My goal for writing this book was to educate them early enough so they can learn good financial habits. My broader goal was to serve the community & children all across the world to get inspired and use the power of knowledge of finance to live a financially secure life. In many of the financial seminars I attended, I noticed more than 50% of the audience was very very old people some aged 60-70 years old. 

A few years ago I started to teach finance at my daughter's class hoping that would help me understand how children respond and what would be the best way to communicate this subject to them. Again my goal was to research how to make this very complex subject easy and fun.

This book is an attempt to deliver the most important financial areas in an easy, simple, visual way so kids enjoy reading the chapters and can retain the information. For this, my 11-year-old daughter 'Komal' is going to co-author the book with me and suggest creative ways to, deliver the content. Her job is to be my biggest critic and ensure the quality of the book is top notch.

Some of the topics I plan to include are: 

-What is Finance?
- What is financial freedom?
- Money & How it flows
- Earning Money Business vs Jobs
- Donation & Happiness.
- Ethical Investing- Value of Money
- Financial Goals
- Money/Spending Worksheet
- Personal Finance
- Emergency Fund
- Retirement 401K IRA Roth IRA - Loan & interest
- Budgeting Taxes Inflation
- Stock market - Technical vs Fundamental analysis
- Stock Derivatives aka Options
- Protect your stocks
- Diversification & Dollar cost averaging
- How people get poor. - How you will get rich - compounding 8th wonder.
- How to earn money?
- Direct income Passive income
- Many many more topics. 

We hope you & your children love the book and will read it a few times.

Thanks,
Gautam Vij

Risks and challenges

Writing a book is always part science and mostly art. On top of that add my perfectionistic personality and wanting to write a high-quality book that conveys finance in a fun simple way. Needless to say publishing a book adds additional complexity. My only fear is the timelines. I will however never sacrifice quality for the sake of publishing the book in a hurry. However having taught classes both at home and at our local school for past few years I now understand pretty well what to communicate & how to make it sound fun.
