Everest Money Simulation

I Want My Kid to Learn How Important Saving Money is – the Hard Way. Said No Mom Ever.

But how the heck are you supposed to stop your child from spending all of their money as soon as they get it?

Saving money is the basis for so many important life transitions they'll go through.

And unless you want them to get run over by the debt cycle when they try to do adult things, like put a first and last month's rent deposit down, get married, or take their OWN family on vacation one day — we both know you don't — then you've got to include this in your mommy-lessons box.

THERE’S A WAY FOR YOU TO CHECK OFF THAT MOMMY BOX, TEACH MY KID HOW TO SAVE MONEY WITHOUT BREAKING A SWEAT.

You can do this without having to confront your own money insecurities or your own money mistakes (heads up, we all have them).

Without having to talk until you're blue in the face, wondering if they're actually listening.

And, MOST IMPORTANTLY, without having your own child suffer through financial troubles as an adult and learning this lesson the hard knocks way.


I’VE CREATED A ROBUST HOW-TO-SAVE-MONEY COURSE, DISGUISED AS AN EPIC CHOOSE-YOUR-OWN-ADVENTURE PROGRAM. YOUR KID WILL DEVOUR THIS.

But you don't have to take my word for it. 

Look at what these past Everest Ground Support Team Members + their Parents have to say:

“Now, I think about money more. I think more about things in the future, and what I might need to save to get there.”


“When my Mom asked me if I wanted to do the Everest Money Simulation, I was nervous about meeting new people and wasn’t sure if I would know enough about money to be helpful. I really liked interacting with other kids like me, and being part of a team. I learned how important it is to set a money goal, and what it takes to meet a goal in time for whatever you are saving for. I think it was a fun way to learn with other kids about money! Now, I think about money more. I think more about things in the future, and what I might need to save to get there. I’m more comfortable working with other kids, and I’m more curious about Everest – I want to know more!”MosesAge 10

“My daughter (11) was able to learn all about concepts such as budgeting, saving, & planning for financial emergencies.”


“Amanda's Everest Money Simulation was so much fun to participate in, and my daughter was able to learn all about concepts such as budgeting, saving, planning for financial emergencies, as well as the basics of sales tax and making wise spending decisions. The simulation was engaging and such a fun adventure.”Deana HipwellMama Bear

“My kids were fortunate enough to do this. They are homeschooled and LOVED it!”Linsey KnerlMama Bear

“The Everest Simulation was so interactive and interesting.”


“The Everest Simulation was so interactive and interesting. I liked the setting, and how you had to save Erik. I also liked how interactive it was – you had your own paper and you were able to see the other people in the simulation.”RileyAge 10https://www.youtube.com/embed/WFVN8aV7bIU?feature=oembed&autoplay=0&loop=0&controls=1&mute=0&wmode=opaque&rel=0

And it's happening against the backdrop of Everest.

Why Mt. Everest?

Because the highest mountain on earth — almost-insurmountable to all but a few — is the perfect backdrop to broaden your child's money frame of reference.

Even if the average person had the strength and endurance to summit Everest, the money that it costs ($65,000 is a typical estimate) puts it far out of reach for almost everyone.

Everyone, except those who know the secret to realizing their dreams: craft a realistic savings plan, and have the gusto to see it through.

Your child will learn how to nail a realistic savings plan for Everest. And after learning how to do that, they'll be able to nail any savings goal they could think of.

CONQUERING ONE’S DREAM TAKES MONEY. THAT’S WHERE YOUR CHILD COMES IN.

Erik, our fictitious, 28-year old climber, has a dream to summit Everest. He's roped our group − his Everest Ground Support Team − into the process, and it's our mission to get him to the mountain and down again without going into debt.  

Psst: And by the way, this program is based on real, actual events that have occurred or could easily occur on the mountain, backed up by over 30+ books, interviews of summiters, 100+ hours of footage, etc.

I'm kinda a brainiac that way.

As a valuable member of the Everest Ground Support Team, your child will:

Reach a target money savings goal, based on 5 key decisions we make as a team. 

Craft a realistic savings plan for how to reach that target money goal.

Work through 3 money problems Erik encounters while on the Mountain.

No two simulations will turn out the same! There are too many cool variables involved for that.   

Psst: And the best part? All the while, we'll be bridging your child's money education crevasse without them even knowing it. Because they'll be having too much fun!

WHEN: June 30th

WHAT TIME: 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. CSTYAS! My Kiddo is Joining the Team!

THIS IS WAY MORE THAN SUPPLEMENTING YOUR CHILD‘S MONEY EDUCATION AT SCHOOL, (WHICH BASICALLY DOESN’T EXIST, BTW).

I've been reading up on what's really going on with money talk in our schools (yep, I'm a nerdy fact-checker like that). It's not pretty.

At first, I was surprised + super-stoked to see that not only do 17 states have mandatory financial course requirements, but that my own state, Texas, was one of them.

Money in the house!!!

Except then I ran across this statistic from the National Endowment for Financial Education’s study, Teachers’ Background & Capacity to Teach Personal Finance:

“Only 11.6% of K-12 teachers had taken a workshop on teaching personal finance…In fact, over 60% of teachers and prospective teachers said they do not feel qualified to teach their state’s financial education standards. And teacher education faculty members in those states were no more familiar with state financial education standards than K-12 teachers themselves.”

[I couldn’t help but bold that statistic after I had 30 seconds or so to lift my bottom jaw back up from the floor.]

Ummm….

At that rate, your child is more likely to stumble upon an actual shark in the bathtub during Shark Week than to stumble into a financially literate life*.

*maybe a slight exaggeration from a Shark Week Fin-natic

Do you really want your child's money education left up to teachers who − through their own admission − have no clue what they're doing (if they're actually even in the 17 states where money education is required)?

I think not.

THIS IS A LIVE SIMULATION, DELIVERED BY A CERTIFIED FINANCIAL EDUCATION INSTRUCTOR (YOURS, TRULY). WHICH MEANS, SPOTS ARE LIMITED.

Module 1: Everest Ground Support Team Membership + Mission Reveal

  1. Mission Reveal: Get Erik to Everest and back, without going into debt.
  2. Your child joins the Everest Ground Support Team.

Module 2: Decision-Making with Real Financial Consequences as the Simulation Progresses:

  1. Purchase Evacuation Insurance?
  2. Rent or buy three specific pieces of equipment?
  3. Which expedition company to use? 
  4. Create an emergency fund?

Module 3: Realistic Savings Plan Creation

  1. Paycheck analyzer module that breaks down Erik's paycheck before and after taxes.
  2. Bills Analyzer that breaks down how much of Erik's paycheck is left after typical “adult” bills are paid.

Module 4: Work through 3 money problems Erik encounters while on the Mountain

  1. Received through pre-recorded dispatches.
  2. Think-on-your-feet, including specific variables chosen by the group that lead to limitations and resources.

Each Everest Ground Support Team Member fills out a Money Plan Worksheet as an active member of the team.

Includes 9 various money calculations that are directly transferable to everyday adult money skills.   

Money Action Challenge + Digital Surprise

We want their learning to continue, post-simulation, so I'll be giving them a money action challenge. 

Email me, and upon completion, they'll receive a (super) fun digital surprise from me for free!

ARE YOU READY TO SECURE YOUR CHILD’S SPOT, WHILE SECURING THEIR MONEY FUTURE?

To ensure I can give as much attention + energy to your child as possible, groups will be limited to 10 or less.

Get on the waiting list by clicking below, and I'll work down the list on a first-come, first-served basis.

WHEN: June 30th

WHAT TIME: 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. CSTYAS! I want this!

HERE’S THE THING. NOT ONLY DO I FEEL QUALIFIED TO TEACH YOUR CHILD HOW TO SAVE MONEY, BUT I DARN WELL LOOOOOVVVEEEEE THE SUBJECT.

Do you remember having a dream as a kid you just knew you would never realize because it was as financially unreachable as Pluto is to the Space Program?

I did. I knew I wanted to study abroad in Spain the day I flipped to a random page in my 7th-grade Spanish textbook and landed on a Museo del Prado painting.

But I grew up on a family-run dairy farm. My parents constantly fought about money, not to mention both declared bankruptcy within ten years of one another. It was hard enough to ask for a new pair of sneakers, let alone for thousands of dollars to go on a trip.

The amount of stress was palpable, and fear is how decisions were made.

Somehow I found the stick-to-it-ness to work on my dream to get to Spain, despite not knowing whether I would ever actually reach it. I mucked our neighbors' horse stalls for two years, earning $98/week. I worked weekends on our farm's pumpkin stand in the fall for some extra income.

Fast forward 4 years and I was a junior in high school. It was the last summer of my high school career, so if I wanted to do this, I had to apply (and fast). The only problem? I was still $1,000 short. Just $1,000 was standing between me and that dream I had had 4 years earlier, but it might as well have been a double-sided fortress.

Still not wanting to give up, I made a Hail Mary move by applying for a $1,000 study abroad scholarship offered by our high school.

I interviewed, and I waited.

That afternoon when I heard my name called over the speaker system, announcing to the whole school that I had won the $1,000 study abroad scholarship, still brings chills to me as I type this today.

Just months later, I became a foreign exchange student in Villadiego, Spain for an amazing 6 weeks. And it changed my life forever.

My focus is to prevent the sort of money catastrophe that unfolded in our household growing up from happening to your child by filling in the sorely needed money education gap as early as possible.

And it’s not just that; for me, it’s personal.

I’m building the program I want my 19-month old son to take one day.

YOU CAN FIND MY MONEY WORK FEATURED IN:

PreviousNext

In addition to this, I've studied at the London School of Economics for a semester while interning at Parliament (go Welsh Plaid Cymru Party!!), studied abroad in Japan (where I met my husband), and graduated summa cum laude from Washington College back when Napster and AOL Instant Messenger were in their heydays.

JUST IMAGINE THE AMOUNT OF MONEY YOUR CHILD COULD SAVE INSTEAD OF LOSING IT ON DEBT AND INTEREST-PAYMENTS. $26,500? $59,496? MORE? FILL IN THE BLANKS!

YAS! I’m buying my kid a spot.

What age is this program for?

It's designed for kids between the ages of 8 and 13 years old.

My child is a money novice. Are they ready for this program, or is it too advanced for them?

This program is meant for money newbies, plus those that have been handling their money for a few years. Why is that? Because, quite honestly, even most adults are handling their money wrong (and they've had their hands on it for years!). There are many things your child will learn if they're more advanced, and we'll be starting from the bottom up for those who are pretty new to money. Since it's housed in an adventure program, no one will get bored working through it, no matter which category they fall into.

How will they be able to apply + build their money know-how from this information once the simulation is over?

Your child will be filling out an Everest Ground Support Team Money Plan as we go along in the simulation, and will get to take this home.

On top of that, they'll get a free digital surprise from me that they can use when crafting their savings plans for any money goal they have moving forward in life.

What's the REFUND policy?

Because this is a live simulation, we are unable to grant refunds. However, if you have an emergency, we may be able to reschedule your simulation in the future (based on availability).

Are you teaching my child to climb Everest, (*ahem*) something I don't want them to do?

Don't worry, Mama Bear. I outline all of the dangers and improbabilities a climb on Everest entails. So they'll get the full story from my end on how difficult an Everest Summit bid can be.

What if my kid is too shy in groups to actually answer questions, will they still learn?

Each child will be responsible for filling out an Everest Ground Support Team Money Plan as we move through the simulation. We work from the principle of no team member left behind, meaning I call on kids throughout and make sure everyone is on the same page before we move forward.

If your child is too shy to speak up, there is also a chat box that some of the kids like to use to message one another + me.

What technology + materials will I need for this to work on my end?

I'll be using Zoom Meeting to deliver this program online (free for you) — you'll want to make sure whatever device your child uses on the day of our simulation has a working mic + speakers. You'll need to print out several documents ahead of time that will be sent by file once you complete your payment. Your child will also need: a calculator, a pen/pencil, a pair of scissors, and an extra sheet of paper.

What is the Time Commitment of this program?

There are a few to-do's to complete before our simulation begins, such as a short pre-quiz for your child to take that will help me see where they're at with their personal money education. Each simulation will run a bit differently in terms of time. From start to finish, you'll invest about 2.5-3 hours in the program.

IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO TELL YOUR CHILD AT THE STORE, THAT’S NOT A SPENDING PRIORITY FOR US RIGHT NOW, AND THEM ACTUALLY UNDERSTANDING + RESPECTING YOU. READY FOR THAT KIND OF MONEY CLARITY, MAMA BEAR?

And it's happening against the backdrop of Everest.

Why Mt. Everest?

Because the highest mountain on earth — almost-insurmountable to all but a few — is the perfect backdrop to broaden your child's money frame of reference.

Even if the average person had the strength and endurance to summit Everest, the money that it costs ($65,000 is a typical estimate) puts it far out of reach for almost everyone.

Everyone, except those who know the secret to realizing their dreams: craft a realistic savings plan, and have the gusto to see it through.

Your child will learn how to nail a realistic savings plan for Everest. And after learning how to do that, they'll be able to nail any savings goal they could think of.

Erik, our fictitious, 28-year old climber, has a dream to summit Everest. He's roped our group − his Everest Ground Support Team − into the process, and it's our mission to get him to the mountain and down again without going into debt.  

Psst: And by the way, this program is based on real, actual events that have occurred or could easily occur on the mountain, backed up by over 30+ books, interviews of summiters, 100+ hours of footage, etc.

I'm kinda a brainiac that way.

As a valuable member of the Everest Ground Support Team, your child will:

I've been reading up on what's really going on with money talk in our schools (yep, I'm a nerdy fact-checker like that). It's not pretty.

At first, I was surprised + super-stoked to see that not only do 17 states have mandatory financial course requirements, but that my own state, Texas, was one of them.

Money in the house!!!

Except then I ran across this statistic from the National Endowment for Financial Education’s study, Teachers’ Background & Capacity to Teach Personal Finance:

[/av_textblock]

“Only 11.6% of K-12 teachers had taken a workshop on teaching personal finance…In fact, over 60% of teachers and prospective teachers said they do not feel qualified to teach their state’s financial education standards. And teacher education faculty members in those states were no more familiar with state financial education standards than K-12 teachers themselves.”
[/av_icon_box]

[av_one_full first av_uid='av-15x5t0′]
[av_textblock size='20' font_color=” color=” av_uid='av-37curv8′]

[I couldn’t help but bold that statistic after I had 30 seconds or so to lift my bottom jaw back up from the floor.]

Ummm….

At that rate, your child is more likely to stumble upon an actual shark in the bathtub during Shark Week than to stumble into a financially literate life*.

*maybe a slight exaggeration from a Shark Week Fin-natic

Do you really want your child's money education left up to teachers who − through their own admission − have no clue what they're doing (if they're actually even in the 17 states where money education is required)?

I think not.

    Do you remember having a dream as a kid you just knew you would never realize because it was as financially unreachable as Pluto is to the Space Program?

    I did. I knew I wanted to study abroad in Spain the day I flipped to a random page in my 7th-grade Spanish textbook and landed on a Museo del Prado painting.

    But I grew up on a family-run dairy farm. My parents constantly fought about money, not to mention both declared bankruptcy within ten years of one another. It was hard enough to ask for a new pair of sneakers, let alone for thousands of dollars to go on a trip.

    The amount of stress was palpable, and fear is how decisions were made.

    Somehow I found the stick-to-it-ness to work on my dream to get to Spain, despite not knowing whether I would ever actually reach it. I mucked our neighbors' horse stalls for two years, earning $98/week. I worked weekends on our farm's pumpkin stand in the fall for some extra income.

    Fast forward 4 years and I was a junior in high school. It was the last summer of my high school career, so if I wanted to do this, I had to apply (and fast). The only problem? I was still $1,000 short. Just $1,000 was standing between me and that dream I had had 4 years earlier, but it might as well have been a double-sided fortress.

    Still not wanting to give up, I made a Hail Mary move by applying for a $1,000 study abroad scholarship offered by our high school.

    I interviewed, and I waited.

    That afternoon when I heard my name called over the speaker system, announcing to the whole school that I had won the $1,000 study abroad scholarship, still brings chills to me as I type this today.

    Just months later, I became a foreign exchange student in Villadiego, Spain for an amazing 6 weeks. And it changed my life forever.

    My focus is to prevent the sort of money catastrophe that unfolded in our household growing up from happening to your child by filling in the sorely needed money education gap as early as possible.

    And it’s not just that; for me, it’s personal.

    I’m building the program I want my 19-month old son to take one day.

    In addition to this, I've studied at the London School of Economics for a semester while interning at Parliament (go Welsh Plaid Cymru Party!!), studied abroad in Japan (where I met my husband), and graduated summa cum laude from Washington College back when Napster and AOL Instant Messenger were in their heydays.

    What age is this program for?

    It's designed for kids between the ages of 8 and 13 years old.

    My child is a money novice. Are they ready for this program, or is it too advanced for them?

    This program is meant for money newbies, plus those that have been handling their money for a few years. Why is that? Because, quite honestly, even most adults are handling their money wrong (and they've had their hands on it for years!). There are many things your child will learn if they're more advanced, and we'll be starting from the bottom up for those who are pretty new to money. Since it's housed in an adventure program, no one will get bored working through it, no matter which category they fall into.

    How will they be able to apply + build their money know-how from this information once the simulation is over?

    Your child will be filling out an Everest Ground Support Team Money Plan as we go along in the simulation, and will get to take this home.

    On top of that, they'll get a free digital surprise from me that they can use when crafting their savings plans for any money goal they have moving forward in life.

    What's the REFUND policy?

    Because this is a live simulation, we are unable to grant refunds. However, if you have an emergency, we may be able to reschedule your simulation in the future (based on availability).

    Are you teaching my child to climb Everest, (*ahem*) something I don't want them to do?

    Don't worry, Mama Bear. I outline all of the dangers and improbabilities a climb on Everest entails. So they'll get the full story from my end on how difficult an Everest Summit bid can be.

    What if my kid is too shy in groups to actually answer questions, will they still learn?

    Each child will be responsible for filling out an Everest Ground Support Team Money Plan as we move through the simulation. We work from the principle of no team member left behind, meaning I call on kids throughout and make sure everyone is on the same page before we move forward.

    If your child is too shy to speak up, there is also a chat box that some of the kids like to use to message one another + me.

    What technology + materials will I need for this to work on my end?

    I'll be using Zoom Meeting to deliver this program online (free for you) — you'll want to make sure whatever device your child uses on the day of our simulation has a working mic + speakers. You'll need to print out several documents ahead of time that will be sent by file once you complete your payment. Your child will also need: a calculator, a pen/pencil, a pair of scissors, and an extra sheet of paper.

    What is the Time Commitment of this program?

    There are a few to-do's to complete before our simulation begins, such as a short pre-quiz for your child to take that will help me see where they're at with their personal money education. Each simulation will run a bit differently in terms of time. From start to finish, you'll invest about 2.5-3 hours in the program.
