Who wants to be a millionaire? Well, if Susan Beecham, CEO and Founder of Money Savvy Generation has anything to say about it, anybody can learn how to bank the bucks, but especially young people.
Beecham, who has been a financial expert for the Dr. Phil Show, was invited to the Golden Dome at Sheridan College Tuesday for a youth Conference to speak to junior high students from Sheridan, Johnson and Campbell Counties.
Diana Stoick is with the Wyoming Jump Start Coalition, which is comprised of bankers, financial experts, teachers and others around Wyoming who want to help students learn early how to handle money. She talks about this 2nd annual event.
About 120 students attended the "How to Think Like a Millionaire" program. Stoick said they first tried it out last year in Cheyenne with over 400 young people, and they hope to continue their efforts for years to come.
