Start learning today.
Inspiring young minds to invest
Tamra Orr involves young readers with relevant topics and youthful expressions, to attract their interest. She starts a conversation between two young students from the school, sharing: “Tim chuckles … I own a part of McDonalds”. “You do not!” exclaimed Sasha. “… My grandmother bought me some shares in McDonalds for my birthday …”
By defining the terms in plain language, Tamara informs young readers without boring them. This will also work for adults. As she explains what a stock is, she notes, “It’s part of a business that other people can buy.”
Orr shares simple practical tips that anyone can follow to help readers apply their principles. She focuses on investing in the stock market, suggesting: “If you don’t have money right now, you can still find out about the market. Pretend you have money and then follow the market to see what would have happened. .. “
Tamra has a strong ability to focus on aspects that gain the attention of young people. In one case, she refers to the ability to vote on the company’s problems, revealing: “Owning even a small part of a company can be interesting. In many companies, holding a single share is enough to buy you voting rights … your vote could eventually affect you if McDonald’s adds another chicken sandwich or a new pie flavor! “It simply came to our notice then.
Children and adults will be educated and encouraged to start investing. Or say, “It’s never too early.”
