Our kid's education is important. The time they spend in school can help them determine their plans for college and their future careers.

But is our kid’s school situation the best it can be? Are they really learning? Are we actually preparing them for current global economy?

According to our guest today, time’s are changing and our school system needs to change as well.

Emma Perez joins us today and we’re going to discuss transformation education and how our kids can thrive and live happy lives.

What are we covering?

Emma and I discuss:

  • Why kids are more depressed in school than ever before
  • How we as parents can help this situation
  • The best ways to plan for our kid's future in college

Emma's perspective as an author, career coach and mother helps us get a deeper understanding of an incredibly important topic. This one is for parents of younger kids and teens.

SHOW LENGTH: 41 minutes

About our Guest:  Emma Perez

Emma B. Perez has drawn on her experiences as a student, a parent, and a college and career coach working with schools. Her book, “What’s the Point of School?” and her blog at is a treatise of that experience, her research, and a new vision for education.

“I believe that true education transformation is not just a reworking within our system but a reimagining of the system altogether. It is a culture change. We need to change the way we think, view, and talk about education.”

Money Master of the Week

Brianne from Illinois recently shared some awesome news for her young family on Twitter!

She recently paid off 3 credit cards after receiving her tax refund and now she has her eyes set on becoming debt free in 4 short years.

She and her husband have just started their debt free journey with $60,000 to go, but they have taken the first steps:

  • Setting a Goal
  • Taking Action
  • Partnering Together as a Couple

One book that is super inspiring for them right now is the Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey. That’s the one that got me hooked!
