Episode 63: Ava Kofke-The Financial Angel

July 29, 2015


Ava is an amazing young lady. She has figured out that there is a difference between wants and needs. She knows the difference between debit and credit cards (There are many adults who need to listen to her.). She advises others that if you don’t have the money- well, then…you shouldn’t spend it. 

Ava doesn’t just offer this advice by talking about it, she has written a book called The Financial Angel. The book is filled with powerful suggestions about dealing with money and activities to help the reader practice having and using money.

All of this and –wait for it-she is going into the 6th grade!


As I talked with Ava, I knew that she must really be a 45-year-old financial planner.

Enjoy the talk. I hope that you will share with your children and adults who need help with understanding the good and the bad of money.

Thanks Ava for sharing your great thoughts about managing money.
