Future Workers will need Technical Skills as well as Soft Skills, particularly Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration and Communication Skills. The good news is that a solid high school course of study will lay a solid foundation for these type of skills. Additional, future workers will need the ability to upskill and re-skill, as well as have a zeal for life long learning.

Assess your student, your current resources and your location, as all of these offer various challenges and opportunities. And don’t forget that you are one of your student’s best resources.

Summary (Full Transcript below the links)

In this episode of “It’s Not About Money,” Matt and Charla McKinley mark another first for the podcast with the appearance of their son Jack. Jack is on hand to discuss his collaboration with Charla on the new elementary-age curriculum recently launched by Beyond Personal Finance.

Segments

Introduction to the Book:

Charla introduces her latest project, “Before Personal Finance,” a book designed for 8—to 12-year-olds. The book aims to simplify personal finance concepts, allowing younger kids to design their lives from ages 13 to 22. Ten lessons cover basic financial topics, incorporating a shop element and plot twists to engage young readers.

The Inspiration:

Jack shares a memorable story from his childhood about a questionable purchase – a crystal dragon during a family vacation.  Despite its impracticality, the crystal dragon serves as a symbolic reminder of a specific season in Jack’s life.  Matt and Charla discuss the lessons learned from Jack’s spending habits and the importance of allowing kids to make choices.

Full Show Transcript

Matt: Hi, and welcome to It’s Not About Money, the Money podcast for intentional parents, a production of the Ultimate Home School Podcast network. My name is Matt, and I’m here with my adoring wife, Charla McKinley, the artisan of Adulting. Today is another first, another first. And it’s not about money podcast history.

Charla: That is correct. Jack is here in the flesh.

Matt: Not just. Jack the Jack. Jack. Our son. Jack McKinley. He’s here with us, Jack.

Jack: Yes, hi. I’m reporting live from the lovely and ever-so-spacious personal finance studio.

Charla: You know what, Jack? We’ll say you’re supposed to have a small space for the sound production quality.

Matt: Oh, this is gonna sound amazing. Jack, besides making fun of our studio here at the Beyond Personal Finance Head global headquarters. Tell us, like, why we invited you to this prestigious opportunity you’re here.

Charla: OK. Yeah, he’s our baby.

Matt: Talk about right. That’s not why.

Jack: Ohh, right. Well beyond that. I’ve had a bit of an extended winter break. College, and my mom gave me a choice. Option One was returned to the Water Damage Restoration Company to earn some money.

Charla: Yes, your gap, your your dapper gig.

Jack: Yeah, they know about that. Ohh gosh. Yeah. Well, there’s there’s some lessons.

Matt: They do. That was like episode three, bro. We’re selling all your cigarettes.

Jack: There are some lessons there.

Charla: Sure, sure. So return to your gap year gig or?

Jack: Option one. Option two was to help her. Watch her new product idea.

Charla: That’s right. You see, in our family, if you have an extended break, I will put you to work.

Matt: Guaranteed. We’re gonna put you to work. We’re gonna “Couch” has never been a long-term success in any family, and certainly not in the.

Charla: That’s right. We are not big, big, lingers on the couch. So I feel like it’s unrealistic to sponsor our kids while they camp out on the couch. I all.

Matt: Intended family.

Charla: Tab, our kids have time and energy to make a contribution, so that is what I require them to do. I feel like we, as parents, always complain about the amount of energy our kids have, but then we don’t seem to channel that energy appropriately. So Jack?

Jack: Yes. So, between those two options, I chose to stay warm and inside. Very. It is wet, cold, and knocking out tile flooring, yes, and I write the book for my mom’s.

Matt: Company. Maybe it’s a good idea. Too early to tell. Let’s tell us about the book. The project. What do you hope to accomplish?

Jack: Right. Yeah, yeah, of course. So, as you know, beyond personal finance, teens design their future from the age of 20. 3 to 42. It is so much with the plot twists, wheels, and choices that often younger siblings wanted the class to. But because this is a personal finance class for teenagers, it is a little bit over their heads, right? With topics like payroll taxes and compound interest.

Charla: Yeah, it’s just a bit much.

Matt: So compound interest is just powerful.

Jack: It is. It is powerful stuff, for sure.

Charla: This, but it’s a little bit. It’s a little deep waters for our tweens out there.

Jack: Yes, of course. So my mom and I wrote a book together that would be a companion, maybe, like a little sibling, a brother or sister to her.

Charla: That’s right. Oh, that’s cute.

Jack: Yes, to her main curriculum that was designed, or this was designed for 8—to 12-year-olds instead. It is called Before Personal. That’s correct. Ohh.

Matt: It’s tricky. Kind of. Before personal finance and then beyond kind of an alliteration thing on there still to be. Ohh.

Charla: That’s right. That’s right. So we took everything that our teenagers love beyond personal finance and instead went before personal finance. Now we have them design their lives from age 13 to 22. So it’s 10 lessons. With just introductory personal finance topics, we don’t go as deep naturally, but each lesson ends with them. Just like in Beyond Personal Finance, each lesson ends with them making a choice for their future self, their avatar. They’re going to earn some money like babysitting. Lawn mowing, and then, as they age, they have to go up in job choices that they can.

Jack: Lawn mowing, yeah.

Matt: Work in restoration.

Jack: Oh yeah, that’s the restoration. The other thing is that Restore Pro is just hiring.

Charla: So actually, there is a trade option because we take them from age 13 to 22. So, those who want to forego college can enter the trades right in this class here. Now, of course, you’re age 8 to 12-year-olds, and they’re just sort of making that choice, but they will get paid a trade salary. And we, but we, of course, have them put the majority of that away because, you know, it’s a little bit. We’re going to wait till they grow up a little bit more to give them the full range of adult choices because at age 13 to 22, they simply are going to write down. They’re going to have a watered-down budget with what they’ve earned. We give them a shop. Every single lesson has the shop designed to tempt them into buying and spending that money. Then, we give them the opportunity to give some of that money away and then the opportunity to save. So it’s. Kind of. It is a really watered-down but simple version that is powerful so they can see just exactly what they’re shopping for and how and what impact comes into their salary.

Jack: 100%. Yeah. Yeah. And there’s also a plot twist.

Charla: Wheel, everybody’s favorite.

Matt: Yes, very nice. So everyone loves the plot. Yes, so.

Charla: Friend, that’s correct. Correct. From beyond personal finance, of course, we can’t leave out our plot twist wheel.

Jack: Right. They spend each lesson to see what you know. Financial surprise. They had to deal with in that lesson.

Matt: Like what kind of like, give me an idea of the advance of the prize that one of.

Jack: Yes. Yeah, right, 100% I’ll give you. I’ll give you a good and a bad one. And just like in the main class, I kind of wanted to keep things true to real life, our lives. And so the good one is, hey, you capitalize on a snowstorm.

Matt: These students might learn from this life.

Jack: And shovel driveways in your neighborhood. That’s right. To have them get, like, $150.00 for that, which is about what? What I have made previously, you know, maybe like 5 driveways at $3 per doable. Super doable. And then the bad one.

Charla: That’s right.

Jack: And here’s a classic from my life. Yeah, incoming. So they give you a retainer, a little plastic retainer, to keep your top teeth in shape. Yeah, they’re already laughing. Naturally, though, it’s removable. And so every time you eat, you have to take it out. And so on.

Matt: Jack McKinley classic.

Jack: In preparation for that, I took it out, and because I was not carrying around the stupid case, I put it in my back pocket.

Matt: Yeah, it’s the perfect place. Nothing can.

Jack: Oh, so so perfect, right?

Charla: Go wrong here, Jack.

Jack: And then when it comes time to actually eat the. Meal. You know, I sit down as one customarily customarily does. And yeah, there was an audible crunch. Yes. You sit on your retainer and have to pay for a replacement one because it’s either so important I forget how much that cost.

Matt: It’s still like a crunch moment cause.

Charla: So the plot twist is. That’s right. That’s right.

Jack: But too much.

Matt: Too much for high schoolers? Doesn’t have a real job.

Charla: It looks good. So, for the 8- to 12-year-olds, they’re getting some cash, and they’re earning some cash. They’re spinning this wheel, they are shopping in the shop, and they’re really just. Seeing just exactly how life kind of flows in a simple and fun way to teach a very powerful lesson. So I also wanted to speak about the lesson, Jack, we’ve been working on your money. Habits for your. Your whole life, I wanted to just see what of all the stuff you have wasted your money on. What do you remember the most? Oh, no, no, no. This is Shaq. This is.

Matt: Let me answer.

Charla: Yeah.

Matt: If there’s only one answer.

Jack: Well, I’ll have my answer, and then we can verify if this is. We’re thinking the same thing, the Crystal Dragon.

Matt: They’re still dragons. Yes. I begged you not to buy them.

Charla: Ohh, Jack. You wanted that so bad.

Matt: I beg you not to find the crystal Dragons.

Jack: Gosh, OK. We need to hear the story.

Charla: I need to hear it briefly.

Jack: OK, yes. So essentially, for major vacations growing up, I would often get a vacation spending budget.

Matt: That’s a hack.

Jack: Right, it’s actually a great hack. Agreed. So we’re going to Disney, and in Disney, there’s a park called Epcot, which, you know, has a conglomerate of all these little mini-worlds. One of them is Mexico. And while we’re in Mexico, there is this glass blower making this really incredibly awesome stuff. And I saw.

Charla: It’s a great hack.

Jack: On this wall, this crystal Dragon is so. Right. And I was, I was like, 12 years old. It’s a crystal. It’s a dragon. These are my two favorite things. And it’s also expensive. Really. Just like my travel budget, maybe I even had to pitch in more. And as I was deciding to buy this thing, I was just, you know, I hit up and down hearing from both parental units that this is not the right purchase that I would.

Matt: But letting you do it.

Jack: Right, right, right that, that. I.

Charla: Letting you do it.

Jack: I would simply never use it, and I was. I was as strong-willed then as I am now. And yeah, I decided to buy this dragon. And it is it, actually. You know, we still have it.

Matt: Well, tell the rest of this.

Jack: Right. But it has spent the last, I don’t know, 12 years in our China cabinet, and at one point, it fell down and broke its wing. And I think it horn too, but.

Matt:  Broke.

Charla: Jack never messed with that dragon. It was. It was a complete waste, and I keep it to this day, and I will always have it. And I.

Matt: We cherish the crystal dragon.

Charla: And I love to give stuff away. My house is not filled with clutter, but that Crystal Dragon, while it may look cluttered because it is in pieces now, is just a really good reminder of that moment that season in Jack’s life. So anyway, it was a great story, and I just.

Matt: It feels like a classic story. We should go deeper into it at another time because this time, we are out of time. So, Jack, I’m gonna cut you guys off. Jack, thank you for coming. It’s been awesome singing for the holidays. We love you so much. We know you’re gonna have a big.

Charla: That’s true. That is true.

Matt: We hope that you will come back and join us in the future.

Jack: Yes, that’s true. Yeah, that’s that. I plan to be back in the summer after my internship.

Charla: Alright. Thanks, everybody, for joining us, and we will see you again soon.

Matt: Hold on. Wait a minute. Thanks for tuning in. If you want to check out a textbook, go to B4, not beyond. Before personalfinance.com, there will be a link to the show. Notes. Have a great weekend. Meet us right back here next Wednesday.

Jack: Good save, good save.

How Homeschool Teens Can Build Future Career Skills, with Wendy Baird Packard

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Future Career Skills | Future Career Skills for homeschool teens is a focus of today's podcast with special guest Wendy Baird Packard and your host Crystal Niehoff! | #homeschool podcast #homeschoolmilitarymoms #homeschoolmilitary #homeschool #careerskillsEpisode #33 – On this episode, guest Wendy Baird Packard talks about how military homeschooled teens can start now being intentional about activities that build skills for their future career plans. 

Middle school and high school homeschoolers, and even younger students, can begin being intentional about activities that build skills for their future career plans. Even if your teen has yet to decide what career path they wish to take, many soft skills and life skills are universal for all education levels and job positions. Additionally, Wendy shares specific ways military teens can find skill-building opportunities wherever the military sends their family.

Vital Soft Skills to Develop:

  • Reliable – on time, show up to work
  • Dependable – do the job you are asked to do, do it well
  • Communication – correct, cooperative, communication with team members,
  • managers, and customers
  • Interpersonal skills – how do you build relationships or interact with people at
  • all levels of your job
  • Adaptability – easily dealing with change

Wendy also goes into detail about ways military homeschool teens can be intentional about finding and utilizing activities for skill and resume building, even while still in school, as well as pitfalls to avoid.

 . . . . . .

Wendy met her spouse when he was in the Navy; per her request, he ended his Navy career after eight years. They settled into normal life, had their son, bought a house, and were civilians for nine years. However, her husband never really lost the call of the military, and after a strong sign from God, he reenlisted in the Army. Stationed at Fort Carson, she became very involved in spouse programs mentoring spouses in the expectations of military life, career, and family. She followed a long-time dream and completed her associate’s and bachelor’s degrees in communication. Wendy will begin her master’s degree in industrial organizational psychology this year at the University of Maryland. 

Seeing the difficulty service members and family members who may move often have, Wendy, found her niche in helping service members and spouses to find employment. She jumped in with every move and studied employment every step of the way. Taking a job with the Department of Labor Working with thousands of service members by teaching the mandatory Department of Labor employment readiness classes, then also providing training to staff and service members of the Wounded Warrior Army and Airforce programs, assisting as a subject matter expert for the USO employment office and Hiring Our Heroes Job fair in Hawaii, and volunteering with the Army Community Services employment office. When her family moved again, she became the Military Spouse Liaison for the Workforce Solutions office in San Angelo and the volunteer lead for the Military Spouse Professional Network chapter for Goodfellow Airforce Base.

In May 2022, Wendy launched her own consulting business that assists clients in the art of communication, potentially focusing on career change or development, public speaking, and small business employee retention. She works one-on-one with clients, facilitates group classes, and speaks at events on these topics. Wendy has developed an exceptional understanding of employment from both the job seeker’s perspective and the employer’s. She provides clients with a detailed process in career development and change. She continues to work with businesses to bring awareness to the talent pool of potential employees, military spouses, and family members can be. She loves to recreate resumes and get people on the correct path to a wonderful career despite frequent moves or job changes.

Wendy has been married to her spouse for 21 years and has a 20-year-old son. She can often be found on an adventure with her two fur babies, Rocket and Carl.

How Can I Get My Kids to Work? – MBFLP 284

This episode, we’re talking about a balanced, Biblical attitude toward our children’s work (as well as our own), and what we can do to encourage them in it!

Preparing our children for jobs of the future

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Preparing our children for jobs of the future

106: Preparing our children for jobs of the future

As we homeschool, we do have to consider if we are preparing our children for jobs of the future and that is what we consider in this episode.

Some of the ideas mentioned are:

1. Will the job still exist – and if so, will it be changed in any way?

2. Technological know-how job seekers will need

3. They may need to know how to program

4. They will need to know how to work virtually

5. Make sure they know how to teach themselves new skills

6. A skill they will still need – how to write well

7. Problem solving will always be an important ability

8. Creativity will be too

9. Ethics relating to a changing technological world

This could mean less memorization in your homeschool and more emphasis on curriculum that encourages problem-solving and creativity and incorporates technology and online work.

Show sponsor, FundaFunda Academy has classes that teach coding (Intro to Game Programming, Scratch and Python) as well as Computer Applications. In addition, many of their online classes, and all their web-based unit studies incorporate digital projects. And many of their classes also have group projects to teach students to work virtually as part of a team.

You can find show sponsor, FundaFunda Academy’s online classes and web-based unit studies here

What does the workforce look like in the 21st century? Today’s guest, Lisa Nehring shares what it means to enter the workplace today. How it is different and what you can do as a student, or adult to prepare. Lisa is a podcaster at Lifeskills 101 here.

So many people today work at home and during the year 2020, we learned the lesson the hard way as more and more stores and offices were shut down. Many were unprepared but those who worked at home just continued on.

*Excerpt of the show – listen to the recording for the full presentation.

Lisa shares how to move forward.  She believes we are just in such a time of transition, technologically we’re in, what’s called the fourth industrial revolution, and it’s really fascinating. You can look it up and check out the three previous revolutions, but we are in an industrial revolution. That’s global, we’re a global culture. And a lot of how we work is changing a lot of how we educate is changing. One book that I’ve really enjoyed the last year is called College Unbound. It’s just about how we were going through school, we would graduate from high school and there were two groups. One group would go to work and get married. And one group would go to college and then get married. Not everybody got married, but it was typical. Today that’s not necessarily the case.

You can go to work in high school. You can go to work after high school, a lot of entrepreneurial opportunities because of technology that didn’t even exist five years ago, are available today. And so a college degree isn’t going to determine your lifestyle necessarily as much as it used to. Licensing makes a big difference depending on the industry that you’re in. But we’re going to see real shifts in, in how people work and technologies that are really important and a couple of technologies that are going to become really important in the next you know, in the future three-D printing, artificial intelligence, and robotics.

During the pandemic, when a lot of people were told to stay home and work from home, people made this big shift in their life. Their kids were sent home, and parents had to figure out how to juggle work, staying at home, managing their lives, and their kids being home. Many people will not go back to work in the traditional ways that they thought they would. Other industries that are going to really explode in the future are, or not go away. They’re not going to change too much. There are jobs with stability such as our counselors, pastors, and physical therapists. And I think those two lists are very interesting. On the one hand, we have three-D printing, AI, and robotics.

We have this real techie space in this rural interpersonal space. And I think as our world grows more technologically astute with artificial intelligence, robotics, three-D printing, I mean they replaced a spleen printed by 3d. That’s crazy, right? But in that technological space, there’s this real need and desire for connection and understanding who we are as people. And that’s where the pastors and counselors come in and physical therapy, of course, a robotic entity cannot take care of PT issues. There’s just not going to work. And I think right now, as we’re all experiences that experiencing this pandemic and just walking through it, we need to be really aware of the fact that we’re living in a, in a world where we can understand what’s going on globally, by turning on our phones or computers.

We have to be really intentional about reaching out in the ways that we can. And thankfully we have technological devices to help us with that. Like just you are half a country away. And yet we’re seeing each other and talking to each other, which is a beautiful thing that is that’s amazing. And, you know, we don’t really think about the emotional side of things.

So we have to be ready. And I just think this is such a perfect time to talk about this because you happen to have an online school that is available. As an educator, for example, I’m sure they’re going to need more because things are, some people won’t want their children to go back to school. At True North, we do an orienteering class where the kids are doing college and career exploration. And they’re doing personality inventories because not everybody is going to be geared towards being an AI specialist. There’s space for everybody and who they’re created to be in this new world.

The four areas to think about are our physical, mental, social, and emotional, and again, when things get really tough, when you have a crisis in your life habits can be disrupted I really think it’s important to keep the habits that you can.  So if you got up at seven before, try to get up at seven even now and then create new habits in the new space that you’re in. So one of the things we always have done for years and years, because we don’t all have to leave right off in the morning, we’re homeschoolers is that we get up and share a cup of coffee together and just talk about things. How’s it going for everybody? What’s the news and just kind of chat together. But if you don’t have this kind of habit already established create some new ones.

We can focus on the things to be thankful for that can get us through a lot of things and, and talk to each other about the things to be thankful for.
