Earlier this month, I read and reviewed Cash, Cars & College: A Young Person’s Guide to Money, by Janine Bolon, a neat little book touching on some of the important aspects of managing money for a teenager looking to someday become a functioning adult, moreso than the average citizen.
I now have the opportunity to give away two copies of this book, as well as additional surprise goodie or two. To participate in the contest in which I’ll choose the winners is simple. There is no purchase necessary, but I do ask you answer a question and leave a valid email address (so I can contact you if you win). Here is that one question:
What single piece of (financial) advice would you like to tell your thirteen-year-old self if technology afforded you the ability to travel in time and meet yourself without any adverse effects, such as destroying the time-space continuum, and why?
Extra “points” will be awarded for creativity, storytelling, humor, and sincerity. I’ll declare an instant winner if anyone can provide an Aaron Sorkin style script in response. Remember, I have two copies, so while the chances of winning depend on the number of comments, they’re twice as good as they would be if I had only one copy.
