Charla McKinley

Charla McKinley graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in Finance. She went on to become a Certified Public Accountant with over 25 years working in both the private and corprate sector. While homeschooling her two children, Charla was inspired to write an interactive personal finance curriculum that opens the student’s eyes to the high costs of being an adult. After retiring from homeschooling, Charla continues to teach teens live in Raleigh, NC and across the country using her Beyond Personal Finance curriculum.

Charla’s passion is teaching teens that their choices matter. She is a firm believer that in order to prepare teens for the road ahead they must be given the opportunity to practice making good (and not so good) choices using real dollars before they get out into the world and have real regrets.

Dollars & Sense

Our children will spend less than a quarter of their lives in our homes. As parents we have a narrow window to prepare them for the road ahead. We spend years teaching our children how to read, write and do mathematics, but how much time do we spend teaching them about money? As with any skill, our children need more than just lectures about money and learning by your example. Financial illiteracy has the power to cripple our children as they enter adulthood. What is keeping you from training your children in this key area? Would you like some tips and tricks to help you guide them? Join me, a homeschool mom, financial consultant and retired CPA, as we talk through how raise a fiscally responsible adult.
