About Prosperity4Kids, Inc.
When I started Prosperity4Kids, I knew it was an endeavor much bigger than me.
I teach children the 10/10/10/70 concept, which not only gives a plan for their money but a plan for life.
There are four key elements to this plan…
Giving kids a plan for their money. Giving kids the education they need to grow their money.
Giving kids the vocabulary of money. Giving kids the tools, games, and resources that will
engage them in the wonderful world of money.
Investing in their future. Investing in their ideas and dreams of the future.
Investing in the education needed to teach them how to make it on their own.
Investing time and energy in creating mini moguls who will invest in their
own futures and teach the future generations to do the same.
Saving them from financial ruin. Saving them from a sea of debt.
Saving them from another financial crisis. Saving them from creating
low self-esteem and lack of confidence. Saving them from broken families.
Saving them from financial mistakes that take years to overcome.
Spending time & money wisely. Spending time teaching kids a work ethic.
Spending time educating kids on the value of money. Spending time teaching
the power of compound interest. Spending the time to teach money concepts early
when habits are created. Spending time teaching children to do what they love and
love what they do. Spending time and energy educating our most valuable assets, our children.

Rochelle Finder is a mom of 3, Wife and life-long friend of Lori Mackey. After years of life getting in the way, Rochelle asked her daughter to look up her old friend Lori Mackey on Facebook, she found Lori’s daughter and was able to see that Lori had written a book and created the Money Mama. She instantly fell in love with Lori’s mission and passion for teaching children about the wonderful world of money with Prosperity4Kids.
What resonated most were the simple but powerful lessons of Money Mama. To give is the noblest idea of all and it touched me at the deepest level. I am very fortunate that we have been able to make a difference in our community, our family and the ideas that are important for us.
I knew instantly that I wanted to be a part of Prosperity4Kids knowing that these ideas and philosophies can change the world we live in and make it a better place for our children.
When I was a kid, I remember my mom’s checkbook, and if I would ask her to buy me something, and she would tell me she did not have the money right then, I would say ” Mom just write a check, you have a whole checkbook full of them! “
