Survey 2 of 4 for parents of teens.

First of all, if you are NOT a parent of a teenage child, this survey isn't for you.

Secondly, wouldn’t it be great if someone created a series of videos and podcasts to help teenagers understand money and get the most fulfillment from their financial decisions?

Guess what.

It’s coming.

No joke. I’ll be launching the first episodes in February 2018.


The #askLyndsie show: a Podcast and YouTube channel dedicated to sharing with teens the best tried-and-true ways to earn, save and invest money.

Shows will be packed with real-life money lessons presented in easy to understand language by a Mom, financial consultant, author & teenager-at-heart, and will often feature interviews with successful young adults, like the one in my latest eBook, which you can get for FREE here.

Thanks for contributing your valuable insight to the #askLyndsie show by completing this survey! I hope you'll complete the three other surveys for parents of teens, too! You'll find them all at

With personal service and #supermompower,
