Who am I?
My name is Dean and I was able to retire nine years ago at the age of 51. You might wonder how I was able to retire at such an early age. I have put together a presentation that describes just how I did it. I like to give the presentation to high school and college students, because it is much easier to retire early if you start at a young age. Even if you don’t want to retire early, the presentation demonstrates many good money habits that can help everyone.
Need a plan
Doing well with money or retiring early does not just happen. People do not wake up one morning with enough money to be able to retire. It starts with a plan. Many people have a problem making a plan because they don’t know where to start. That is where my presentation comes in. It will help you get started.
I have put together a free 45 minute to one hour class for high school and college students about the advantages of starting saving early in life, compounding, living below your means, saving for retirement, investing in the stock market, etc.
Very interactive presentation
The presentation is not just sitting down and listening to me drone on about facts. It is very interactive and keeps the students engaged. I ask them many questions and they are encouraged to ask me questions throughout the presentation. My feedback from teachers at high schools is that the students really enjoyed it and learned a lot.
I have presented at 24 Austin area high schools including all six Leander high schools, all five Round Rock schools, all four Pflugerville schools, Georgetown, East View, and Liberty Hill High Schools. I presented to over 3,600 students in 2021/22. I am an approved volunteer through LISD. I also present on Zoom or Google Meet to anyone in the country.

His presentation was relevant and interactive and will be valuable to everyone that hears him speak.
I highly recommend Dean for any guest speaking opportunities and know that he will greatly appreciate the opportunity to share his knowledge of financial literacy in the classroom.
