    Hi, I'm Mara, the founder of Financial Parenting World. Economist by background (Dr. Rer. Pol. Summa Cum Laude, Fribourg University, Switzerland), I am a senior leader in Finance, trained at Harvard and IMD. I have over 21 years experience in wealth management, working with billionaire families across Europe, and driving social & digital innovation across the financial industry on a global scale.
    My journey in finance led me to focus on my biggest passion: Financial Parenting! I spent years exploring what wealthy parents are most concerned about: how do I teach my child the value of money, and ensure they grow up with good money habits?
    Today, I am pioneering new ways to help all parents be their children's best Money Role Models. I hope to see you in my FINANCIAL PARENTING MASTERCLASS: the world's first and only comprehensive financial parenting course on money, ethics and impact, with everything you need to shape your kids' financial future!

    Book reviews

    Playful rhymes and bright illustrations bring a fun approach to a serious, important subject. Financial literacy is not a common topic in children’s books, especially not fun, playful books with Seussical rhymes and cadences. But that’s just what Mara Catherine Harvey offers in A Smart Way to Start, addressing early childhood financial education. 
    A Smart Way To Start (Marty's erstes Geld) is a great children's book that stimulates not only children but also adults to think. The rhymes and the beautiful illustrations make it fun to deal with the topic of money and this journey can start early.
    Age recommendation: 5-12 year olds.
