About the author
Tim’s saving habits began at the age of seven, when a neighbor with a broken hip asked him to walk the dogs. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim becoming quite familiar with bank tellers (and accumulating over $300 in a savings account!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a chipping truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies, and helping families make more informed decisions about college financing. After volunteering to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto in 2010, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and action-based curriculum that inspired him to found a new nonprofit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
