How do you try to inspire your fellow men?

Benjamin Wendt: The important thing for me is that I didn’t grow up with it myself. My parents took care of it, but I always had the feeling that money was very tight. We had to save and always pay close attention. On the one hand, that’s good because you get a certain awareness of saving. On the other hand, it has given me the feeling that I tend to live in deficit. I consciously try to see my children differently. We have several children and a certain income that we have to deal with. But we can increase that, there are certain options. I try to explain to them how our world works: “If you have a hundred euros now and you spend a hundred euros, then you will have nothing afterward. But what could you do if you put 50 euros aside for a long time? What can happen to it? ” Explain simple things. Bodo Schäfer has published this wonderful book “A Dog Named Money” – the most successful children’s book on finance. My two big guys read that. It was very impressive for her and also presented very simply.

I also show my children my payslip. I want them to know what kind of income we have. We keep a budget book, so you could also participate via an app if you like. I try to make it very tangible in my family environment and also to tell the children specifically what there is.

In the work environment or with friends, I try to be an inspiration. It’s difficult sometimes because you realize that many just don’t like it. Simon and I have to be careful at our workplace that we don’t talk about it so often. The others say: “We can no longer hear”. I can’t understand that because I think it’s a really important topic. We have no way of avoiding the money. What importance we give this is our decision. But I think you can be inspired. That was the motivation of our congress and what follows now: for people who have not yet dealt with it that much. So less what the stock valuation looks like, but what options there are. How can I get there?
