Secrets of Success

Child Savings Account



I started a savings account for my 3 children when they were born. Every time they received a monetary gift, large or small, I placed it into their account. Compound interest & investments over time did the rest. Today, that $ was used toward college, a home down payment & a car. I even had an account for my goddaughter who bought her first car! So, I started an account for my grandchildren Oh, I'll buy a present for them to open, but the bulk of their gift is deposited into the account.
