My Latest Fascinating Discoveries: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
New Children & Teens Financial App That I Am Drooling Over (& Wish Had Existed When I Was A Kid!)
Did you know that 76% of young adults can’t pass a basic financial literacy test? And that three out of four high school grads will be in debt within a year?
As I talk about in my book Boundless Parenting, it's so important to leave your kids with more opportunities, a better life, and a strong moral compass. This means that you need to establish a strong foundation that sets the path for your child's financial, economic, and social success.
When you teach your kids about money at a young age, you're actively laying the “life skills” bricks for that strong foundation. But where you do start? Anyways, my friend Scott Donnell (who I also interviewed here about his Hapbee technology) just launched a new financial literacy app called Gravystack, which is designed to teach kids about money, and this thing goes way beyond the basics of earning and spending.
Gravystack helps kids learn by watching their money earned flow through a “Money Machine” which then gets filtered into their Spend Jar, Save Jar, and Share Jar. Being able to see this in real-time helps them to understand better how to manage their money with much more confidence.
The app gives your kids the opportunity to:
- Learn the value of saving with the Save Jar
- Spend real money through their Spend Jar with their Gravystack debit card (that you control)
- Donate from their Share Jar to any US charity of their choice
- Play cool games that teach them about managing their money
- And more!
This is the app “of the future” for truly teaching your kids about the new world of finances. Fact is, many young people just today don’t know how to accomplish real-life financial tasks like opening a bank account, buying or leasing a car, or budgeting for groceries. GravyStack's mission is to create 50 million financially competent kids ready to succeed in the real world. Kids as young as eight years old can learn to make and manage money with GravyStack.
Click here to check it out, along with your kids. This one will be a game changer for financial literacy for our youth, and I'm happy to help spread the word about it.
Healthy Ice Cream That *Actually* Tastes Good
But until a few years ago, there was no such thing as “healthy” ice cream in the grocery store, and I would pay for my indulgence later in the form of wrecked digestion, gas, and bloating from the dairy and sugar combination.
Now, not only are there ice cream brands that don't contain unhealthy sweeteners, additives, and gut-disrupting dairy, there are companies creating ice creams that deliver health benefits. Like, they're not just not unhealthy, they're actually healthy. (I go through what makes an ice cream healthy in depth in this recent article.)
My latest favorite healthy ice cream just started shipping, so I wanted to make sure you had the “scoop.” Guardian Angel Dessert Co. makes ice cream specifically to strengthen and defend the body’s immune system, which they call “Delicious Defense.”
Here's GAD's “NO” list: Dairy, Gluten, Grains, Soy, Pea/Whey Protein, High Sugar, HFCS, Artificial Colors or Dyes, Artificial Flavors, Sugar Alcohols, Stevia, Artificial Sweeteners.
And take a look at this impressive “YES” list: Coconut Milk Base, Keto and Paleo Friendly, Multi-Collagen Protein, Bioavailable Vitamin C, Bone Broth Protein, Probiotics, MCT Oil, Allulose, Monk Fruit, Essential Oils, All Natural Colors (from fruit/vegetables).
The “heavenly” flavors include Salted Caramel, Pistachio, and Coconut Vanilla, and you can order multi-packs to figure out your favorites (also, the packaging is pretty badass).

My New Parenting Book Is Available To Pre-Order Now
That is, I just put the finishing touches on my brand new parenting book – which covers and decodes everything from education to baby nutrition to discipline to legacy to finances to college and much, much more!
It's called…drumroll please…
Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
This book isn't just written by me and my superstar wife Jessa. Rather, I put together a dream list of amazing and inspirational parents who I admire and asked them to share their best-of-the-best tools, tactics, and habits for raising incredible children in this modern world.
Part of my motivation to create this anthology of parenting wisdom was my own wish to know “all the answers” before I became a parent. I would have loved to have had the perfect parenting blueprint. Unfortunately, when Jessa and I were young parents, there was no step-by-step instruction guide that existed for how to raise impactful, happy, and fulfilled young humans – so we, along with most parents, walked into this life-altering journey without a blueprint.
But now it exists. Why try to go on this parenting journey alone and make time-wasting and life-changing mistakes when parents who have come before you can share with you all their insider secrets?
So now Boundless Parenting is here…I couldn't be more excited, and guess what? Pre-orders are LIVE right now! Head over to BoundlessParentingBook.com to learn more and sign-up for pre-order notifications.

::: Save 10% On Timeline Nutrition's Cellular Health Supplements :::
Most of us don’t have the right bacteria to naturally produce beneficial levels of Urolithin A, a molecule that stimulates a recycling process inside our cells.
Actually, only 1 in 3 people produce enough Urolithin A.
Unfortunately, it's difficult for most people to get enough of this specialized nutrient from food alone, which is why I've turned to Timeline Nutrition for their Mitopure supplement, which delivers 6x more Urolithin A than a glass of pomegranate juice.
This has been a game-changer for me, as I've been noticing and feeling the more explosive and powerful energy to be the man I need to be each day.
Timeline Nutrition offers two different ways to take their supplement:
Softgels: Improve your cellular health by taking Mitopure in its simplest form with two softgels daily for the recommended dose of Urolithin A (500mg of Mitopure). Each bottle contains 60 softgels, which will last you a month.
Powder: Cellular energy with a fresh and flavorful twist. The health benefits of organic ginger bring more than just flavor to the Mitopure powder. Each pack contains your daily dose of Urolithin A (500mg of Mitopure). Mix it with yogurts, smoothies, and other breakfast favorites.
You can trust Timeline Nutrition supplements to unlock the bioactive potency of Urolithin and transform your cellular health.
