Inspiring Conversations with Lindsey Arnold of KidCent$

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lindsey Arnold.

Lindsey, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Well, I am a mother of five and have been an entrepreneur since 2018, and am currently working in the financial industry as a resource to help educate people on money matters. It was always important to me to teach my children and my family financial literacy due to the fact that I didn’t really get the education and empowerment until after I stepped into the world of entrepreneurship. Talking to my kids about basic and advanced financial concepts but breaking them down in a way that would be easy for them to understand was pretty much something I had done from that moment on. One day I said to myself, other parents need this for their children, and KidCent$ was born! KidCent$ is dedicated to teaching children financial literacy through storybooks, interactive workbooks, apps, and music.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road at all. Our goals are to help close the financial literacy gap between generations as well as the racial wealth gap in this country. The biggest challenge I found was getting our purpose understood and rallied behind. Financial literacy isn’t sexy. It isn’t entertaining in an everyday sense. However, the way KidCent$ is designed to be entertaining, fun, and easy for both children and parents, I am confident we will get much accomplished in the coming years.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
KidCent$ teaches children financial literacy in an exciting and dynamic way through storybooks, interactive workbooks, apps, and music. I am extremely proud of this company because I know it will stand the test of time. While I won’t always be around to teach my family’s future generations and help other children in this country’s future generations, KidCent$ will live on forever and continue the work.

If you had to, what characteristic of yours would you give the most credit to?
“Keep going, don’t stop, make it happen” has always been my motto. When you stop you never get to see the other side of that journey. So it’s important for me to recognize that everything will be thrown at me when I am rising to a new level. Recognizing THAT is the key to success.
