The Story of Our Mascot

The story of Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, is one of remarkable achievement, innovation, and unwavering commitment to the principles of financial literacy. Benjamin Franklin was not only a statesman and inventor but also a strong advocate for responsible financial management. His life story and values align closely with the mission of Houston Money Week, which seeks to make financial literacy accessible to all Houstonians. Benjamin Franklin is celebrated for his wise sayings, such as “A penny saved is a penny earned” and “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” He was a self-made man who started as an apprentice and became a successful printer, author, scientist, and diplomat. He believed in the power of education and the responsible handling of money to improve one’s life and contribute to the well-being of society.

Houston Money Week continues to reference Benjamin Franklin as their brand ambassador because his life exemplifies the very essence of what they aim to achieve. His commitment to self-improvement, financial responsibility, and lifelong learning is an inspiration to individuals seeking to enhance their financial literacy and navigate the ever changing financial landscape. By embracing Benjamin Franklin as their brand ambassador, Houston Money Week pays homage to his legacy and promotes the values he stood for, reinforcing the importance of financial education and responsible financial management as a means to achieve personal and societal success. Benjamin Franklin’s story serves as a constant reminder of the enduring relevance of these principles and the significance of making financial literacy accessible to all.
