Munny Journey is a book that is challenging the traditional wealth saving model. This is accomplished through changing cultural thinking by empowering and educating people, using simple and easy to understand terms, about mutual funds and compound interest. By combining increasing life expectancies with a new saving model, anyone can create financial security like never before. Money is not the problem…..it’s how we think about money that is the problem. Munny Journey is an investment plan that starts the day a child is born.
Brad Dugdale, founder of Munny Journey, is challenging the traditional wealth saving model. In everything that Brad does, there is a desire to challenge the status quo, to disrupt the traditional way of thinking about money and planning for retirement. For as little as a dollar a day, you can create financial security for you, and your children or grandchildren.
What if parents and grandparents were aware that they could turn a newborn into a millionaire for only a dollar a day?
Would we have the same headlines about families in financial distress 30, 40 or 50 years from now? Problems with money are the result of a low level of financial education, and if parents have poor financial skills they can pass those to their kids creating a generational “debt spiral”.

Give the Child You Love Financial Security
If you save a dollar a day for a child it could grow to a nest egg worth a million dollars or more over their lifetime. We all know the importance of starting to save early but many people don’t have an easy plan or method of doing so. Munny Journey is a solution for new parents interested in providing financial security for a child. This creative journal is both a Keepsake and a guidebook to show new parents and grandparents how time can allow even the smallest deposits of money to grow to wealth beyond your wildest dreams.
This full color illustrated journal explains stocks, bonds & mutual funds in easy to understand terms. It has pages to store memories such as ‘baby’s first dollar’, ‘first savings account’ and even your state quarter. It is a Keepsake of financial dreams and something parents can turn to over and over again to help a child understand money as they grow.

Munny Journey is a Keepsake Journal for Baby’s First Money. Modeled after traditional baby journals it contains pages to record money “firsts”, such as baby’s first dollar, first savings account and first investment. It is also an educational tool, providing information on saving and investing and illustrating how the magic of compound interest can create wealth.
It is possible to create a millionaire by age 65 for just one dollar a day starting at birth. The assumption used is that the money grows at an average annual return of 9%. This is less than the historical average annual return of the S & P 500, the most widely used benchmark for United States stock investing.
The book has two primary themes. The first is the keepsake theme of the book with pages to record the financial dreams of parents, grandparents and others. Clear pockets are included to store baby’s first dollar and state quarter. There are pages dedicated to others first’s such as savings account, bond, stock investment and financial advisor.
The second theme is what makes it truly a book more than just a keepsake journal. Organized into chapters such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds and college savings the keepsake pages are accompanied by easy to understand text about the different investments and concepts. The goal is to present the value of starting early in a new and unique way rather than with complicated terms and ideas often found in financial books.
The book also shows different examples of compound interest over a lifetime and allows parents to track the balance of an account with a “Munny Mountain” chart and photo pages to be used as the child grows.
The journal has inspirational quotes separating the chapters and is beautifully illustrated with original artwork by Krista Brand. Shelby Ronnestad served as creative director overseeing design and layout. Rich Ronnestad contributed text, charts and calculations.
