1. Reduce your likelihood of living in poverty by 98%!

    Key 1 – Education

    Richard ended up in prison after dropping out in 9th grade. But while incarcerated, he began to change his life, learning to read and educating himself. Richard kept learning after leaving prison, continuing on a strong path to success. Witness his transformation.

    Key 2 – Avoid Single Parenthood

    Monique also dropped out. She was pregnant with her first child. Single parents are 4-5 times more likely to remain trapped in poverty. Monique wishes she knew then what she knows now. She’s instilling respect for education in her kids so they can be successful adults and she’s still working towards her GED.

    Key 3 – Work (Full-Time)

    Work not only provides money needed to pay bills, but a sense of satisfaction and pride. Richard now has a profession, not just a job.

    What choices will you make for your future? Will you use the 3 Keys to Success to help you?

    You likely know about Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, two of the founders highly responsible for the ideas encapsulated in the American Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and system of government.

    But do you know about Adam Smith, the Scottish father of modern economics, and how his ideas about free markets and allowing people to pursue their own interests, influenced Jefferson and Madison to help them create a free and prosperous society?

    Visit the Library of Congress with scholar Johan Norberg and learn more about Smith, the Founders, and Jefferson’s personal library.
