    A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. Longtime Cash Money Records attorney Vernon Brown recently taught an enthusiastic class of teens at the WorldofMoney.Org Youth Financial Education Institute in New York City. During that time, we bet he inspired some of today's youth to put one foot in front of the other and start their career journey. He also provided informational building blocks.

    We are all for the concept of learning 'em young. Kids today need this type of education, since it preps them for the real world, especially if they want to pursue careers in the entertainment field.

    Speaking to students ages 13-18, the esteemed lawyer engaged on the topic of "Contracts" for the non-profit program's third financial education institute taking place July 22.

    Brown illustrated the importance of the subject in business and beyond. He weaved together a lesson, evincing the pivotal nature of honoring agreements financial and otherwise. Also in attendance were Cash Money Records co-founders Ronald "Slim" Williams and Bryan "Baby" Williams aka "Birdman," who also brought his young son to experience the class.

    WorldofMoney.org emphasizes youth education when it comes to navigating the often-tumultuous 21stcentury fiscal climate. The program offers insight into everything from weathering economic cycles to envisioning budgets, buying a home, building savings, circumventing debt, and understanding the entire spectrum of financial health. Brown remains a proud participant and supporter of this initiative.

    Cash Money Records would like to continue to encourage all budding entrepreneurs to follow their dreams. Amen to that! So if you have the chance to absorb or soak up this type of information through a class or a seminar or a guest speaker talk, DO IT!

    We would bet the farm that Brown's talk inspired more than a few of the participants to pursue their dreams and to want to open doors to a bright future. We don't doubt that his discussion helped shape future music biz leaders of tomorrow.

    What do you want to be when you grow up?
