Chris Woods was a pizza-loving kid from St. Louis who was fascinated with the stock market from a young age. His dad taught him about the stock market and opened a bank account for him when he was only 5 years old.
“The fact that he got me started opening a bank account that early, at age 5,” Chris says. “No, I remember that. … And so, I’m trying to pass that same thing on to my kids as well. Even experience with having an account and seeing the balance grow and what happens, too.”
