Mark Cuban is worth more than $3 billion today, but he didnt grow up as a rich kid. The tech investor and owner of the Dallas Mavericks grew up in a working class family in Pittsburgh. His father installed upholstery in cars and his mother worked odd jobs.

 
When Cuban was a teenager, he made money however he could, including by reselling baseball cards, stamps and coins. “I have always been selling,” he says on a recent episode of ABC’s “Shark Tank.” “I always had something going on. That was just my nature.”
 
Cuban’s own experience lays the framework for his No. 1 money-saving tip for kids:
 
“Open a savings account and do odd jobs to earn money to save!”
 
No matter how much it has in it, keeping and monitoring a savings account instills good habits in children.
 
Cuban was asked to share his advice as part of a month-long financial literacy campaign run by the Council for Economic Education, a 70-year-old organization that promotes economic education and financial education in school, from Kindergarten through 12th grade.
