Marty and Nutty would like to write, but they are too busy counting the profits they have made from their latest business. Marty and Nutty haven't yet learnt how to use a computer, which could help them to count their money.I met Marty and Nutty in the forest near where I live. They told me about how they had learnt to invest the money they had made with their Nut Paste business. They asked me to write their story for you, and that is what I have done, with the help of my Dad. They never learnt much about money at Squirrel School, and they never explain how to make money on television. So Marty and Nutty learnt about how to invest their money by talking to friends who had done it themselves.Before starting their Nut Paste company, Marty and Nutty were quite scared, because they didn't know anything about business. They thought that business was not for them and that they were no good at making money. They were wrong.They discovered that it is actually quite easy to make money in business. You just need to know the rules, and those rules can be learnt easily from books like this one, or from people who already know how to make money. Everybody spends their days making money, but, for some reason, few people understand how money works.Making money is fun, and even children like you and I can start a business and invest. These last months I have made money by selling pumpkins for Halloween, and by collecting and recycling Christmas trees. It was great fun and I think you might like it too. I know the squirrels enjoyed themselves a lot. I hope you like this story about how Marty and Nutty learned how to invest their money.Arthu.
