The Money Jar

Welcome to The Money JAR, a weekly show about Kids and Money, brought to you by Junior Achievement. Along with a cadre of guest experts, show hosts Evan Wilson and Todd Yuzuriha pair their unique perspectives with a mild dose of humor as they attempt to demystify the common challenges all families face while trying to educate their children on the economics of life. From the pros and cons of weekly allowances to strategies for saving $25,000 by the age of 25, our show is designed to be a practical catalyst for meaningful dialog, helping families to begin ongoing conversations around the ever-illusive subjects of financial literacy, entrepreneurship and being ready for the workforce ahead.

The Money Jar is back! After a winter hiatus and we're joined in the studio by writer, podcaster, and marathon runner Sarah Bowen-Shea of Another Mother Runner to discuss turning your hobby into a career. Several years ago, Sarah and her co-founder Dimity McDowell decided to team up and write a book about balancing motherhood, life, and running. That book (Run Like a Mother) quickly evolved into a lifestyle brand and multi-media outlet that continues to grow to this day, allowing Sarah and Dimity to run their own business centered around their passion for running.
