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.

Cancer is one of the greatest battles that humanity is facing, but thankfully we have some of our smartest people working on making cancer a thing of the past. On this Cool Careers episode of the Money JAR, the team talks with Laura Springgay, a Research Scientist working on a cure for cancer. We talk about how she became a research scientist, the path through school she took, and what her day looks like as she “plays” with viruses that attack cancerous cells.

Financial literacy is important to teach to children as early as possible. The issue is how to make something as complex as finances in a clear, simple manner. On this episode, the Money JAR team talks with a parent and professional financial advisor about ways that he is teaching his kids about being financially literate through literal money jars. Eric Brotman is a financial advisor, President and Managing Principal with Brotman Financial Group. We also talk to Eric about steps that parents can take to make sure their children are safe and secure as they grow up.

Many kids start businesses. Most of them are lemonade stands or lawn care, something that keeps them occupied for a day or during the summer. Some, on the other hand, start something big and can help shape and define their lives. As parents, it may take some support to help your child succeed the world of business. On this episode, the Money JAR team talks with Gabby Goodwin, the CEO of GaBBY Bows, and her mother, Rozalynn, about how Gabby started her business and how parents can support the entrepreneurial spirit in their kids.
