Our Founder and CEO, Gregg Murset ® recently traveled to Oklahoma City to be on several TV shows to discuss the growing problem of financial illiteracy among young people. From an environment of credit and debt to parents overindulging and not expecting their kids to contribute around the house this problem is becoming a real epidemic. My Job Chart with its 530,000 members is proving to be a solution that more and more parents are turning to to combat these disturbing trends.

Live with Bill Handle, LA’s #1 Drive Time Radio Host: Kids and Money – Part 1 in a 5 part series with Gregg Murset, CFP
Gregg Murset, founder of MyJobChart.com, says, “It all boils down to the fundamentals. You either teach your children to be financially responsible when they are 7 or you teach them when they are 27 and have come back to freeload off of you.”
A stunning 39% of adults ages 18-34 come back to live with their parents.
Even Bill Handle, LA’s #1 drive time radio host, admits to moving back in with his parents at the age of 34.
Are these kids home for a quick respite after a lost job or are they home to eat their parents food, use their car, and selfishly delay their parents retirement?

I absolutely love the sticky notes feature on MyJobChart. It is so unique and not even possible with other chore charts. It’s wonderful to be able to personalize a quick message of encouragement or love to each of my boys. They love writing me back and I even received a message from my son scolding me by saying that I “hadn’t written him in a month!”
They usually tell me instantly when they’ve written me a message and they wait with excitement for me to read it; but there are other times on busy mornings when they are already off to school and it’s a nice surprise when I get the email alert that I have a message from them. It truly is a great way to connect to each other!

Since the beginning of the new year, we have had a chance to look back and take note of all that MyJobChart.com has accomplished and look ahead to what is in store. Of course none of what is accomplished could be done without the participation of all of you, the parents and kids that use MyJobChart.com. For instance, did you know that there are currently 287,450 members signed up, over 12.9 million jobs that have been completed, and over 144 million points that have been accumulated on MyJobChart.com. If you ask me, that makes for a cleaner, happier, more productive, and more responsible generation.
Our children, and I say our, because I’m not only the founder but my kids use MyJobChart.com too, are growing up with a stronger sense of what it takes to earn a dollar. They are learning how to obey and the benefits of it. All in all, we are reaping the benefits of chores.
But don’t take my word for it. Janelle, from Kansas says, “I love MyJobChart.com because it helps my kids be more responsible about getting their chores done.” Or Doug, from Ohio says, “My wife was pulling her hair out one day because the house was a mess and the kids wouldn’t help. I found MyJobChart.com online and we started it the next day. Since then, my kids are asking to help and my wife is enjoying our home again.”
You’re experience with MyJobChart.com may be similar to these. Whatever the outcome, I hope it is a good one. We would love it if you could share how MyJobChart.com has helped in your house. And we’d love to hear any suggestions of how we may improve as well.
In fact, it was a parent that asked if we could make MyJobChart.com accessible from her smart phone. Well, you talked and we listened. I’m excited to announce that by the end of this month we will be launching a new iphone/ipad app as well as an android app. Now you can check chores done and receive messages even when you’re not at home.
Speaking of messages, there have been over 211,000 messages sent to kids and over 133,000 messages sent to parents on our clever message board. If you aren’t already using MyJobChart.com, sign up today and you could join in on the millions of chores that are being completed today!
