The Money JAR Episode #11: The Yuzuriha Family Show

On a special episode of the Money JAR this week we  take time to meet the Yuzuriha family.  With the kids back home for the holidays, host Todd Yuzuriha and Money JAR producer Alex Ward sit down with Todd’s kids to discuss the dynamics of growing up in the Yuzuriha household, such as work readiness, growing up with family meetings, having conversations about school and careers, and how to deal with money. Todd’s children range from a high school freshman to a graduate student, and they offer some concrete stories and examples of how topics discussed in the Money Jar come to fruition. The Yuzuriha family demonstrates how positive role modeling has encouraged career preparation and financial responsibly in their day-to day-living.
