The Money JAR Episode #27: How Do You Define Success?

As a young child, to define success may be fairly linear: get a good job, earn a lot of money and buy what you like for you and your family.  But is that all there is to it?  And if not, how might we prepare our kids to consider the bigger picture when it comes to planning for a successful future.  Tune in to this fascinating episode as three individuals – from very different generations – explain what they’ve learned about the true meaning of success.


Our three guests are: Zoe Hall – a high school junior and founder of Project YOUTH, Grant Ebright – a father of two young children and the Vice President of Operations for Criterion Block, and Don Wood – a recently retired banking executive and former middle school teacher.
