Welcome to the Money JAR, the podcast giving a youth perspective on important financial, career, and life-planning topics that affect all of us. Along with a range of guest experts, show hosts Todd Yuzuriha, Evan Wilson and Mindy Lockard have paired 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.
We now have a high school student co-host joining Mindy on the show to bring the Gen Z perspective, Rishika Vinnakota. The Money JAR serves as a resource for young people who are curious about steps they can take to plan for their future success.
