Divorce Conversations for Women


Oct 8, 2021

In this episode, Rhonda welcomes Gregg Murset, the CEO of BusyKid, which is the ultimate debit card and app that helps teach kids how to manage their own money. Gregg is a Certified Financial Planner and consultant who has become a great advocate for sound parenting. In this episode, Gregg shares the importance of teaching your kids the value of money and managing it. He gives us some good tips on how you could help your kids have a better future by teaching them about the financial aspects of life. 

According to Gregg, it’s important to know the balanced financial approach to financial management which is what our kids need to learn. Who is a better teacher than you, right? His message for you today is: Teach you kids while they’re young. 

Here are some of his tips:

  1. A balanced financial approach includes saving, sharing and spending. You need to teach your kids what these three things are and what they do to help us manage our money. It’s the reality of life and they should know this while they’re young. Preparing them for the future is a gift that they will eventually thank you for. 
  2. Teach them real life skills like earning money through allowances or chores. Kids learn best through experience. The rubber meets the road when they’re actually experiencing real life scenarios. If you do this, you set up your kids for future success. 
  3. Be consistent and use technology, These are two important aspects of building your kid’s success. Teach them to consistently earn money, save a little bit, share a little bit and spend on their card. If you completely fall off the wagon, then just get back on. You don’t have to be perfect but be consistent. Plus, use technology for your benefit and just go with the flow.
