Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
All successful companies reach significant milestones and My Job Chart (http://www.myjobchart.com) is no different. Already the fastest growing online job chart and reward system for families, My Job Chart announced today that it has surpassed key benchmarks for new members (500,000), jobs completed by kids (17.9 million) and money earned by kids through jobs done ($2.2 million). Since launching its new website in January 2011, the company has seen its member base grow 900%.
“I believe these new figures clearly demonstrate that parents recognize our service as a positive educational tool about financial choices and responsibility,” said Gregg Murset, CEO and Founder of My Job Chart. “We are living in a financial culture where it’s buy now, pay later and save never, and My Job Chart is providing an innovative way for parents and children to work together to experience earning, spending, saving and sharing money.”
As kids complete jobs, My Job Chart keeps track of their earned points that they convert into money to save, share or spend. The site allows parents to set up bank accounts to teach the importance of saving; enables kids to share by donating to one of many charitable organizations, such as United Way, Children’s Miracle Network, Wounded Warrior Project and Forever Young Foundation; and offers access to an integrated Amazon.com store where parents can purchase reward items or help kids learn responsible spending. The site doesn’t require financial incentives and parents can also create free rewards, such as a day at the park, a favorite meal or a family bike ride.
“If we really want our children to have sound financial futures, it’s up to us as parents to take the reins and lead the way,” added Murset. “My Job Chart will help parents develop plenty of teachable moments, increase interaction and helps show the importance of being charitable.”
