Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 17, 2014
The National Financial Educators Council has presented Gregg Murset, founder and CEO of My Job Chart, the 2014 Financial Education Instructor of the Year award.
The NFEC chose Murset because he successfully built the largest online community that teaches kids about work ethic, accountability, responsibility, time management and making smart money decisions – My Job Chart.
The Financial Education Instructor of the Year award recognizes individuals that have demonstrated a commitment to the financial literacy movement. With over 638,000 members, Murset has developed My Job Chart into a program that meets the NFEC’s award criteria: delivers practical financial education programming, raises main-stream awareness and has a model that ensures long-term sustainability.
Murset’s idea for My Job Chart came from real life experience as he struggled to find anything on the market that would help teach his six kids the necessary financial principles they would need as adults. My Job Chart provides a free online chore chart and reward system for organizing and motivating kids to learn how to save, share and spend. This system, which adds a new member every 90 seconds, encourages families to work together and turn teachable moments into productive work and smart money decisions.
Before leading My Job Chart, Murset had his own successful personal insurance and financial services practice for 18 years. A graduate of Arizona State University with a degree in finance, Murset has also earned many professional designations in his industry including: CFP®, CLU, ChFC, CFS, RHU, REBC and CASL.
“Financial illiteracy has reached epidemic proportions in our country, and causes major problems at both the community and national levels. We commend Gregg Murset for developing My Job Chart and for his commitment to providing financial literacy programming can help improve the lives of individual family units while strengthening the community as a whole,” states Vince Shorb, CEO of the National Financial Educators Council.
As an industry leader, My Job Chart is tackling the larger issues in personal finance education in schools, student loan debt, the lack of youth work ethic and increased youth entitlements. By meeting with members of Congress, CEO’s of financial institutions and Fortune 500 Companies, Murset positioned My Job Chart as an organization working to change the way kids are prepared for the future financially. In a little more than three years, My Job Chart has accumulated more than 638,000 members, who have completed more than 21 million jobs, earned roughly $3 million and donated to numerous charities including The United Way, Operation Smiles, MANNA Worldwide, Forever Young Foundation and Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation.
The National Financial Educators Council's mission is to create a world where people are financially capable to make sound, effective financial decisions that improve their lives and the lives of people they influence, all around the globe. The NFEC’s recognizes those in the industry that have made a significant contribution to the financial literacy movement.
