Involving your kids in your business will give them tremendous hands-on financial education that will stick with them through adulthood. It might be a bit daunting at first, but there are a lot of ways to make it enjoyable and sustainable for both you and your child. In this episode, Alec and Julie sit down with Jamie Trull, a former corporate finance professional turned entrepreneur, about teaching kids about money through employing them, the importance of financial literacy, and tips on teaching money skills at an early age.

Jamie talks about her journey balancing entrepreneurial pursuits while teaching her children the value of work, delayed gratification, and responsible money habits. Jamie also shares her experiences teaching her children about debt, credit cards, and making financial decisions.
