Everything must evolve to survive. With technology advancing our world, this is certainly true of today’s modern families and the companies in which service them.
In January of 2011, a father of six was looking for a solution to the problem – how to keep track of his kids chore responsibilities, reward a weekly allowance and teach them the basic financial principles surrounding earning, saving, sharing and spending money wisely. Out of this necessity My Job Chart was born and immediately became one of the most popular family tools to help parents teach their children about work ethic and managing money.
Nearly six years later and evolution is knocking on the door. Technology has advanced allowing a car to drive itself, a private message to automatically disappear in seconds and money move from account to account over any mobile device. Technology evolved, families evolved, and so, My Job Chart had to evolve.
We welcome you to BusyKid, the first online chore chart where kids can earn, save, share, spend and invest real allowance wisely. BusyKid will replace My Job Chart though it uses a similar platform that promotes work ethic, responsibility, accountability and smart money management. However, BusyKid is much easier to use, more robust and allows kids to receive a real weekly allowance from their parents as quickly as answering a text message.
BusyKid is now the featured product of LeapSpring, Inc., a company committed to helping parents raise their kids in a positive and productive environment. After all, the LeapSpring team consists entirely of parents, who know the challenges of raising modern kids first hand and understand that evolving is just part of living.
