Eva is the founder of TeensGotCents.com, a website that helps other teens plan for a secure financial future. Her mother, a regular contributor to the site, writes about money topics helpful to the parents of teens. Listen to what Eva has to say about teens and their relationships to money, what she thinks prevents teens from learning about money, the importance of having a job during your teen years, and more.
