'Financial PEP Talk' adds video podcasts

Educational podcasts make it even easier for families to learn money management skills

Pioneer Services has been offering free financial education for many years, winning several awards for its financial education materials from industry groups and educational organizations for its efforts. In 2010, the company added audio podcasts to its lineup with the Financial PEP Talk series. Today, the company has just released the first in a series of video podcasts on its You Tube channel, giving families one more option for how to learn about their finances.

"With families so busy and their lifestyles often hectic, they need information that is fast, free, and effective," said Karen Von Der Bruegge, the executive in charge of financial education for Pioneer Services. "Our new video PEP Talks fit the bill. In less than five minutes we provide financial tips that are easy to follow, and even easier to use."

The first episode is called "Five Tips To Reduce Debt," and can be viewed at YouTube. Future topics will cover how to increase a credit score, simple investing tips, budgeting that works, and many more. The company will also still offer its popular audio podcast series on iTunes.
