Blonde Money Questions: A Vlog Series
When you were a kid, do you remember your parents and teachers telling you to always ask questions in class, even if you were scared to look stupid? The reason they told you that is because, more often than not, other students had the same questions. Well, something I have discovered recently is that we should still be encouraging people to raise their hands, because a lot of people have the same questions…
When I was home over the holidays, there was not a single outing or party I went to where I wasn’t asked at least a handful of money-related questions; some were about credit cards, others were about debt repayment, and most were about mortgages. And none of them were stupid! In fact, there were many questions that I didn’t have answers to. But I can tell you that I was asked a few of the same questions multiple times.
Are you curious about the differences between fixed and variable rate mortgages? Are the acronyms RRSP, RESP, TFSA, etc. still unknown territory that you have yet to look into? Do you want to understand how a consolidation loan works? Or have you been wondering how much debt is too much debt? These are just a few of the questions I was asked over the holidays, often more than once. Now, I want to answer them here.
I want to take all of your questions, find the answers, and give them to you in the form of a vlog (video blog). I don’t know how many of these vlogs I’ll be posting – they could be weekly, monthly, quarterly or even just once/year – that all depends on you. So, if you’ve ever had a money question you wanted an answer to, or even a question about my own financial situation, don’t be scared to send it my way! I may not know the answer, at first, but I promise to find it for you.
