While I myself haven’t joined the growing wave of folks posting video clips on YouTube,  I continue to be impressed by the people who are embracing this new medium in a professional way — and using it to pass along some great information via short, engaging video productions.

Along those lines, I recently checked out a wonderful short video created by Debbie Whitlock of Sound Financial Partners.  Debbie is a financial advisor here in the Puget Sound area, as well as a friend of the firm, and she’s put together a six-minute clip that shares some very solid advice on how to get your finances (and related matters) pulled together following a layoff or unexpected job loss.

What I particularly loved about this presentation, and why I decided to share it, is that Debbie demonstrates a tremendous knowledge of some of the new credit laws, COBRA regulations, and other government programs that can help families get by during these difficult times.  This was a significant “value add” beyond some of the traditional advice I’ve seen financial professionals give regarding these situations — and reflects Debbie’s commitment to educating her clients, versus simply selling them services.  Here’s a link to the video:


If you found the info in this video helpful, definitely let Debbie know by clicking here.  I’m sure she’d love to hear from you, especially since I can imagine it takes a certain amount of courage to get up in front a camera and “broadcast” yourself out to cyberspace at large!
