Check Out Episode One of ‘OppU Answers,’ Our New Financial Advice Show!


If you’re a fan of the OppLoans Financial Sense Blog, you’ll know how much we love helping readers sort out complicated financial issues. It’s kind of our thing!

That’s why we are so excited to present our new video series, OppU Answers. It’s an animated advice show that’s designed to answer real consumer questions with the help of bonafide financial experts. Every month, we reach out to our fans on Twitter and Facebook and ask them to give us their biggest questions about all things money. Then, we pick a question and do the research so you don’t have to.

This month’s question came from Lisa, one of our Facebook fans. She wanted to know about emergency funds, so we sat down with financial expert Katie Ross from American Consumer Credit Counseling (@talkcentsblog) to get the lowdown on what they are, how to start one, and how much you should have saved. Check it out:

If you have a big question about money and would like to see it explained in detail to an adorable animated version of yourself, drop us a line on FacebookTwitter, or YouTube for a chance to star in our next episode! And if you want to take your personal finance skills to the next level, be sure to take a look at all the courses on OppU, OppLoans’ whip-smart, education-focused sister site.
